3M thesis competition is coming up

Planning RHD Students:

The School of Earth and Environmental Sciences invites you to participate in the 2016 Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition.

The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges PhD students to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. 3MT celebrates the discoveries made by research students and encourages you to communicate the importance of your research to the broader community.

Over 200 UQ research candidates participated in the competition in 2017. Don’t miss this opportunity to practise your presentation skills, meet other RHD candidates, and have a chance to win up to $8,000 in prizes!

The SEES 3MT competition will be held at 10:00am on Wednesday 2nd August 2017, and we would like to encourage all students to participate. If you apply for School Research Grant funding you are expected to participate in the 3MT at least once during your candidature.

The winning student will go on to compete in the Faculty 3MT, and may proceed to the UQ 3MT Final and the 2017 Trans-Tasman 3MT Competition.

To learn more about the competition history, rules, and gain valuable preparation tips, visit the 3MT website or email 3MT for further information.
