The applications for the 2020 3MT Thesis competition are now open. Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an international research communication competition developed in 2008 by The University of Queensland (UQ). Graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration of their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising research, but instead it is a challenge to students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.
Since it began, the popularity of the competition has increased and 3MT competitions are now held at over 600 universities in more than 65 countries worldwide. This will be the 8th annual competition at the University of Manitoba.
