PhD student wins People’s Choice Prize in the UK Final of the 3 Minute Thesis competition
A huge congratulations goes out to our very own Maddie Long, who has won the People’s Choice Prize in the UK Final of the 3 Minute Thesis competition.
Maddie, a Linguistics and English Language PhD student who studies in the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences, was awarded the prize for her presentation ‘Language and the Brain: The Skye’s the Limit.’
She competed against 56 semi-finalists, as well as six finalists from UK universities at the final in Manchester on 12 September, to win an invitation to speak at the Royal Institution in Spring 2017, arranged by Speakezee.
Maddie secured her place in the UK final by winning the University’s 3 Minute Thesis competition earlier this year.
