Research presentation

The 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition challenges doctoral researchers to deliver the best research presentation in just 3 minutes using only one slide.

The competition is based on a concept developed by the University of Queensland which quickly spread across Australia and New Zealand, and has gone global.

The University of Edinburgh has run a 3MT competition every year since 2013, organised by the Institute for Academic Development.
