Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition dates
(31 January 2020)
Can you summarise your thesis in just three minutes? The Durham Centre for Academic Development (DCAD) is organising a three-minute thesis competition. Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition. The exercise challenges research higher degree (PhD and MPhil) students to present a compelling talk on their thesis topic and its significance in just three minutes.
Why do it?
3MT develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Winners will be awarded research funds to pay for research and conference trips, books and other research expenses.
