The 2015 three minute thesis competition – are you up to the challenge?

3MTThe 2015 three minute thesis competition will be held very soon. There are already a number of entrants, but we were told you still have a couple more days if you’re interested in entering.

The 3MT is an exercise in developing academic and research communication skills. Higher degrees by research students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

  • Initial rounds of the competition are organised by Schools and Faculties. The top two contestants from each Faculty, plus one from IFM and one wildcard, will go into the University final.
  • The Deakin winner will receive $2000, with $1000 going to the runner-up and $500 going to the People’s Choice awarded by the audience.
  • The winner will be sponsored to travel to represent Deakin in the Trans-Tasman competition in Brisbane on 2nd October , in which there are even more substantial prizes ($5000 for the winner).
