3MT Competition

3MT 2019 - Friday, April 5, 2019

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic speech competition developed by The University of Queensland for research students. Students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ the research, but rather a challenge to consolidate ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.


The competition is open to all graduate students at TWU engaged in research-based programs (i.e. eligible for Tri-Agency funding).


This is a great opportunity to:

  • explain why your research is compelling and valuable
  • connect with faculty, researchers, and other graduate students
  • compete for a spot in the Western Division competition
  • and, possibly, the national competition
  • help promote community involvement and awareness of important research in Graduate Studies at TWU

For those not choosing to compete, this is a chance to come out and support your friends. While a select panel will judge the competition, one of the winners will be chosen by the audience.

This competition is hosted by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies at TWU.
