3 Minute Thesis Information Session

Can you sell your thesis in just 3 minutes?

3 Minute Thesis Information Session CaRST Credit 1 hour. Domain D: Engagement, Influence and Impact. Face to Face.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an annual skills development activity that challenges Higher Degree by Research students to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes using a single PowerPoint slide. It is not an exercise in trivialising or 'dumbing-down' research; the oration should engage the audience without reducing research to entertainment value alone.

This information session will provide information on the rules and requirements of the competition, the competition format and how to successfully sell your thesis in 3 minutes!

Please note that participation in the Three Minute Thesis will earn an additional 5 CaRST hours (see table of Experiential Activities for more information)
