About HASS Faculty 3MT Competitions

The University of Queensland's 3-Minute Thesis competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
