Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students.
Developed by 
The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills.
The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
