Event details

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a science communication competition which challenges postgraduate researchers to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes.

Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008, enthusiasm for the 3MT concept has led to its adoption internationally including at several UK institutions, and we are very excited to be running our first competition at the University of Southampton during 2013/14.
