Description

On Thursday 2 May we will be holding the Birkbeck 2019 Three Minute Thesis Competition. This exciting event provides opportunities to celebrate a diverse range of work from Doctoral Researchers across the College.


The Three Minute Thesis Competition

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present... their time limit? 3 Minutes! The competition will take place in front of a public audience and will be filmed and available online after the event.

Join a selection of Birkbeck's PhD students as they compete to communicate their compelling thesis topics in just three minutes. The winner will be chosen by an expert panel of judges who will award:

  • £500 to the overall winner

The audience will also get a chance to have their say by picking a people’s choice winner who’ll win a special prize. You can find out more about winning entries from the 2018 Birkbeck Three Minute Thesis Competition here.
