The Graduate School is offering the following opportunity for all GCU Doctoral Students:
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) information session
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) was developed by The University of Queensland to celebrate the exciting research conducted by PhD Students. Participants have one slide and 3 minutes to present their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Since its inception in 2008, the popularity of 3MT has grown, and competitions are now held in over 200 universities across more than 18 countries worldwide.
Following the successful first run of 3MT at GCU in 2015 and again in 2016, The Graduate School are calling all GCU doctoral students at every stage of research to get involved in this initiative. Training sessions will be provided to everyone to support the preparation of presentations, and there is no obligation to enter the competition after attending the training. A short video interviewing the finalists from the 2015 competition gives an indication of what doctoral students can expect from participating in 3MT.
This session will provide information and give potential participants the opportunity to ask questions. Doctoral supervisors that wish to know more about the initiative are also encouraged to attend.
The GCU 3MT final will take place as part of GCU’s Research Day celebrations on Thursday 15 June 2017, the judges choice and overall winner and also the Peoples Choice winner will receive prizes in funding issued by the Graduate School to go towards public engagement with your research. The winner (judges choice) will go on to represent GCU in the UK 3MT competition.
