Three Minute Thesis

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition challenges research-based master’s and PhD students to present their research to a layperson audience in three minutes or less. Students are allowed one slide, but no props and no notes.

The competition, first established in 2008 at the University of Queensland, offers students the opportunity to improve their communication skills, network with fellow academics, win thousands of dollars in prizes and, most importantly, share their important research with the world!

Laurier’s graduate students will be competing March 28 in the Senate and Board Chambers. The event will be emceed by Douglas Deutschman, dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. The judges will be announced soon.

Audience members are encouraged to come watch. It’s free and no registration is necessary.

Winners from the competition will proceed to the provincial competition, at York University on April 19, 2018.
