Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a competition developed by the University of Queensland which challenges doctoral students to deliver a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance, in just three minutes.

Sheffield Hallam will be holding its 2019 3MT® Final on Monday 17 June 2019 as part of the University Creating Knowledge Conference. As well as winning a prize of £250 towards attending an academic conference of their choice, the winner will be put forward as SHU’s entry to the UK national competition.

All you have to do is present your doctoral research topic to a mixed-disciplinary audience – using one slide and in no more than three minutes.

We will be holding 3MT® heats at both campuses, and you are welcome to participate in either heat regardless of where you are usually based.  The three strongest presenters from each heat, plus the two highest-scoring runners up, will go through to SHU’s final on 17 June.
