Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that challenges Ph.D. students and postdoctoral appointees to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
