3 Minute Thesis Competition

We are excited to announce the inaugural Science heats for the University’s 3 Minute Thesis competition.

In this competition students have three minutes to explain their thesis with the help of one single static PowerPoint slide.  All that study and thousands of words? Why not take on the challenge of explaining your thesis in just three minutes? Science heats will be held on 18 and 19 July. One masters and one doctoral winner will be chosen and these successful participants will go forward to the University Final on 3 August.  There are great prizes to be won and the winners of the University finals will represent us at the Inter Uni-Masters Challenge at Victoria University in Wellington ( Masters winner) on 24 August 2017 or at the 3MT Asia-Pacific Final in Brisbane (Doctoral winner) on 29 September 2017

Entries are open to research masters students and doctoral candidates undertaking research – Masters students must be currently enrolled in a research project of 90 points or more; doctoral candidates must have successfully passed their confirmation milestones (successfully completed their Provisional Year). Doctoral and masters candidates whose theses are under examination are eligible to compete; graduates are not eligible.

This is an excellent opportunity for networking and to develop vital presentation skills- and to win prizes and travel!   We look forward to your registration!
