The University of York Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition challenges PhD students to educate and engage the audience with their research in just three minutes.

Research students pitch their work against the clock, often to a nail biting finish! They are competing to communicate the impact of their research to an audience and judging panel. The top three receive prizes and coaching for the national 3MT semi-final. Many of our finalists also put themselves forward for Falling Walls Labs.

3MT was developed by the University of Queensland to celebrate the best research. Find out the breadth of work being undertaken at York through clear, engaging and concise presentations.
