3-Minute Thesis Competition LogoAn 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present.

3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. The University of Leicester is hosting its own 3 Minute Thesis competition for the second time in 2015.

Entries will be judged on their ability to communicate research in a non-technical way, their ability to communicate something of the presenter's own excitement for their research area, their ability to engage the audience, and their ability to use the three minutes as effectively as possible.

The competition takes place Wednesday 20 May 2015 in the Ken Edwards Building Lecture Theater One. All University students, postgraduates, and staff are invited to join us 16:00 - 17:00 to hear our twelve presenters and see who will be the Leicester 3 Minute Thesis winner and go on to represent Leicester in the national competition later in the year.

Attendance is FREE but must be booked in advance, to book your place email festival@le.ac.uk
