minutes could change our world...

Time is precious and so is our research.

1 slide. 3 minutes. Big ideas.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a national competition celebrating the research undertaken by PhD candidates.

Competing for a chance to represent UniSA in the Asia-Pacific 3MT Competition, our PhD candidates communicate their research using 1 slide, and non-technical language in 3 minutes.

The 2020 UniSA 3MT Final was held on Thursday 27 August, in partnership with The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre. Missed the online broadcast? Watch the videos below to learn more about candidates' big ideas.



The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.
