Join us for the School of Political Science and International Studies Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT). In 3MT, students have 3 minutes to communicate the significance of their research in a language understandable to a lay audience. The UQ competition begins with school and institute heats, with the winner progressing to one of the seven faculty/institute finals. The winner of each faculty/institute final then progresses to the final. The people's choice winner from each faculty/institute final has the opportunity to participate in the Wildcard competition of which the winner is offered a place in the final as the Wildcard entrant.

For more information visit the UQ Graduate School website.


The University of Queensland (UQ), 3MT competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
