Let's Talk 3MT: Q&A with Past Contestants/Survivors

The 3 Minute Thesis Competition is an international contest with cash prizes in which graduate students explain their research in under 3 minutes. It is also an unique opportunity to hone presentation skills that can be applied to communicate to audiences in any context.

Specialized training will also be available for all contestants.

In these one-hour sessions, past competitors will share the challenges and high points of being in 3MT, offer tips, and answer any questions you may have:
