What is Three Minute Thesis (3MT)?
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) challenges doctoral candidates to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just three minutes using just one static PowerPoint slide. In the UK, the 3MT national competition final is hosted by Vitae. Individual UK universities run their own competitions and put forward one winner per participating institution for the national finals. The University of Manchester is one of around 40 institutions participating in 2019.
