Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students. Developed by The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

Prevalent in the sciences, Poster Presentations provide graduate students the opportunity to present research they conducted as an individual or team. Presentations are 15 minutes including Q&A.

Panels are a collection of oral presentations conveying theory, research results, or other scholarly content that is focused on one or related topics. Each panel lasts 45 minutes, includes a short introduction by a moderator, and consist of at least three graduate students.

Microtalks are 3-5 minute informal talks that allow students to share their work-in-progress. Student presenters will cultivate communication skills and garner critical feedback to potentially elevate future research endeavors.

At the Art Exhibition, student presenters can present their work alongside posters to share their vision and techniques to an engaged audience.
