3 Minute Thesis


The annual 3 Minute Thesis competition gives graduate researchers from across the university a platform to share the ideas that drive their work and compete for $4,000 in cash prizes.

But there's a catch. They only get 180 seconds to make their pitch.

First developed by the University of Queensland, 3MT competitions are held in over 600 universities worldwide. 2020 saw over 80 graduate students from across Dalhousie participate in the preliminary heats.

While registration for the 2021 competition won't open until February, it's never too early to start thinking of your presentation. For some inspiration, have a look at this year's top three finishers. Presentations from each of the 10 finalists can be seen on our YouTube channel
