You are invited to the grand final of the Three Minute Thesis on Wednesday 14 June, from 5.30pm to 7.00pm in the Bronte Lecture Theatres (BLG/05). The top six people from the Huddersfield semi-final will be performing their three minute theses and a winner and runner-up will be chosen by the judges. The winner wins £1,000 and an entry into the national semi-finals. The runner-up will win £500. You will also be able to get involved with the people’s choice award, which the audience choose by voting for your favourite. The people’s choice winner will win £250. 

The challenge

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present. The University of Huddersfield’s  doctoral research students have been challenged to present their thesis in just 3 minutes.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland in 2008, in which doctoral researchers have just three minutes to deliver an engaging presentation on their thesis topic, its originality and its significance.
