Attend ACU's Three Minute Thesis final

What can you do in three minutes? Make a cup of tea? Send 10 emails? Explain an 80,000 word thesis?

The 3MT is an annual event for doctoral research candidates. With just one PowerPoint slide and three minutes on the clock, they must explain their thesis research to an audience not familiar with their field.

The ACU Final will be held in the Peter Cosgrove Centre, North Sydney with the winner representing ACU at the Asia-Pacific Finals in Queensland later this year.

The ACU Final will be live-streamed and all viewers will have the opportunity to vote online for the People’s Choice Award.

The Winner and Runners-up prize are kindly sponsored by the Co-op Bookshop.
