Participants in the St Vincent's Precinct heat of the UNSW Faculty of Medicine Three Minute Thesis Competition, held at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia.

The Three Minute Thesis competition or 3MT, is an annual competition held in universities across Australasia. It is open to anyone completing a higher degree by research, and challenges participants to present their research in just 180 seconds, in an engaging form that can be understood by an intelligent audience with no background in the research area. This exercise develops presentation, research and academic communication skills and supports the development of research students' capacity to explain their work effectively.

History[edit]

The competition originated at the University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008. There are currently three categories, UQ, Trans-Tasman and International.
