Time is precious and
so is our research.

1 slide. 3 minutes.
Big ideas.


The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®)
is a national competition celebrating the research undertaken by PhD candidates.

Competing for a chance to represent UniSA at the Asia-Pacific 3MT® Final, our PhD candidates communicate their research using 1 slide, and non-technical language in 3 minutes.

The 2018 UniSA 3MT® Grand Final, presented in partnership with The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, will be held on Thursday 23 August, 6 pm, in the Allan Scott Auditorium, City West campus. The event, hosted by broadcaster and journalist Julia Lester, promises to be an exciting evening of research, entertainment and networking.
