The Three Minute Thesis is an international competition for higher degree research candidates to showcase their research. Candidates present to an audience on what their research is and why it is important in plain language for three minutes, with only a single PowerPoint slide. The winner of the #ANU3MT final will go on to compete in the Asia Pacific final, held at the University of Queensland.
ANU has achieved incredible success with the 3MT competition. In 2019, Lithin Louis from the John Curtin School of Medical Research won silver in the 3MT Asia Pacific final in Brisbane, in 2016 Joshua Chu-Tan from the John Curtin School of Medical Research won the 3MT Asia Pacific final in Brisbane and in 2014, Rosanna Stevens from the College of Arts and Social Sciences won second place and people's choice in the trans-Tasman final at the University of Western Australia.
The ANU also hosts the largest final in the world, with over 1,000 annually attend to hear how our PhD candidates are changing the world around them.
College student, Jessica Sharmin Rahman of the Research School of Computer Science, will talk about "Do you know how music makes you feel?".
The final will be streamed live via zoom. Register your free ticket to attend here.
