QMUL’s 3 Minute Thesis Competition

The 2020 Queen Mary 3 Minute Thesis competition (3MT) will take place online on 4 June 2020 at 10:30am. 3MT is an international research communication competition, in which PhD students have three minutes to tell a non-specialist audience about their research and results. The Queen Mary winner goes on to compete against other PhD students from across the UK and could win a £3k public engagement grant from UKRI. Our finalists represent all three Faculties.

This year’s competition will be hosted on Zoom, please visit to register to attend. Finalists will compete for First and Second place prizes and there will be a people’s choice winner. The First-place winner will also go on to represent QMUL in the national semi-final competition. 

The finalists will be judged by a Panel of QMUL Staff and Researchers
