3MT previous competitions

  Hannah MacDougall speaking at the 2015 3MT competitionWhat previous participants have said about 3MT

"3MT gives the opportunity to not only showcase one's passion but also to do so in a creative manner."

"They were three of the most challenging, yet at the same time interesting, rewarding and most confident minutes of my PhD life."

"I think the 3MT challenge is an excellent opportunity to clearly and concisely communicate with an audience not necessarily versed in your particular field."

"The 3MT helped hone the central argument of my thesis, as well as refine the way that I explain and pitch my ideas."
