Announcing the 3MT® competition for PhD students from across all UCT faculties
The Faculty Postgraduate Student Associations* invite you to the 2nd UCT hosted 3-Minute Thesis competition
Thursday, 28 September 2017 – 10h30 to 14h00

What’s it all about?
Students have 3 minutes to present their PhD research** to a non-specialist audience, verbally and with a single static Powerpoint slide. Please note that this event will be recorded and streamed.
All registered PhD students who have completed sufficient research to tell a compelling story (most likely those planning submission in 2017 and early 2018) may enter.
UCT monetary prizes to first place, runner up, and a ‘People’s choice’ award. In addition, the winner will represent UCT at the national 3MT® finals competition.

* Under the auspices of the Office for Postgraduate Studies and Researcher Development
** The ability to present research in a clear and coherent manner to an audience who know little, or nothing, about your area of study is an important skill that all doctoral students need to develop. 3MT® encourages you to develop your research communication skills and your capacity to explain your research using non-technical language to a non-specialist audience. The competition further aims to showcase the research work that our doctoral students across the University have undertaken.
