3 Minute Thesis Competition Final

An 80,000 word thesis would take 9 hours to present; how about in just 3 minutes with the aid of a single slide?

We are inviting DPhil students to do just that. The 3 Minute Thesis competition challenges doctoral candidates to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just three minutes to a non-specialist audience.

Come along to watch the finalist’s of Oxford’s 3MT competition battle it out to be crowned the Oxford Winner.

Oxford will run a two-stage competition, first the heat to select four finalists. Next the final to find the overall winner. The winner of the Oxford final will be entered into the national semi-finals, and if they are successful they will go on to the national final in Birmingham, with their expenses paid to attend.

Up to 4 finalists will all be awarded a prize:

1st prize: £200
Runner-up prizes: £100
There are also prizes for winners in the national final: last year’s winner was awarded a £3,000 grant to spend on public engagement activity, sponsored by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to promote their research and to enhance their professional development.
