What is Three Minute Thesis?

Initiated in 2008 by the University of Queensland, Three Minute Thesis competitions have spread across the world, offering both undergraduates and graduate students the opportunity to refine their abilities in orally communicating their research.

The CHC Three Minute Thesis competition challenges students to prepare and present a compelling speech about their thesis project and explain its significance to an educated audience using only one presentation image.
