Participate in the 3rd Annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition at Laurier

The 3MT® is an international research communication competition that challenges Laurier PhD and Master’s students to present their research and its significance in just three minutes to a non-specialist audience. Simply, the 3MT® is about how well you communicate your research.  

Why Register?

  • You`ll be rewarded. Presenting in plain language is a vital skill. Demonstrate to your future employer, family and friends that you can expertly talk about a complex idea. If that isn`t enough reward, we are offering $2000 prize money in total.
  • You won`t be alone. You will participate alongside fellow graduate students from across the University.  Learn what your colleagues are doing and cheer each other on as the University celebrates graduate research.
