About the competition
- Students have three minutes only to describe what they are doing, why they are doing it (the importance/impact of the research) and how they are doing it.
- Only one powerpoint slide is permitted (optional) and no additional electronic media (e.g. sound or video files) or props may be used.
- In additional to financial prozes awarded to the winners of the UC Final, there is a national Three Minute Thesis (3MT) for Master's students.
