    2. Competition History • The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a skills development activity which challenges Research Higher Degree students to explain their research project to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes. • Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2008, enthusiasm for the 3MT concept and its adoption in numerous universities led to the development of an international competition. • The 3MT is held each year during September and October.  

    3. Rules A single static PowerPoint slide is permitted (no slide transitions, animations or 'movement' of any description, the slide is to be presented from the beginning of the oration). No additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files) are permitted. No additional props (e.g. costumes, musical instruments, laboratory equipment) are permitted. Presentations are limited to 3 minutes maximum and competitors exceeding 3 minutes are disqualified. Presentations are to be spoken word (e.g. no poems, raps or songs). Presentations are considered to have commenced when a presenter starts their presentation through movement or speech. The decision of the adjudicating panel is final.

    4. Judging Criteria Communication Style - was the thesis topic and its significance communicated in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience? Comprehension- did the presentation help the audience understand the research? Engagement - did the presentationmake the audience want to know more?

    7. Key things to remember – things to avoid Don’t Crowd your slides with too much information Provide huge amounts of text Talk too quickly Use jargon or acronymns Look at your slide Overuse humour – it’s not standup Move around too much Think of it as a lecture – it needs to be a performance

    8. Key things to remember – Do’s Do Be passionate, but relaxed Know your script Stick to time!(you will be disqualified for going over) Practice...a lot – preferably in front of others Remember you are presenting to a lay audience Focus on one or two key points Maintain eye contact with and engage the audience Recognise the opportunity this represents Have fun!
