Each year, Central Clinical School graduate research (GR) students compete in the "Three Minute Thesis" competition (3MT), offered in every Australian university.
The CCS 3MT competition is an opportunity for our GR students to convey the relevance and importance of their research in just 3 minutes. It is an excellent opportunity to achieve a higher profile for research students and their work. The Monash 3MT finalist will then be invited to represent Monash University at the Asia-Pacific 3MT competition, which will be held in Queensland at the University of Queensland.
2021 CCS 3MT competition details
The School's annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition will take place on 27 May, pitting eleven brave young researchers (see detail below) against each other in a bid to explain their research in plain English, and in only three minutes. The competition is a wonderful opportunity to practice sharing complex but vital research with a lay audience.
