RD3MT - Condensing your research into 3 minutes: 3MT Information Session

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where a non-expert in your field asks you "So, what do you work on?" and you weren't sure where to start from? Have you ever struggled explaining to your family what your research is about?

This session will help you think how you can condense your work into 3 minutes, without dumping it down, and make it accessible to a non-specialist audience. You will be given the opportunity to practise in a safe environment and we'll look at examples from previous contestants of the 3 Minute Thesis competition.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an international research communication competition. As the name implies, PhD students have just three minutes to tell a non-specialist audience about their research and results.

This session will also introduce you to the 3MT® competition and will give you the opportunity to find out more about the timeline for the 2020 QMUL 3MT® competition and ask any questions you might have. All PhD students are welcome!
