Three Minute Thesis competition

The challenge for doctoral researchers: communicate your research in just 180 seconds.

The annual Three Minute Thesis competition challenges competitors to be clear, compelling and, above all, concise as they deliver a spoken presentation on their research topic in a mere 180 seconds.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

The BDC is currently investigating the viability of holding the semi-final and final of Bristol's Three Minute Thesis competition as online events.

PGRs who applied to take part in this year's contest have been advised of the situation, and a further announcement will be made as soon as we have received guidance from the bodies that oversee the competition.

I urge everyone to have a go at the 3MT and take part in Research without Borders. You get a snapshot of all the research at the University that you might never even have realised is happening...Lifting your head above the water every now and again to see what is going on around you is a habit we should all get into – and what better way than these two fantastic celebrations of research at the University of Bristol.
