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.
Bristol has a very impressive track record at the UK level. In 2017, Alfie Wearn, who delivered a presentation on Alzheimer’s research during May’s Research without Borders event, made it all the way to the national final.
