2023 3MT Event

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition showcases the excellent research being undertaken by HDR candidates across our Schools and Institutes. 3MT challenges you to present your research thesis to a general audience in only three minutes and using just one slide.

We are pleased to inform you that Western Sydney University (WSU) will be participating in the 2023 Asia-Pacific 3MT Competition. We invite Associate Deans, HDR Directors and HDR Admins to host a School/Institute 3MT Competition to select a candidate for the WSU 3MT Competition.

HDR candidates are encouraged to contact your School/Institute for details about a School/Institute 3MT Competition.
