UBC Three Minute Thesis Finals | March 13

3MT-Three-Minute-Thesis-2013

The UBC 3MT Finals are this Thursday!

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that assists current graduate students with fostering effective presentation and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research project to a non-specialist audience. In 2012, over 30 universities across Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and the South Pacific participated in this fun, highly informative and very entertaining event. UBC is one of the first Universities in North America to host a 3MT competition.

The finals are happening from 4:30pm – 6pm at the Graduate Student Centre Ballroom. Everyone is welcome to attend and cheer on the finalists!

For more information, visit the UBC Graduate and Post-Doctoral Studies website.
