Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition Finals

An 80,000-word thesis would take nine hours for a grad student to present. The time limit in this fast-paced competition—three minutes. The Three Minute Thesis is an exciting competition that challenges graduate students to describe their research in a clear, engaging and jargon-free presentation using just one slide—in 180 seconds. Master's and PhD students from across campus will participate in the final round of the UVic competition in front of a panel of esteemed judges.

Judges include:

Jamie Cassels, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Victoria
Bob McDonald, host of CBC’s Quirks and Quarks
Maureen Sawa, CEO of the Greater Victoria Public Library
Dave Obee, Editor-in-Chief of the Times Colonist
Yvonne Blomer, Poet Laureate for the City of Victoria
