Three Minute Thesis

Three Minute Thesis

An 80,000 word thesis would take nine hours to present. Their time limit ... three minutes. 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.

Host: David Capson, Faculty of Graduate Studies
