Congratulations to the winners of our 3MT competition


Thank you to everyone who's taken part in, and supported the competition, in the faculty heats and in our first university final, and made it such a success.

Opening the event Professor David Maguire, Vice Chancellor said 

How do you summarise an 80,000 word thesis and three years of hard labour in 3 minutes? 

The judges will be looking at comprehension, content, engagement and communication. 

The 3MT® is an internationally recognised competition that was developed by The University of Queensland, Australia in 2008.  There are currently 652 universities from 67 countries that participate in the competition and 99 of those are UK universities, of which we are one. 

The winner of the university final is eligible to enter the national 2019 Vitae 3MT competition, and this will be the first time we have submitted an entry into the national Vitae competition - good luck!
