Postgraduate Researchers: Tickets available for Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Final

The Academy is hosting the University of Liverpool’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Final on Wednesday, 19 June, with tickets now available. The prestigious competition challenges doctoral candidates to give a compelling spoken presentation of their research to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes, with just one slide.

This is your opportunity to cheer on the nine University of Liverpool finalists from across the three faculties as they battle to be crowned UoL 3MT® champion and have your say on the day, by voting for your favourite 3MT® presentation in the People’s Choice category.

The award-winning spaces at the Spine Building provide the backdrop to the event. The day will afford numerous opportunities for conversation and networking, whilst simultaneously celebrating and supporting the research of our talented PGR Community. It will also feature an exciting workshop on ‘The Art of the Q&A’.

The winner of the University of Liverpool competition will be entered into the quarterfinals of the highly regarded UK-wide competition hosted by Vitae.

We know from last year’s inaugural event that having staff and colleagues from the applicants’ home faculties makes a huge difference to the atmosphere of the event, creating a supportive and exciting environment where our candidates can perform at their best. So please do join us to celebrate this year’s fantastic finalists and encourage others in your respective areas to do the same.
