UCD Graduate Studies invites you to attend the ThesisIn3 competition 2020
Research students are challenged to present their research in three minutes, using only one slide, to a non-specialist audience. Entrants must distil their niche subjects and intensive research into bite-sized presentations that will inform and entertain.
The winner of ThesisIn3 will go on to represent UCD in the Universitas21 Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®)
When and where
The ThesisIn3 Competition will take place on Friday 19 June 2020, from 11:30-12:30 via Zoom.
The videos will be shown, followed by a Q&A and announcement of the winning entries by Professor Barbara Dooley, Dean of Graduate Studies and Deputy Registrar.
All members of the UCD Community are welcome to spectate. Come along with a tea/coffee to enjoy the presentations and support the participating students:

UCD Graduate Studies
We hope you are staying well and staying connected. We realise that working and studying remotely can present particular challenges. The University is keen to support you, however we can.

When: Tuesday 5th May at 11am
Where: via Zoom
Sign up here (we will send the Zoom details to everyone who registers)
Professor Barbara Dooley, Dean of Graduate Studies will attend and we encourage you to come along. This is a great and informal opportunity to connect with fellow students and ask questions you may have, particularly with the Dean present.
Please also find attached Staying Well When Doing Research. This is a short adaptation of Hugh Kearns’ book ‘52 Ways of Staying Well’. We hope this may be a useful reference for you.
We would also like to remind you that we are maintaining a COVID-19 FAQ, which is being updated regularly. We encourage you all to stay in touch regularly with your supervisor.
Finally, a small request: we plan a revamp of the Graduate Studies website and would appreciate feedback from you, the students, as a key user group. Please provide your feedback via this short form.
We hope to see you on campus again before too long.
In the meantime, hope to chat to many of you over a cup of tea/coffee next week.
