Value of participating in your university’s ‘Thesis in 3’ competition:
'The UCD competition helped me to be concise and clear when presenting my research. It also helped to summarize everything I do in short presentation and to verbalize the impact that I am hoping to achieve with this research. This greatly contributes to the vision for the research project without which it is really hard to work every day.'
