ThesisIn3

 

Graduate Studies announce the fifth annual UCD ThesisIn3 competition. The UCD ThesisIn3 supports graduate research students in their development as confident research communicators, and we invite all UCD Stage 2 PhD Students to submit an entry and share your research with the UCD community.

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 general public.

U21 3MT® 2022 Competition Update

This year U21 have received 20 excellent entries, which have already won their own University's internal 3 Minute Thesis and have now been put forward for U21's Global Competition. The presentation with the most public votes will receive the People's Choice Prize. The People’s Choice vote is now open from Tuesday 20th September at 9am until Monday 3rd October.

You can cast your vote here supporting Tara Brady from UCD School of Medicine who is the UCD winner of Thesis In 3 2022 this year!

Good luck Tara!
