The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition is open to graduate students enrolled in Canadian universities. Participants have three minutes or less to present their research to a panel of non-specialist judges, and competitions are held at local, provincial, and national levels. The challenge is to present complex research information in an engaging, accessible, and compelling way. 

This competition is a unique opportunity for graduate students to showcase their innovative and significant research to a wider audience, across disciplines within the University, and to the broader public. This year’s competition at the University of Toronto will be open to students from both research-stream and professional programs at the masters and Ph.D. level.

UTM will be hosting a preliminary heat on December 6, 2023 with prizes for the best presentations valued at $300 and $100 respectively. To learn more and register, visit the UTM website:
