Research students from across the globe are preparing for the Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®).

It provides a unique opportunity to profile and celebrate the innovative research conducted by postgraduates from around the world.

Active PhD and Professional Doctorate candidates who have successfully passed their Confirmation of Candidature milestone (including candidates whose thesis is under examination) by the date of the Murdoch competition are eligible to participate.  Graduates are not eligible.
