VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Three Minute Thesis

 Founded by the University of Queensland

3MT participant

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a university-wide competition for graduate students in which participants present their graduate work and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges. The challenge is to present complex issues in an accessible and compelling way, with the assistance of only one static slide.

2024 will be the fifth year for VIU to participate in this exciting competition. Over 40 Canadian universities are taking part. The VIU winner will represent our university at the regional finals hosted by the University of British Columbia Okanagan, on May 8, 2024.

Join us for the VIU 3MT Final!
