VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Three Minute Thesis

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

2020 will be the second 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 at the University of Alberta and have a chance to represent the western region at the national competition.
