UBC Okanagan is excited to host the Western Regional 3MT® Competition on May 8, 2024.

Our campus will welcome participants from across Western Canada who will share their research in three minutes using non-specialist language.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a global academic competition started by The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia in 2008. Since then, the competition has spread throughout universities across the globe.

The competition showcases students’ innovative research while helping students develop effective presentation and communication skills. Research-based master’s and doctoral students are challenged to present their research in a mere 180 seconds using just one static slide.

The judges look for clear language, a well-structured presentation that engages the audience, and a slide that is designed to support the speaker’s points.

Come on out and cheer on our UBC Okanagan competitor! Registration is only required for in-person. attendance.
