3MT is an exercise in developing academic and research communication skills.

Higher degrees by research students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

This year's winner gets a trip to Queensland to compete in the national final in October, plus $2000 in prize money.

The winner will also get to present their Thesis on The Science Show on ABC Radio National.

The final will be held at Deakin University’s Burwood campus.

“We are encouraging the supporters from the faculties and institutes to come along and support their entrants,” said Professor Roger Horn, Director of Research Training at Deakin.
