Event highlights

The Three Minute Thesis Competition at Birkbeck

Birkbeck is hosting a 3 minute thesis competition. This event allows you to enhance your presentation skills and showcase your research. The challenge is to explain your thesis to a non-specialist audience, in only 3 minutes.

All students entering receive training and support to make the most of their 3 minutes on stage and have the added bonus of a chance of winning a £500 prize. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to communicate your research in a way that is popular with PhD students around the world.

Please note: The competition has been postponed until June - the date will be announced in the coming weeks.

Additional training and opportunities to enter the competition will be announced in due course.
