Three Minute Thesis Finalists

We are delighted to announce the finalists for our King's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition which will take place both online and in-person on Wednesday 29 March.

The 3MT Grand Final will be live streamed to YouTube from 15:30 until 16:30 to make it easy for you to watch our postgraduate research students in action as they explain their research in just three minutes using only a single presentation slide.

You will be able to vote for your favourite to win our People's Choice Award of £500! Voting opens on 29 March.

There will also be a First Prize of £500 and Runner Up Prize of £250 as selected by our Judging Panel.

The winner of the King's Grand Final will continue to the national 3MT Competition, organised by Vitae
