Postgraduate Competition: 3 Minute Thesis

Postgraduate Competition: 3 Minute Thesis


An 80,000 word thesis would take nine hours to present, could you do it in three minutes?

The College of Podiatry is launching a new pilot competition for all MSc, PhD and Professional doctorate students studying a subject linked to any area of Podiatry.

The College of Podiatry’s ‘3 Minute Thesis’ challenges all students engaged in research to use their academic, presentation, and research communication skills to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

More about the 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) concept can be found here: 3MT explained

The competition will be open to any post graduate students studying at MSc or PhD level in an area associated with the lower limb.

Each participant is allowed a single stationary slide as a background, but no transitions, no props and it has to be spoken word so no songs or poems we’re afraid.

The best 5 entries will be shortlisted, with entrants winning free registration to this year’s College of Podiatry annual conference in Liverpool, along with an invite to present their entry live during one of the sessions. The winner will be selected by a panel of high profile judges and the people's prize will be selected by the audience.

Please read the following information carefully about how the video should be submitted and presented.


All videos must be in a standard video format.

Please email your 3 minute thesis video, and email along with your details using the form below by the deadline of 31 August 2017.
