Three Minute Thesis

The University of Regina is a participant in this internationally recognized competition for thesis-based graduate students.

The challenge: Present complex research in three minutes or less, in an accessible and compelling way with the assistance of only one static slide.

Heats and finals are in March, with the winner representing the U of R at the Western Regional Competition. There are thousands of dollars in prize money available and it is an excellent opportunity to develop your presentation skills.
