Celebrate culture at UCL at the International Festival Join in

An 80,000-word thesis would take 9 hours to present, but for 3MT you’ve only got… 3 minutes!

The 3MT competition asks Doctoral candidates to present their research in just three minutes, in language appropriate to non-specialists, and with only one single presentation slide to support them. Our very own Nekisa Zakeri from Medical Sciences has done amazingly well to win the the Medical Sciences rounds, the UCL rounds, the national semi-finals, and is now one of six PhD students in the UK final of Three Minute Thesis.

The live finals are taking place soon, so tune in and support Nekisa for coming this far… and maybe, just maybe, for winning the whole thing! (fingers crossed!) 

12:00 - 13:00 (UK time), Wednesday 16 September 12:00 - 13:00, Online
