Enormous congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2020 Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Final.
University of Auckland 3MT® Final
Congratulations to all our finalists, and especially our winners, for a thrilling finale to the University's 2020 Three Minute Thesis competition.
Our judges, Dr Sam Elworthy (Auckland University Press Director), Professor Jennifer Curtin (Politics and International Relations) and Yi-Han Wu (2019 Doctoral and People's Choice Winner), agreed that this year's competition raised the bar in terms of the quality and professionalism of the presentations - and hinted that there wasn't much in it when it came to the winning performances.
The School of Graduate Studies team would like to say a huge thank you to our judges, our finalists and to our stalwart sponsors, whose generous support is the foundation of the competition's success. We would also like to thank faculty staff for the hard work they put into their faculty heats, and to each and every student who has participated. You are all winners to us.
