Doctoral Morning Tea

The Doctoral Morning Tea (DMT) is a monthly event for all doctoral candidates at the University of Auckland which allows you to meet and mingle with other doctoral candidates in a relaxed environment. Keep up-to-date on what’s happening and listen to informative guest speakers present on topics relevant to the life of a doctoral candidate.

They are normally held on the third Thursday of every month from February to November, depending on speaker availability.

Our next DMT is:

  • Time: 10-11am
  • When: Thursday 21 September 2017
  • Venue: iSpace, level 4, KEIC, City Campus

All new and current doctoral students are welcome to attend, so put this in your calender and register to secure a spot now.

For catering purposes, please register your DMT attendance.

Three Minute Thesis Competition

The ultimate elevator pitch, the 3 Minute Thesis Competition is run in universities worldwide. You are given just 3 minutes in which to explain the gist of your thesis. One single PowerPoint slide is permitted as a visual aid.
