Birkbeck 3MT: Thursday 16 June 2022
Join a selection of Birkbeck PhD students as they compete to communicate their compelling thesis topics in just three minutes. This event has provided some outstanding opportunities to share and celebrate the interests and successes of PhD researchers from across the College and we will invite all current Birkbeck PhD students to take part. The winner of the Birkbeck competition will be chosen by an expert panel of judges who will award:
- £500 to the overall winner
- £250 to the runner up
- The audience will also have their say by picking a people’s choice winner who’ll win a special prize.

All potential competitors for the Birkbeck Three Minute Thesis Competition will be invited to attend training sessions which will prepare them and will provide useful skills beyond the competition.
This is an international event and the Birkbeck winner will have the opportunity to continue on to the UK semi-finals later in the year.
Registration will open in 2022 and will be announced on the BGRS blog and via a BGRS email to all Birkbeck research students.
