Three Minute Thesis Final 2018

05 Jun ‘18

2.00PM - 4.00PM

Three Minute Thesis®

Now in it’s 3rd year here at the University of Stirling, the 2018 Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is expected to be bigger and better than ever.

Could you present your thesis in just 3 minutes using 1 static slide?

The finalists will have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. 3MT is not an exercise in trivialising or ‘dumbing-down’ research, but challenges students to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

3MT guidelines can be found here.

There are prizes for winners: £300 for the winner, £200 for second place and £50 for a people’s choice winner.

Key dates:

11th May  -  Video entries sent to Stirling Graduate School.

15th May  - Finalists announced

5th June - Live final in the PGR Zone

There will also be two drop-in information sessions in the PGR Zone, where you can ask any relevant questions or practice in front of others if you so wish:

22nd March, 11-12pm

19th April, 2-3pm

To sign up for an information session, contact

Audience sign up is via Eventbrite.

PGR Tuesdays

30 Jan ‘18


Starting 30th January, come along every Tuesday with your lunch to chill, chat and share your experiences with fellow PhD students. On alternate Tuesdays, staff who have also been PhD students here at Stirling, will share their experiences of being a PGR student and thereafter transitioning into work. The session will then be opened out for discussion and questions. 

Tea/coffee and cake provided.

Come and see Dr Lynne Falconer on 13th February 2018.

Dr Lynne Falconer will talk about her experience completing her PhD as part of a large multi-collaborator project. She will discuss how to balance the needs of the larger project with a PhD and the challenges and opportunities that can arise. Lynne will also talk about moving from PhD to Postdoc and developing a career in academic research.
