Deakin University - Three Minute Thesis and Visualise Your Thesis Awards


At last, the winners of these two exciting competitions will be revealed. Enjoy watching the best entries, vote for People's Choice and find out who wins the prestige and prizes.

Join Vice-Chancellor, Professor Iain Martin, as he presents our 3MT and VYT competitions for 2021. Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research, Alfred Deakin Professor Julie Owens, invites you to view each finalist’s short, sharp, fascinating entries.

Come along and celebrate Deakin University's brilliant research students.

Entrants battle it out to win this year's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition and the newer Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) competition.

  • 3MT asks participating Higher Degree by Research students to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in plain English, all in under three minutes!
  • VYT students explain their thesis in a 1-minute video. Fast, punchy, and fascinating.

The winner of each competition is awarded profile, prestige and a $2000 prize and will represent Deakin in the international final.

Attendees vote for the People's Choice Award during the ceremony so be sure to register now to vote for your favourite entry. Voting instructions will be explained at the awards ceremony.

Pro Vice-Chancellor, Researcher Development, Alfred Deakin Professor Matthew Clarke will be our Master of Ceremonies for the event.
