The Three Minute Thesis (or 3MT) is an annual competition running regionally and nationally giving doctoral candidates the challenge of presenting their research and it’s impact in just 3 minutes.
We are very pleased to announce the winners of this year’s 3MT! Thank you to thank all those who submitted a presentation for this year’s virtual competition.
First prize has been awarded to Fiona Fairbairn, Division for the study of Law, Society and Social Justice, and her winning presentation was titled: ‘Raising the Wealthy: Philanthropy, Children and the Inter-Generational Transfer of Wealth’.
Fiona’s presentation has been entered into the national competition held by Vitae and we should hear the outcome of the semi-finals by August. We wish her the best of luck! Second place was awarded to Ines de la Vina, Division of Arts & Humanities whose presentation was titled: ‘Incidental learning of English collocations through different input modes: the effects of individual difference’.
We spoke to Fiona about her progress in her studies and about her experience in the 3MT this year below.
Tell us about yourself!
How did you find the first round of the 3MT as an experience and what have you learned from it?
