To participate in 3MT @UBC you must currently be registered in a graduate program at UBC. PhD students who have defended but have not yet graduated are eligible. Students must not have graduated prior to the date of the competition final.

Students who have competed in past 3MT @UBC competitions may participate. Their presentation must be new for each competition.

Presentations must be based on research that is directly related to the student’s graduate program thesis. Research performed for employment should not be presented.

Presenters must be available to present, in person, on the day of their heat, and may only participate in one heat per year. To advance in the competition, heat winners must also be available to present, in person, at the Graduate Student Centre (Point Grey campus) for the semi-final and final.
