We are proud to showcase the outstanding work of our research students at events open to the public each year. We welcome representatives from industry, alumni, government and academia to view student research projects in progress and network with our PhD, MPhil and Honours candidates.
The popular 3MT competition displays the breadth and depth of our student research projects and is a highlight of the academic year. A fun and rigorous event, 3MT puts our world-class research on display in a highly accessible way. Through three-minute ‘pitches’, 3MT supports PhD candidates to develop their presentation and communication skills and translate academic ideas effectively to a general audience.
Business School students compete during heats, and three winners then progress to the UNSW 3MT interfaculty final. The UNSW finalist then presents at the Australia and New Zealand 3MT Competition, joining representatives from more than 30 other Universities from the region.

Our Student Research Fair showcases the work of our postgraduate research degree and undergraduate honours students in an engaging and accessible visual format. Students present an aspect of the research they are undertaking for their thesis through graphs, diagrams and tables, and are awarded for clarity, rigour and relevance.
Honours and Postgraduate Research Degree students submit a PowerPoint slide that visually represents an aspect of their thesis. Students must then be prepared to present their slide in front of other students, staff and guests attending the Research Fair and describe their research in a few minutes. Cash prizes are awarded to the winning entries.
