The Careers Team from UNSW Employability runs programs to help UNSW HDR candidates to critically think about their current path and career opportunities and assist them in laying the foundation for a successful future career transition. Contact us for more information.
The Researcher Development Unit (RDU) offers workshops and events for researchers to support skills training, opportunities for practical experience and to develop career readiness within candidates.
All researchers require a number of critical skills. Most importantly, you must be able to communicate your work and present its importance to different audiences. The 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition allows you to demonstrate both skills simultaneously.
In the lead up to the UNSW 3MT competition, the faculty runs a 3MT heat between June and August every year. We recommend that you take part in the 3 Minute Thesis Development Series: Webinar & Workshops to prepare your 3MT presentation.
