The Postgraduate Research Showcase is an event organised by UNSW Science that recognises the outstanding research of postgraduate students.
It's an annual showcase of student research that allows our students to present their work and win several prizes.
The Three Minute Thesis Competition allows students to present their thesis topic and its significance, encouraging the consolidation of ideas and research discoveries.
PhD candidates or Masters by Research students in a UNSW Science postgraduate research program are eligible to apply for the Postgraduate Research Showcase. All candidates must be enrolled at UNSW.
Applicants enrolled for more than four years (PhD candidates) or more than two years (Master by Research) are ineligible.
Applicants must have demonstrated satisfactory progress towards completion of their degree at their most recent Annual Progress Review. If you're a first-year student who has not undertaken an annual review, a confirmation email of your progress from your supervisor or School Postgraduate Coordinator will be accepted.
Please note that MPhil and MRes candidates are eligible to enter the faculty heats and may proceed to the Interfaculty final; however, will not be allowed to progress to the Trans-Tasman Final.
Judging of the one-minute presentation will be based on communication style, clarity of topic and audience engagement. Judging is conducted by high-profile science communicators and/or scientific research academics.
