The University of Nottingham Malaysia will hold its 2018 Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®) on Wednesday 5 September 2018 at the Great Hall. If you are 1) a PhD student who have / would have passed your 1st year review by the time of the competition and 2) interested or contemplating about being a competitor as a new or returning participant, you must attend the briefing on Monday 23 July 2018 at 10am in H1B13.
