The UNM 3MT® competition was held on 5 September 2018 and a total of 8 contestants from various disciplines took part in this year’s competition.
Anusha will now progress to the video round to compete against the other Nottingham campuses. The overall winner will represent the entire University of Nottingham at the Universitas 21 (U21) Final, also via video, which will be judged by an international panel of industry and academic professionals.
