Three Minute Thesis at The University of Auckland: This year, The University of Auckland competition was structured in heats with a University final, and The University of Queensland hosted the inaugural Trans-Tasman competition. The presentations were judged by a panel of three. In a 'Thesis Idol' style set-up, the judges commented on the quality of the presentations. Each heat was judged by three people including faculty academics and communications experts. The entrants were judged on the following criteria: 1. Communication style Was the thesis topic and its significance communicated in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience? 2. Comprehension Did the presentation help the audience understand the research? 3. Engagement Did the oration make the audience want to know more?
