Each interview will last 15 minutes. You will be informed of your time slot through email.
Room 5589A (inside Graduate Commons) via Lifts 29-30, Academic Building
The pre-selection interview aims at selecting the participants with strong everyday communication skills, not necessarily research-related. The questions will be randomly selected. The participants have limited time (e.g. one or two minutes) to answer each question. No presentation or slides are needed.
All participants will be notified of the results within a week after all the interviews are finished.

Q: I am a 1st-year student and have not got any research results yet. How should I prepare?
A: If you have not produced any research results yet, you do not have to “describe the key results of the research including conclusions and outcomes”. However, you should adhere to all the other rules and judging criteria of 3MT®.
