First edition of LUNEX 3MT competition

The first edition of our LUNEX 3MT competition took place in the auditorium.

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. Researchers have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. It is run every year is more than 200 universities around the world.

The competition supports our student’s capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. At LUNEX University, we think developing your oral skills is a key part of becoming a good researcher. The 3MT is therefore a good opportunity for our students to work on their eloquence.
Thank you to all participants, and congratulations to our winner Sam Catani with the Judge’s Choice Award and a prize of 500 euros.
Jean-Michel Wolter and Paul Strainchamps tie for 2nd place and a prize of 150 euros each. Jean-Michel Wolter goes home with the People’s Choice award as well and a prize of 200 euros.

The language of instruction in all courses at LUNEX is English. You should therefore be able to speak and understand English well. You have the opportunity to participate in the Pre-Bachelor Foundation Programme and improve your English if your language skills do not meet the entrance requirements for study at Bachelor level.

We will inform you in the course of the application process which supporting documents have to be provided and when. In principle, we need the following documents for your application:

  • Copy of your personal ID
  • Copy of the highest educational and/or vocational qualification

Depending on the degree programme (Bachelor/Master) and your country of origin (EU/non-EU), further documents may be required. More details will be provided to you in good time.

To secure a study place, we recommend that you send us your documents as soon as possible – but at the latest two weeks before the start of your studies. If you are an applicant from outside the EU, you should note that the application process for a visa can take four to 60 days. Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time.
