3MT

Congratulations to Antoni Tsaputra, PhD candidate in the School of Social Sciences, for winning Third Prize (sponsored by Arc@UNSW and valued at $500) and the People's Choice Award (valued at $1,000) for his presentation at the 2017 UNSW Three Minute Thesis Inter-Faculty Final.

Twenty-two PhD candidates from across UNSW competed in this year's UNSW Three Minute Thesis Competition. Each competitor had just three minutes to give a compelling oration on their thesis topic that would engage an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

Antoni was one of two Arts & Social Sciences' students who took part in this year's competition, speaking on 'Disability Inclusive Budgeting: Enabling people with disabilities to have a say in Indonesia's development planning'. Muhammed Ourang also spoke on 'Saving Endangered Languages'.
