Visualise Your Thesis

Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) challenges PGRs at any stage of their candidature to present their projects in a 60-second, eye-catching, audio-visual digital display. Using a pre-supplied template, you are tasked with developing a striking e-poster presentation that succinctly describes your research, and its potential benefits, to a non-specialist audience. 

VYT was developed by the University of Melbourne in 2015 and Coventry University were the first UK University to host the competition. Read more about last year’s competition: Coventry University hosts first UK ‘Visualise Your Thesis’ Competition for Postgraduate Researchers.
