Universitas 21 is the leading global network of research-intensive universities, working together to foster global citizenship and institutional innovation through research-inspired teaching and learning, student mobility, connecting our students and staff, and wider advocacy for internationalisation.

All of the Universitas 21 25-member institutions are research-led, comprehensive universities providing a strong quality assurance framework to the network's activities.

Following a successful launch in 2013, the U21 3MT competition pits the leading presenters from each U21 member university against one another. Each participating member will hold their own internal 3MT competition to select a local winner who will then be put forward (via video submission) for the U21 final, to be judged by an international panel consisting of industry and academic professionals.

Dates for the 2021 U21 3MT competition are:

  • Video submission deadline: Thursday 16 September
  • Videos online and open the People’s Choice vote: Monday 20 September
  • People’s Choice closes: Monday 4 October
  • Winners announced: Week of 11 October
