Groups include South-East Asia and later North-East Asia as the Asia-Pacific 3MT® competition, the U21 network, and the Vitae UK.
The University of the West Indies Mona Campus Edition begins with the Faculties selecting two representatives for Round One of the competition. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Faculties may use Zoom or any other suitable online platform to stage the competition. The Faculties that elect to host the competition in a face-to-face manner may do so while observing the COVID-19 protocols as stipulated by The University of the West Indies and the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW). Each participant will give a 3-minute pitch of his/her thesis.
The winners from Round One will then progress to Round Two which is The UWI Mona 3MT Competition Finals. This will be hosted virtually via the Zoom platform.
