Massey researcher development events


Below you will find upcoming and past Massey researcher development events:

Massey Thesis Writing Boot Camp

Dedicated solely to getting words down on paper (or a computer screen), this programme is designed to help candidates get over that final hurdle or to kick-start their writing progress if it has stalled. Sign up to join other graduate research comrades at the same candidature stage in a no-excuses, no-time-for-procrastination, take-no-prisoners intensive writing event.

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a fast paced and exciting speech competition that challenges post graduate candidates to summarise the significance of their thesis work/research project in three minutes for a panel of judges and a diverse audience. 



The traditional view of the PhD as a pathway to long-term academic employment has become out-dated as less than 40% of PhD graduates actually gain an academic job. For PhD candidates that have not had industry exposure, programs are needed to develop the skills and experience required to apply their research knowledge in a business setting. These programs also need to be attractive to industry to build long-lasting relationships that support innovation and knowledge exchange. iPREP (Industry and PhD Research Engagement Program) is an innovative initiative that helps PhD candidates engage and network with industry.

Dean's List Inaugural Lectures

Twice a year Massey University hosts the Dean’s List Inaugural Lectures, an exciting and innovative event.  The event is designed to celebrate Massey University’s recently completed doctoral candidates who have been acknowledged by all of their examiners as producing an exceptional thesis (Dean’s List Recipient). The lectures celebrate and showcase doctoral graduates who are academically outstanding and who can present their work in an engaging and accessible way to the wider University and the public

Research Bazaar

Massey University, Manawatu campus hosted the inaugural ResBaz event in Feb 2017.

Staff and Students came together to learn new digital research skills, showcase current projects and collaborate on planning new research opportunities. The sessions were interactive, hands on and led by current researchers and support staff from Massey University.
