Welcome to the UF Graduate School
Welcome to the website of the Graduate School at the University of Florida.
The reputation of a research university is, in large part, measured by the excellence of its graduate faculty and graduate students. The University of Florida’s graduate faculty and graduate students help to push the boundaries of research, develop the technologies of the future, improve the health of our citizenry, reshape our social and economic culture, expand scholarship, and create beauty in many forms.
This website is here to provide information and resources to those interested in graduate education programs at the University of Florida, but more critically, it serves to help both aspiring and admitted graduate students from their initial application through graduation. It also furnishes administrators, faculty, and staff with tools to help our graduate student body achieve those goals. Importantly, it stands as a point of contact where graduate alumni can keep up with the ongoing life of their alma mater and lend their support to new generations of graduate students following in their footsteps.
Thank you for visiting the UF Graduate School website. We invite you to join in the exploration that is graduate education and research at the University of Florida.

April 3: First Annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition
The UF Graduate School in collaboration with I-Cubed and GSAC will host its first annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition on April 3, 2014 in the Reitz Union Auditorium at 2 p.m. 3MT® brings graduate students from programs across campus together for an afternoon of rapid-fire presentation of their dissertation research. Pioneered by the University of Queensland in 2008, this competition challenges students to explain their research and its significance to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes. 3MT develops academic, presentation and research communication skills. Participants have the opportunity to win cash awards selected by a panel of judges ($500 for the winner and $250 for the runner-up), as well as a People’s Choice Award ($250). The three judging criteria each carry equal weight; with a focus on the audience as common factor:
• Communication style: was the thesis topic and its significance communicated in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience?
• Comprehension: did the presentation help the audience understand the research?
• Engagement: did the oration make the audience want to know more?
