SPS is hosting a viva survival workshop on Wednesday 9 March at 2pm in the Practice Suite, 1st floor CMB.

This workshop is for anyone who sees their PhD viva looming, or wants to see what a viva looks like, even if well off completion.

The workshop will start with a discussion between two members of SPS staff on their experience of vivas as examiners. Then attendees will role play answers to viva questions - so come prepared to be in the hot seat.

In order to make the sessions as productive as possible, please submit your title and a short abstract of your thesis to L.Hunter@ed.ac.uk when you sign up – please make the subject of that email ‘Viva Survival Workshop’. You don't have to have finished or even started writing your thesis - but you will need to have an idea of what it is going to say.

Advance registration is required, please sign up here.
