Viva Survivor

Description

The viva is the culmination of the PhD process: a lot of work has led to this point, but a feeling of anxiety can accompany the sense of achievement at completing one's thesis. For many PhD candidates the time leading up to the viva is filled with stress about the day, and uncertainty about how to prepare and what the viva will be like.

Viva Survivor is a session for postgraduate researchers close to submission who want to gain insight on how to be well prepared for their viva. In this session participants will:

  • identify sources of support for their viva preparation;
  • explore practical strategies to prepare themselves and their thesis;
  • discuss common viva questions.

List of Learning Outcomes. By the end of this workshop, students should be able to:

1. Identify sources of support for viva preparation

2. Explore practical strategies to prepare yourself and your thesis

3. Identify common viva questions

This workshop is suitable for 2nd and 3rd year PhD students
