Although Schools try to give students a feel for what their viva will be like, it can still be one of the most stressful parts of the whole PhD process. Preparing properly for this examination is important in allowing a student to demonstrate their communication and research skills and do justice to the work that they have carried out during the years of research.
The University Graduate School has created a Canvas course to help you prepare for your viva. It includes a video of a viva examination, information on the regulations surrounding the viva, and advice on how to prepare on the day.
Your school or college may also have discipline-specific support, including mock vivas or viva preparation workshops. For more information speak to your school.
Listen to PGRs talking about their own viva experiences, including tips on surviving your viva. More will be added throughout the year.
