About this Event
7 Reasons You’ll Pass Your Viva

(this is in place of the longer Viva Survivor workshops that was due to be delivered on the same date and recognises the demand for this course at this particular time of year for so many of you).

It’s normal to feel nervous, worried or uncertain before your viva. The viva is important and there’s plenty of space for doubts about yours and what might happen – but the reality is that there are many reasons to feel good about your viva and the outcome! In this 1-hour live session you will:

• learn why you can feel positive about your viva and the outcome;

• explore what the viva is really all about and what you can do for it;

• find answers to any questions troubling you now – once you have an answer you can focus on what you need to do.

You don’t need to prepare anything in advance of the session, but you might want paper to hand for making notes. The session will be delivered live by Dr Nathan Ryder over Zoom.
