Viva Survivor is a three hour workshop designed to help postgraduate researchers be well prepared for their viva. To date, it’s been delivered to over 2500 PhD candidates at universities around the UK. At the end of a session, participants will have

  • identified what examiners are looking for when they examine a thesis;
  • discussed the many ways that others can support preparation;
  • explored valuable viva preparation methods;
  • established realistic expectations for the viva;
    discussed common questions about the PhD viva.

Participants have opportunities to ask any and all questions, so that everyone can finish the session unburdened and ready for the viva. Participants are encouraged to approach their viva with confidence – this session will help with the final steps of the journey now that the hard work is done.
