About | Preparing for the viva examination

This session is for research students in the final stages of their degree.

The focus is on preparing for an oral examination (viva voce) in which a written submission must be defended orally.

Coping strategies for the viva are explored along with thorough details on the various outcomes possible following the viva examination and what this means for students.

The material in these sessions is pitched to 3rd year PhD level and assumes that substantial research has been completed, and at least a partial draft of the thesis is underway.
