This is an archived list of the more popular posts about my viva experiences. They present my reflections at the time I was experiencing my viva (2015). If you’re currently on a PhD programme I hope you find something useful to take away from my experiences.
Other Viva Resource I found useful:
Viva Survivor Podcast Series with Dr Nathan Ryder – This is a massive archive of real-life doctoral students sharing their viva experiences.
Viva Cards – I wish I had these to prep for my viva. Instead, I use them in workshops and they are a fantastic resource. Also, post-viva, they’re great to use with final year undergrads and master’s students.
