Mock Viva (Humanities and Social Sciences)
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

TACE: C - Completion
Format: Talk/Workshop
Suitable for: Late

These entertaining events aim to de-mystify the PhD viva by providing an example of a ‘good viva’ and a ‘bad viva’. A team of staff takes on the roles of Chair, Internal Examiner, External Examiner and PhD candidate. By the end of the session, you will:
* be familiar with the format of a typical PhD viva
* know what types of question might be asked and how to prepare yourself
* have an understanding of the processes involved before, during and after a PhD viva

Note: The processes involved in a viva are covered in both mock viva events. Therefore, anyone unable to attend the event relevant to their discipline is welcome to attend the alternative offering.

If you are unable to attend our live session, you can watch our May 2018 offering here.

Further information about thesis preparation and the viva can be found here.

The different outcomes of a PhD/MD viva can be found in the Academic Regulations handbook.

Presenters
Prof David James
