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

Format of Workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: All

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.

Presenters
Professor Martin A Kayman
