Mock PhD Viva (Humanities and Social Sciences)

Starts: 28 May 2013

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. The processes involved before, during and after the viva are explained. For those unable to attend, the events are recorded to provide DVDs for loan from the University Graduate College (UGC) Office. 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
