Viva Confidence and Communication

This site is full of thought-provoking reflections – and practical tips on what to do to be ready for the day. It is written by someone who has been through it and remembers vividly what it was like.

Peruse this for tricks of the trade and ideas on being as prepared as you can.

In particular, the podcast archive is brilliant – as Dr Ryder talks to examiners from different research areas about their experiences of successful vivas.
