Event details

Calling all PhD students (and potential PhD students)!

Are you looking towards your viva? Do you have questions about how the process works? Do you want to hear about other people's experiences of the process?

Come along to the Viva Lifeboat session where four recent humanities PhD graduates will be discussing how they prepared for the viva, what happened in the room, and what happens next.

Whether you are weeks away from sitting your own viva, or considering whether a PhD is for you, this is your chance to come and get a candid candidate's-eye-view of how the end of a PhD works, and ask questions from graduates with a range of experiences.
