Viva Survivors

Last week I spoke to Dr Nathan Ryder, creator of the rather wonderful Viva Survivors blog. He interviews people with PhDs about their viva experiences and posts podcasts on the blog. Including mine! I wish his blog had been available in 2006, because I would have been hanging on its every word.516WAmwa+FL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU02_

Nathan has also written a well-reviewed book called Fail Your Viva: Twelve Steps To Failing Your PhD (And Fifty-Eight Tips For Passing). Again, if I was pre- rather than post-viva, I’d be all over this.

So if you have a viva looming, I recommend checking out Nathan’s work.

I’ve also heard good things on Twitter about Viva Cards, so check them out too.
