Who could you send this to? (after completing it of course)
My viva is coming up soon and I need your help please!
I feel _______________ about my viva because _______________________________________ . I was wondering if you could help me by ______________________________ ?
I know that you’re busy, but I also know that you’ll be a great help because _______________________________________________ . If you’ve got a lot on and can’t help, I’ll understand. If you can help, then let me know what will work for you.
If you’re free soon maybe we could chat about it over coffee at ____________________________ !
Thanks for reading, speak soon,
Maybe your supervisor? Maybe a colleague? Your office-mate? Best friend? Think carefully about why someone could be a big help to you, and tell them.
Or maybe it’s useful just to write down and get out of your head that second short paragraph: how you feel about your viva, why you feel that way, and what steps could help.
