Happy Christmas!

I’m taking the next few days off from posting. If you’re preparing for your viva because it’s in January, I hope you still find time to switch off from your preparations. They can wait, and however you mark this time of year, spend time with people you love rather than your thesis.

The Viva Survivors blog will return on the 27th for five days of links to my best posts of this year. If you’re looking for help with viva prep, want to explore questions or tips, or are just looking for some reflections on the viva and confidence then check out those posts.

Very best wishes to you and yours, and thank you for reading!
