The Flatpack Viva

Thank you for taking the time to assemble your viva!

Be familiar with the instructions before you begin assembly: regulations, general expectations, thoughts on useful preparations, advice from friends, advice from the internet.

The viva requires a minimum of three to put together.

You will need your own tools.

Ensure all necessary components – research, thesis, candidate, examiners – are in good condition before you start.

As the volume of instructions about your viva can be great, perhaps consider summarising them on a single sheet of paper with a pen.

(paper and pen are not provided)

Note: the length of your finished viva will be different from pre-existing vivas due to natural variability of materials!

Your viva is simple to put together. Just follow the instructions.
