Because even on Valentines Day it might be a bit much to hope that people love their viva!
You could like your viva because…
- …you’re almost done!
- …you get to talk with two academics about your work!
- …you know you’re good enough and it’s going to work out just fine!
- …you’ve prepared and know you’re ready!
Or you could have another reason. It’s reasonable to hope and expect a candidate would like their viva. Whatever happens, tell your story afterwards. If you liked it, say why. If you didn’t, say why.
Share your experiences to help others hopefully like their vivas in the future.
