Exit Strategies

In and amongst your viva prep, take a little time to think about how you will start your life after your viva.

  • If your viva is over video, how will you step back from that situation? Who will you talk to? How will you unwind from those hours of conversation? How might you celebrate?
  • If your viva is in-person, where will you go? Who will you need with you? And again, how might you celebrate?
  • Then once your corrections are done, what will you need to do to separate yourself from your life as a PhD candidate to life as a PhD?

Or, more simply, what will you do when your viva is done?
