About

Over many years you’ve consumed literature, developed careful arguments, conducted fieldwork, crunched numbers and words, written and rewritten your thesis and finally, now it is submitted, there’s one hurdle left to jump – the viva voce. Latin for ‘by live voice’ your viva is the opportunity to defend your work, to explain your thinking, and to have what can, with good preparation, be one of the most rewarding conversations of your life.

VivaCards help you prepare for this oral examination. Pitched towards those defending a PhD, they also work for an MPhil or any other situation that requires you to explain your research. They will focus your thinking in four areas: introduction and context; methods, design and analysis; results and discussion; and implications and utilisation. With an elegant and sleek design, Viva Cards are a simple and completely portable revision tool.
