The date for my Viva has now been set. From what I can tell the viva is somewhat unique to the UK. Whereas most Phd students seem defend their work to a committee comprised of their supervisors, in the viva you are examined by an internal and external examiner who have not been involved in your work. As befits a country steeped in tradition and disorganisation, the viva process is also somewhat mysterious. There seem to be a few recent books describing what you might expect, but if anyone happens to have gone through the process, and has any advice, I would appreciate it.
