I’ve just come across the Doctoral School blog from University of Sussex which looks interesting.
There is a useful post on Surviving the viva This gives tips on how to prepare for and survive the process. I’ve just acquired an MP4 player and am a great fan of shuffled compilation music so it is useful to know this can assist with viva preparation.
There is also a useful post on Giving a conference presentation, how to prepare, write a paper and deliver the presentation on the day.
The Infoplus online tutorial for researcher is also helpful on topics such as citing and referencing, plagiarism, evaluating resources.
