I’m very proud to announce and boast a huge well done to my partner, Andrew, who successfully passed his PhD viva on Thursday. Pending minor corrections to his thesis (the norm), he will be awarded his PhD.
A viva, or viva voce a Latin phrase literally meaning ‘with living voice’, but most often translated as ‘by word of mouth’, is the final hurdle of a PhD and is a discussion about the work and basically a thesis defence.
After four years of hard work, his dedication was finally rewarded! Well done you! A great achievement – just before Christmas too!
