First of all, congrats on submiting your thesis!!!!

Secondly, I'll tell you how I prepared for my viva..... I read my thesis 3 times and I knew it would be inside out. Then I made a list with all the viva questions that I could find. I also wrote answers to each question. The next step was to find all the answers in my thesis and fill my thesis with notes and post-its (and when I say I filled it I mean I FILLED it! There were so many little papers tham my examiners smiled when I took my copy out of my bag!). I also prepared a list of corrections, eventhough my supervisor advised me not to (for no particular reason).
It really helpd that I had a mock viva with my supervisor and another academic, eventhough it was just 2hours before the viva.
That was all! That was my preparation!
During the viva I had my thesis in front of me (with my post-its) and my notes with the answers yo the potential questions. The list of corrections was in my bag.
The viva lasted about an hour and I passed with (very) minor corrections....

Good luck!!!!!

I was working while studying for my phd. I had further difficulties, as I was working at a different country than where I studied, my native language is not English and my phd was in a UK university and my job had nothing to do eith my research .

I am not gojng to say that it is easy, but it is doable. It needs lots of organising and good time management.
I was working from 8 till 2, then I went to the gym for an hour, had lunch till 3:30 and started phd work at 4 till 8 or more if I still had stamina.....

I did it.

Method is the research tool you used and methodology all the theory behind your research

Hope this helps a bit

About a year after I started my phd my second supervisor retired from university and continued my supervision as an external. Six months before I dubmited my other/main supervisor also retired.
So, I finished my phd with 2 external supervisors.
I did not have any problem with either of ghem. They kept the deadlines they had set for feedback and they were both present at our meetings.
I guess it depends on the kind of person your supervisor is

I am not a native speaker and I did my PhD in English.
I found that my writing improved by reading! I read a lot and not only related to my research. I think it helps to get a grip of the language. Of course I still make mistakes and I cannot use the language as a native speaker, but I have improved a lot

I think it is normal or at least usual!
When I was preparing fro my viva and I read the introductory chapter I thought it had nothing to do with the rest of the viva! It felt like it was for a different research!
At the viva I was not asked any questions about the introduction and the only questions I got were about research ethics and some clarifications for the national context of the research. I got away with very minor corrections

I had some issues like yours with my thesis. Some were spotted by the examiners and some were not (yippi!!!!).
What I did with the ones they spotted was just to acknowledge them and say that I had missed that spot! At the end, I passed with minor (very minor) corrections and when I received my list of amendments, most of them were not even in (I did correct them, though, for my final submission)!
