Thanks everyone! It really hasn't sunk in yet, I still feel really wound up and stressed! The viva was really really hard, and I honestly came out of it fearing the worst. The external examiner was firm but fair, but the internal was a nightmare- really hard work and slightly rude/inappropriate in my opinion. But the changes are minimal, and hey, who cares now!
Yes, Catalinbond, 2 yrs 10 months from beginning to viva! But I've been very lucky with participant recruitment and my supervisor has been extremely efficient in turning drafts around, which has been a massive help!
Off abroad for a friend's wedding for a few days now, can't wait to have a change of scene and a chance to wind down!
Hey! I think two hours is fairly standard really- I know plenty of people who have had both longer and shorter vivas. Would love to say that time flew, but it didn't! My PhD was on Alzheimer's disease (from a clinical psychology perspective). Am just about beginning to unwind! Best, KB
