I am very happy to receive reading your proposed viva questions which I realized they are useful for any viva candidates who are preparing to present it, like me, my viva is just in a comer which I wish to have such important suggested general questions of a viva. However, I would like you if possible to suggest for me some viva questions on my field which you think they may be raised by the committee and which you may think possibly may be. Therefore, I need your advice. My PhD thesis on a African Foreign Policy in terms of regional policies and national development. if there is any recommendations or
thank you so much
Very useful tips indeed. In my case, somehow i have mismanaged my PhD, partly because of problems with previous supervisor, and partly because of my indecisiveness to choose a topic(peppered with a bit of procrastination). The problem is I’m left with very little time to finish my Phd now or else to let it go and take a fresh admission latter on (which sounds scary to me after investing so much time). I have been interested in an area or two in which I plan to work in the future (I am a philosophy teacher), but those areas are require too much effort now given the short time i have. My new supervisor suggests to choose an area and topic in his area of interest which could be easy to tackle in the present time constraints. I am exasperated: If i do my PhD in one area and later on decide to work in some other areas only, does that make any sense to you?I mean the whole idea of doing PhD in an area you’re not interested in seems horrifying, especially when one has no intention to work in that area latter on 🙁 An advise would be really appreciated. Sorry for a very long comment.
In a 1993 interview with The Washington Post, about the time the Clinton health care plan was being formulated and the thesis was being sealed, the first lady characterized her college writing as an argument against big government, supporting Alinsky's criticism of the War on Poverty programs. “I basically argued that he was right,” she told the newspaper. “Even at that early stage I was against all these people who come up with these big government programs that were more supportive of bureaucracies than actually helpful to people. You know, I've been on this kick for 25 years.”
