Video streaming for a final research degree oral examination (research students)

Updated September 2022: To allow flexibility to explore the most appropriate format, as needed for academic or other reasons, there are three possible models for a research degree transfer or final viva:

  • Fully in person (all parties together on campus for a face-to-face viva)
  • Fully remote (all parties complete the viva via Microsoft Teams or Zoom)
  • Hybrid (some parties are in person whilst others are online).
