Mock viva

Hi, I know mock vivas can be arranged within the department but these can sometimes be difficult to arrange, especially with the increasing workload that many academics are under. I was wondering, is there someone/team within the graduate school/RSSP who can give you a mock viva, or help in any way with viva preperation?  Thanks!

NVivo

Hi! I'm a PhD student in the department of sociology. I'm doing discourse analysis at present and I'd like to learn NVivo for qualitative analysis.  Is anyone using it now?  I'm not sure if it is suitable for analysing users' comments online.

Developing a writing plan

At the last meeting with my supervisor, he asked that I develop a writing plan (setting out deadlines for completing each chapter). Does anyone have a good model plan that they don't mind sharing or a link to any valuable resources for developing a writing plan?
