    Hi gang. I just wanted to answer that, yes, students here have to defend their thesis too.

      Awww! I just got a message from one of my supervisor at the dance school. It was a forward of a message from the mother of one of my kids. She wrote to say thank you and how great me and the other teacher were with the kids, and she joined a picture of the class where you see the two of us with the kids and just awww! So cute! It just warms my heart. The mother says that Lily (her daughter) still talks about her class, and that she will absolutely come back in September. It's so nice to know you make a difference and make a child happy.

        To compare it with SG; it's like you wrote a report and did research to if S/J are a couple and your conclusion was they are. You have to defend your reasons why you made that conclusion from the research.
        Perfectly normal here. In Oxford (and maybe elsewhere too, though I never assume what we call things is the same anywhere else...) it's called a viva - short for viva voce which is Latin for orally (live voice). You don't pass until you've passed your viva

          In America, you defend a thesis at the doctoral level only. I didn't have to do that for my bachelor's or my master's degrees...but when I reached doctorate, they change the rules Actually, it does have a lot to do with knowing your subject (and by the time you've done all that damn research and pulled everything together, you'd better know it).

            Oh dunno, the stuff I've seen on the www. Sounds pretty normal to me!

            Sod the bank balance I say. Then again, I have just renewed my car insurance for lots of lolly so £30 on a few plants that I don't need and haven't got room for is pretty small fry for what I have just spent.
            You're right about the exercise though and I did think of doing half an hour with Steve or Devon this evening but just could not drum up the enthusiasm to do so. Otherwise I probably would have felt better for it. I made bread instead and then went and potted up some tomato plants. And later I sat and painstakingly scanned another box of slides from my USA holiday all those years ago. How skinny was I? How curly was my spiral perm! How beautiful is Yosemite! Only another 194 slides to scan.

            How typical that the UK call it something different.

            Ah, see I was going to say that I am sure Pol was defending her thesis a few weeks back but that makes sense as it was doctoral level. I just thought it was an American thing as I'd not heard of it but (see above) now I know why.


            Damn multiquote has gone AWOL...Jumble, face it, if you're a sport lover, this year is going to be hell. Euro championships, then Ascot, then Wimbledon, then (I think) we might get a couple of weeks relief and we're into the olympics... Fortunately I'm not a big TV watcher so I can just turn it off and read a book or scan more pictures or go potter in the garden (or... pleasepleasepleaseifwegetsomeniceweather go for a splash in the pool).

            Speaking of Olympics, did I tell you guys my stepson is going to be a torch bearer? Yep, In Lincoln on the 27th June. I'd love to go see him and take Benjabubs to see his big brother but... school day and I already know they absolutely will not authorise a single day off for any reason whatsoever. They refused one child in his year a day off for his uncle's wedding. This is reception year, mind, first year of school and a whole year earlier than most of the rest of the world send their children to school so not like it'll wreck his entire future to miss one poxy day. Stupid bloody rules. I might just take him out anyway and poohbags to them if they don't like it!

            I am all for extending the Party by a day for Canada day.


            ...and... *pokes LJ* Just because I can.

                In Italy you have to defend a thesis in both cases but with a doctorate the discussion+questions is way longer. My presentation lasted almost an hour.

                  He hasn't included The Siege??? Aw

                  In that case, I'd have to go for The Storm and The Eye.

                  Edit: Nono! I've changed my mind - Lost Boys/The Hive is the best

                    But wasn't The Siege a season finale? That's probably why it's not there.

                    Great sig Jumble!

                            Beg to differ with you, but..........there are a few master programs that do require the candidate to speak publicly on their thesis topic in the US. Depends on the school and the major! But mostly, the presentation of a thesis is usually only for the doctorate candidates.

                                Thanks! Had to change it, after all these years...my love for Joe surpassed my love for Jack. Although...*ruffles Jack's hair*

                                I'm afraid I'm going to vote for one of the SGU eps. SO intense! Really, really loved SGU.
