Finding Theses

Print Theses

The Library holds copies of all Newcastle University PhD theses and copies of theses written for other research degrees such as DSc, MD, LLD, DEng, DBA, EdD, MPhil.

All theses held by the Library are listed in LibrarySearch. Links are provided to the full text where this is available.

Electronic Theses

Our repository of electronic theses contains the full text of over 3,800 Newcastle University doctoral theses.

International Theses

There isn't one single source for finding non-UK theses, and access options will vary according to the institution, but the links below give the best starting points.

Thesis production

The Student Progress Office provides information on Research Degree Examination Procedures and Forms, including the University's Guidelines for the Submission and Format of Theses and Library Submission Forms. You may also wish to speak to your supervisor for advice on thesis presentation.

For printing and binding enquiries see the Print Service's Thesis Service.

The University is strongly encouraging all PhD students to deposit an electronic version of their final examined thesis, as well as a printed copy. For more information, consult our Guidance for PhD Students.
