Submitting your thesis

Under Senate Regulation 5 all students enrolled on research degrees (eg MPhil, PhD) must provide the Library with an electronic version of their successful thesis for archival in BURA, the University's open access research repository. The only exceptions to this requirement are submissions for PhD by the Published Works route and submissions for higher doctorates.

There are two steps required when submitting your thesis:

  • Pre-submission: Submit a draft of your thesis to the University’s CheckIt service. Please use this form (login required off campus). Once your supervisor has signed off the subsequent report, you will need to speak to your college Postgraduate Research Office about formal submission for examination.

  • Post-award: Students are required to complete and sign the Thesis Deposit Licence Form. This should be returned to the library with your award letter and a CD containing a full text version of the thesis.
