Dissertations and theses can be invaluable sources of information for your studies.
Dissertations are extended essays or projects completed for undergraduate or M level postgraduate qualifications. A thesis is a work completed for an MPhil or doctorate (PhD, EdDoc, etc.)
Some theses go on to be published by academic publishers but many do not. For this reason, you may need to use specific resources to find and access them. These resources are included on this page.
EThOS is a service provided by the British Library. Use it to find and access full-text of thousands of UK doctoral theses.
