EThOS offers a single point of access to all theses produced by participating UK Higher Education institutions.

Digitized final versions of doctoral theses from UK Higher Education Institutions. The database contains 250,000+ records from the 1900’s to present. The database is updated at least weekly with new records from participating from UK Higher Education Institutions, as well as with theses harvested from participants’ Repositories.

Many theses are freely available for immediate download, but in some cases there may be a charge for the digitisation of the original document.

Many thesis we hold in the library are digitised and are available for download so it's worth checking to allow access online.

You will need to set up an account with EThOS (it doesn't take long or require many details) and you can search for theses and download if it has been digitised.

There is help available online within the site including search tips.
