The British Library offers a premium thesis supply service called EThOS, which you can access directly yourself.

Many theses are now available digitally for instant download. However, sometimes they are still only available as printed volumes; these can be sent to us for use in the library only.

If you want a copy of someone's thesis, you will need to know:

  • The title
  • The author
  • The year of publication
  • The university where they studied

You must not copy any theses - digital or print - without prior permission from the author.
