Theses

Are you looking to view UWA theses to find some specific information or perhaps just to see what research our people have been conducting?


UWA Higher Degree theses can be accessed in either print or digital format depending on the year they were completed.

Access

Most theses completed after 2003 are available digitally through the UWA Profiles and Research Repository. Theses completed prior to 2003 are in print form; various access options are available through OneSearch. Check our Request and recommend page for more information.

Submitting your thesis

Any thesis which meets the definition of ‘thesis by research’ will be made accessible (where possible) in the UWA Profiles and Research Repository. This includes theses written for the Doctor of Philosophy and some Master’s by Research programs. The only condition is that the thesis must have already met all the conditions for award.

Students who commenced their candidature after March 2003 will be asked to lodge their thesis with the UWA Profiles and Research Repository, and will have been advised of this requirement by the Graduate Research School.

Non-UWA theses

Non-UWA theses can be located by searching the following online databases.

Trove

Theses submitted to or held in universities in Australia and New Zealand. Use 'Format' box to limit your search to theses only.

ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT)

Includes 2.7 million searchable citations to dissertations and theses from around the world.

Electronic Thesis Online Service (EThOS)

A British Library service which makes most British theses freely available as electronic downloads. Strict copyright conditions mean you must register to download a thesis. More information is available from the EThOS FAQs page. 

Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD)

The NDLTD Global ETD Search  contains more than one million records of electronic theses and dissertations. For students and researchers, this application (formerly known as the ‘Union Catalog’) makes individual collections of NDLTD member institutions and consortia appear as one seamless digital library.

Retrospective digitisation

The University Library has undertaken a project to digitise approximately 300 UWA theses completed before 2003 and to make them available through the UWA Profiles and Research Repository.

View the list of the theses that have been digitised and made available. 

Printed copies of all digitised theses are also publicly available for consultation in the Library’s Special Collections.

If your thesis was part of this project and you would like it removed from the UWA Profiles and Research Repository, contact digitalthesis-lib@uwa.edu.au.

Requests to remove a digital thesis from public view will be handled in accordance with the University's Take-Down Policy.
