Scholarly Communication


The University repository Apollo has recently been upgraded and is now able to accept all thesis types. We have developed an online form for theses to make the deposit process simple and fast. This is available here.

For the academic year 2016/17 we are piloting electronic thesis submission with several departments. If you are submitting a thesis in the academic year 2016/17 through any of the departments listed below, you are requested to submit an electronic thesis to Apollo alongside the print copy you need to submit to the Student Registry.

You will retain the copyright and all rights to your thesis. Digital theses deposited by students will be made available under the same conditions as the hard copy versions are currently. Requestors are required to sign a declaration stating whether the research for which they wish to consult a thesis is private study or non-commercial.

Students are encouraged to make their thesis openly available. If this is your intention we provide some information about the need to check for third party copyright and obtain permissions if necessary.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Scholarly Communication.
