The library doesn't automatically receive student dissertations/theses from all faculties. Printed copies of BCU theses that are held in our libraries will be listed on the library catalogue. Theses held in Curzon Library will been shown on the catalogue as "being catalogued". Please ask at the Library Help Desk for these.

Many student projects are also held on the Digital Library, You will need to use your library borrower number (i.e. your student card number plus the card issue number) and your 4 digit library PIN to log on. Look under ‘Student Projects’ in the ‘Core Collections’ list. 

Some BCU theses are also on BCU Open Access. 

The British Library's EThOS service provides access to UK’s doctoral research theses. Many of the theses on EThOS are available to download immediately but you will need to register to do this. Registration is free.

The ABI/Inform database provides access to dissertations from US universities.
