Copies of dissertations and theses written by ex-students are held by the Library. The Library generally only accepts dissertations that have been awarded a 1st or 2:1 degree. Dissertations are now held digitally and can be found by using the Library Search and selecting 'Dissertations' from the drop-down Resources list.
Not all Unversity of Exeter courses on the Penryn Campus have chosen to deposit their dissertations with the Library. In these instances, please check with your dissertation supervisor as a sample dissertation may be available in the department or on ELE.
PhD theses are arranged in alphabetical order by surname of author. The thesis section includes theses from Camborne School of Mines and Dartington College of Arts.
From the 2008/2009 session onwards, University of Exeter research students have been required to deposit the full-text electronic version of their theses in the Exeter institutional repository (ORE)
.The repository may also contain earlier theses, as some students have chosen to deposit them there. You can search for University of Exeter theses in ORE or on the University of Exeter Library Search.
