About the eTheses Repository


The University of Birmingham eTheses Repository is an online service developed to host the full-text of PhD and other research theses produced by research postgraduate students of the University. The material in the archive is available to be browsed, searched, read or printed by anyone interested in its content.

At present it hosts theses awarded from 2010 onwards, together with a growing collection of older theses from the University. We welcome submissions from students who have gained a PhD or other research degree from the University of Birmingham.

To search the full archive of printed theses from the University of Birmingham, use FindIt@Bham and refine your results by Type: Dissertations. You may also need to check the card catalogue to find theses written before 1972

This repository is partnered with EThOS, the UK e-theses service.
