PG Cert Learning and Supporting Teaching in Higher Education: Theses and Dissertations

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Theses and Dissertations

A small number of undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations in both print and electronic format are available (as examples only).

To find dissertations written by previous students on the library catalogue:

  • Go to the Library Catalogue
  • Within the Keyword Search, select General Keyword from the drop down menu.
  • Type the word dissertation in to the search box, followed by course title or subject eg. dissertation MScCN or dissertation mobile communication.
  • Check the individual results. All hard copy dissertations are for reference-use only within  Library and are issued for three hours.
  • Complete a request form available at the Transactions Desk, and staff will find the item for you (they are not kept on the open shelves).
Most Postgraduate dissertations are now digitised and can be accessed via the Middlesex University Research Repository, which is an searchable database of research produced by staff and researchers at Middlesex University, open and freely accessible to the research community and public.


Dissertations/Theses From Other Institutions

There are several ways for you to obtain a thesis from another univeristy for your research.


EThOS is a  scheme run by the British Library - search their catalogue first to see if the thesis you need has already been digitised.

You will need to register in order to download theses as PDFs - you can also opt to pay to have a copy printed for you.

Index to Theses

Try also the Index to Theses: a comprehensive listing of theses with abstracts accepted by universities in Great Britain and Ireland since 1716.

Inter-Library Loan

If the thesis hasn't already been digitised through EThOS, you may order it as an inter-library loan. If you are a distance learner then contact the Distant Learning Support Unit for more information. Each inter-library loan request will cost £3.

From the other institution

If you can visit the other library, this is often the quickest way of accessing theses.  You may need a SCONUL card - for more information, see Using Other Libraries.

Check their library catalogue to see if they hold a copy of the thesis you need.  Theses are not usually on the open shelves, so check to see how long it will take - you may have to order it several days in advance.
