Work Based Learning and Professional Practice: Research Projects

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Research Projects

Learning Resources holds a small number of examples of undergraduate and postgraduate research projects. However, these are print only, not electronic, so have to be looked at in the Sheppard Library. 

      Dissertations/Theses From Other Institutions

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

      From EThOS

      EThOS is a new 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.

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

      Through Inter-Library Loan

      If the thesis hasn't already been digitised through EThOS, you may order it as an inter-library loan, 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.

      Doctorate Research Projects

      Most DProf and MProf research projects are now digitised and can accessed via the Middlesex University Research Repository.
