Queen Mary Thesis

About QMUL theses

QMUL Libraries hold theses awarded by Queen Mary University of London and the University of London in the fulfilment of higher degrees studied at:


  • Queen Mary University of London
  • Queen Mary and Westfield College
  • Queen Mary College
  • Westfield College
  • Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry
  • London Hospital Medical College
  • St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical College


All higher degree theses awarded since 2013, and older theses requested for digitisation by EThOS, and not subject to an embargo, are available in electronic format in Queen Mary Research Online, the institutional repository. For more information on submitting an ethesis and terms of use, go to eTheses in QMRO.


Theses awarded in the faculties of Science & Engineering and Humanities & Social Sciences are held in hard copy at the Mile End Library. Theses awarded in the faculty of Medicine & Dentistry are held in hard copy at either West Smithfield or Whitechapel Library. If an electronic version of the thesis is not available in the repository, and is not subject to an embargo, it can be viewed in person at the Library by completing a Store/Gallery Request form for the item. To search for a hard copy thesis visit the Library Catalogue

Theses subject to an embargo, a fixed period when they are not available publicly, are not accessible in electronic or hard copy format. Embargoes are usually applied to protect the rights of the author whilst they explore opportunities for publication, or where sensitive information is held within the thesis, requiring editing or extracting to produce a publicly distributable version. If a Queen Mary thesis is not available in either Queen Mary Research Online, or via the Catalogue, please complete a Library enquiry form and a member of staff will be happy to help.
