Until recently theses and dissertations (Masters and Doctoral) were only available in printed form. Now, worldwide, institutions are digitising their collections putting pdf copies into the public arena. Theses can be traced via Google, GoogleScholar or from a particular institution's theses repository, usually from the Library's webpage.
For UKZN theses go to ResearchSpace
For South African theses go to SABINET ONLINE - see the UCTD collection and Current and Completed Research. UCTD indexes all masters and PhD theses undertaken throught South African institutions since 1918.
For a more comprehensive search of theses from other institutions go to Library theses databases page.
This is the online institutional repository of the University of KwaZulu-Natal.The material on this site can only be used for study and research and therefore can be copied/downloaded etc., for personal use ONLY. Any form of copying for distribution purposes requires copyright permission from the author/university.
This is an ongoing project so only more recenet theses are availabl in digital format.
