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
For a more comprehensive search of theses from other institutions go to Library theses databases page.
