About dissertations and theses

Until recently theses and dissertations (Masters and Doctoral) were only available in printed form. Now worldwide institutions are digitising their collections and putting pdf copies into the public arena. Theses can be traced via Google, GoogleScholar or from a particular institution's theses repository, which is usually available 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.
