Finding dissertations and theses
How to find University of Bath dissertations and theses in the library and online or search other libraries for theses and dissertations.
Undergraduate dissertations and project reports
Undergraduate dissertations and project reports are not provided by the Library in either online or printed format.
A sample of dissertations submitted for taught Masters degree courses are kept for five years and made available online to members of the University of Bath only. Not all departments require students to submit their dissertation to the Library so you may like to check with your department if copies are available elsewhere.
