Loan and purchase of theses

Electronic copies of open-access Manchester doctoral theses (from 2010 onwards) are available free to view and download via Manchester eScholar.

Older doctoral theses are available to researchers on demand from the British Library's EThOS service.

We do not lend or copy doctoral/research theses - please request them via EThOS or check eScholar.

Any requests for loans of non-doctoral theses from The University of Manchester made by individuals within the UK via a UK library can be lent out to the library in question for reference purposes only.

Theses which are loaned out to other libraries can only be consulted by the person who made the request to see it.

Loans of theses from the University of Manchester to UK customers are dealt with by the Document Supply Unit.

The University of Manchester does not sell copies of its theses to other libraries for addition to their collections.

All enquiries about buying our non-doctoral theses and dissertations should be sent via Library Help. Alternatively, contact the  Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm.

Theses are subject to the same copyright laws as other published material.
