Obtaining a copy of a UWA thesis

How do I get access to a UWA thesis?

All UWA Theses are listed in OneSearch, some of which are available in full text online. To find UWA Theses, use OneSearch to locate them by keyword, title, Faculty, subject or call number. Print versions of UWA Masters and Ph.D Theses can be read and photocopied in the Reid Library or in Special Collections depending on the age and/or vulnerability of the Thesis. Firstly, you will need to complete a Store Request Form for the thesis that you wish to access. When the thesis has been retrieved, you will receive an email outlining options for viewing, copying and scanning.

UWA staff and postgraduate students can request a copy of a non-UWA thesis through Get It, if the full-text is not available through the resources listed.

Libraries, Institutions and individuals outside UWA may purchase copies of UWA Theses for research purposes. The Document Delivery staff will copy entire Theses on request for a fee:

  • $137.50 (GST inclusive) within Australia
  • $130 for overseas

Theses are supplied as PDFs via a secure download link.

All purchase requests require a Thesis Request Form to be submitted. Payment, except by UWA electronic T-form, must be made in advance.

Any photocopying of specific pages or sections must be done in person in the Reid library.
