Obtaining a copy of a UWA thesis

How do I find and access UWA theses?

UWA Library holds print copies of most UWA Masters and Doctoral (PhD) theses. They are not for loan but may be consulted within the Reid Library. To find a particular print thesis use OneSearch. If you are not after a specific thesis but want to see theses from a particular School or Discipline simply search OneSearch using the name of the School/Discipline and the word thesis.

Check the full record display of the thesis as there may be an online version available. If the thesis is only available in print form then sign in to see your available request options. If you are unable to sign in to OneSearch (e.g. you are a member of the public) you will need to complete a Store Request Form.

History Honours theses and Law Honours theses are also held in print at the UWA Library. They can be located using OneSearch. All other Honours dissertations and Masters by coursework are not held by the University Library either in print or online, but may be held by the relevant UWA School. Please contact the appropriate UWA School for more information.

Libraries, Institutions and individuals outside UWA may purchase copies of UWA Theses for research purposes. 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 and then payment requirements will be confirmed.
