Theses at Queen Mary University of London

You and your thesis

As a doctoral student, writing up and submitting your thesis is the culmination of several years of work and study. Your thesis is a representation of what you have discovered, and is an important part of your profile as a researcher. 

In this section, you can find out about; things to consider as you write up and prepare to submit your thesis, what happens after the viva and your final submission, what Queen Mary does with your final thesis (and what you can do with it too), and what you need to tell us about your thesis so that we can help you share, or restrict, it.
