Theses and Dissertations

This guide aims to help you find theses and dissertations in the UK and around the world.


The library holds IOE theses and selected IOE masters dissertations. All are for reference use in the library only; some can be found on open access and others must be requested. Theses and dissertations can be found more easily on Explore by limiting to 'IOE', 'IOE Dissertations' or 'IOE Theses.'

  • IOE Dissertations published from 2000 are openly accessible on Level 5 and arranged alphabetically by the author's surname.
  • IOE pre-2000 dissertations must be requested in advance with a form at the Library Help Point or you can email with details of your request.
  • MA dissertations will be submitted digitally from September 2018, so there may be fewer paper copies given to the library.
