How will your thesis be made available to readers?
When you have completed your viva examination and made any revisions requested by the examiners, you will be asked to deposit two copies of your thesis with the university library. Your thesis will then be available for consultation within our Archive Centre.
GCU is a member of EThOS (Electronic Thesis Online Service), which is the UK's national thesis service run by the British Library. Your thesis can be digitised via this service and made available freely on the internet.
Your rights are outlined on the Deposit Agreement form. All theses can be requested under FOI (Freedom of Information) and EIR (Environmental Information Regulations) unless you specify a relevant exemption.
What is open access? How does it affect me?
Open Access is the immediate, online availability of scholarly literature, free of charge. It vastly increases the potential scholarly audience for your work.
Theses are digitised and added to EThOS on demand. Users of EThOS are allowed to reuse material from a thesis in the same way as they would from any other source. This means:
