Dissertations and Theses

Local Dissertations and Theses

The University Library is proud to make accessible its bachelor, master and doctorate dissertations and theses held (written by staff and students). External users will only have access to the abstracts and bibliographic record.

Hard copy dissertations and theses are available in the library for ‘Reference’ use. Unless there is more than one copy, then borrowing of second and subsequent copies is permitted. Staff items, where we hold them, are catalogued and shelved according to the relevant awarding body. Dissertations from the Kurdistan region are all shelved together at 378.5672 in order of their departmental subject and then the author’s last name.
