Thesis Binding and Submission
To be eligible to attend the graduation ceremonies to be held this year, your degree must be awarded on, or before, the 28th April 2014. If you wish to be invited to the ceremonies, please make sure you have met all the requirements for award before this date.
Please note, UCL will be closed for the Easter break between Thursday 17th April and Tuesday 22nd April 2014 (inclusive).
Theses have to be robust enough to withstand the examination process and be easily identified. They will need to have your name on the spine to distinguish them.
All theses (whether soft or hard-bound) must be:
- covered in medium blue cloth (e.g. water resistant material);
- lettered in gold up the spine with Degree, Year, and Name and Initials in the same form as UCL records, with letters 16 or 18 point (.25 inch). (Thesis submitted for examination in November and December should have the following year lettered on the spine.)
- No lettering on front cover of thesis.
Please note picture illustrates required colour only,
Hard-bound theses must have the pages sown in (not punched) and soft-bound theses should have the pages glued in. Theses submitted in any other form of binding, including ring binding, will not be accepted.
You are responsible for ensuring that your thesis is
correctly bound by the company you select. A list of Binders and
Printers can be found at Binders and Printers.
In the first instance you should submit two soft-bound copies of your thesis to the Student Centre at the front of the Chadwick Building.
Please ensure that your Examination Entry Form has been received and logged by Research Degrees before you submit your thesis.
University College London award - one soft bound copy should be submitted to the Student Centre, together with the Abstract of Thesis form. Prior to the receipt of your bound copy, you also need to deposit an electronic copy of your final thesis (and a completed E-Thesis Deposit Agreement form) via UCL's Research Publications Service (RPS). Guidance on the preparation and deposit of electronic copies of your research thesis is available from UCL Library Services.
The forms required to accompany the final copies of your thesis can be found here.
UCL will not issue your result of the examination until the final copies of your thesis and the associated forms have been submitted.
