Thesis binding and Submission
Important Notice - Olympic Period
You are strongly advised to avoid travelling to and from UCL’s main campus during this period. Registry and Academic Services [RAS] has put in place arrangements to ensure business continuity for all core RAS services during the main Olympic period between 27 July and 12 August 2012. As such, the Student Centre and other student-facing activities are expected to operate normal opening hours between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
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
University of London award - one soft-bound copy.
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

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
