Theses

Please refer to our e-thesis digital collection.

UCT theses can be found on the Open Scholarship page and through our Catalogue, PRIMO, if the author and/or title are known. Alternatively use a keyword search including the word "thesis".

In general UCT Libraries do not keep honours theses although some specific branch libraries may do so. In these cases the honours theses will be included in our catalogue. Departments often keep their copies of honours theses but these are not reflected in the Libraries' catalogue.

Sabinet offers a Theses and Dissertations databases that index theses and provide access to web-based full-text ETD in South Africa.
