Durham e-Theses

Attention all users – e-Theses downtime, Tuesday 19 December 12noon–5pm

On Tuesday 19 December at 12noon, we will begin migrating (moving) e-Theses into the University’s new data centres. This means there will be no access to e-Theses services during the times stated above. We anticipate service will be restored by 5pm on the same day.

Although this work is being carried out outside of term-time to keep disruption to a minimum, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any queries regarding submissions please contact

Durham e-Theses contains the full-text of Durham University Higher Degree theses passed after 1 October 2009. Durham University Library is in the process of digitising its extensive collection of PhD, MPhil and Research Masters dissertations from 1899 onwards. The full text of these dissertations is made freely available for anyone to read via the Durham University's e-theses service.

If you do not wish to have your research made available in this way, please follow the general procedures outlined in the Take-down policy and contact us with the reasons for this as soon as possible.

The content is freely available for personal research or study, educational, or not-for-profit purposes.
