Final Hard-bound Thesis

All students must submit a physical, final hard-bound thesis to the Student Desk. 

Student Desk,
Tierney Building,
University College Dublin,
Belfield, Dublin 4.

Make sure that you’ve completed the steps below:

✓   Printed and bound enough copies: You are only required to submit 1 hard-bound thesis to the Student Desk but may want to print additional copies to keep yourself.

✓   The Exam Committee has certified your revisions are complete and uploaded to the eThesis system (if applicable).

✓   Check your name and address: Go to the “My Profile” of SISWeb and check that your name is spelt correctly too e.g. with proper upper and lower case, no capital letters, and fadas and diacritic marks are in the appropriate place, as this is what appears on your parchments at graduation. Check that your permanent address is current, accurate & formatted correctly.
