Thesis Submission Checklist

Your thesis will consist of:
 
1 a) electronic thesis upload to the eThesis system for examination
1 b) revised version of the thesis uploaded post examination (if applicable)
AND
2. Final hard-bound thesis submitted to the UCD Student Desk for the UCD Library

You can submit your thesis for examination on the eThesis Exam System via SISWeb.

Once this has been reviewed by your examination committee and you have been requested to make revisions (if applicable), you will upload the revised version of the thesis to the eThesis Exam System. The Exam Committee nominee will certify that your revisions are complete and uploaded to the eThesis system. You will then submit your hard-bound thesis to the UCD Student Desk. 

See Student eThesis Website & Student Desk FAQ page for further guides, FAQs and information.

  • Thesis for Examination

The thesis can be submitted electronically via the eThesis system in SISWeb. Before submitting your thesis, make sure that you’ve completed the steps below. (See eThesis student checklist for further details):

✓ Discuss with your supervisor if an embargo is required for your thesis. See UCD Thesis embargoes for further details. Please also see Research Repository Database (RRU) FAQ for further information.

✓   Pay all of the necessary fees: Any questions ask us, we will be happy to help.

✓   Check your address: Go to the “My Profile” of SISWeb and check that your permanent address is current, accurate and formatted correctly.

✓ Programme Compliance - Ensure you have completed all necessary modules and programme. See Guidance on Compliance Checking in Preparation for Thesis Submission for further details. For additional support on compliance, contact your School Administrator or the Graduate Research Board grb@ucd.ie

✓ If you have any additional queries in relation to the eThesis Exam System then please contact ethesis@ucd.ie.

  •  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 and formatted correctly.
