Submitting your Theses, Dissertations and Exegeses

AUT requires master's and doctoral students to submit an electronic copy of their thesis, dissertation or exegesis to be eligible for graduation. 

Master's and doctoral degrees

When the faculty postgraduate committee or University Postgraduate Board has approved that the degree be awarded, the candidate is required to deposit a digital copy online to the University Library. 

This can be submitted on AUT’s institutional repository, Tuwhera Open Theses & Dissertations.

The PGR15 'Deposit of Thesis/Exegesis in AUT Library' form will need to be completed and accompany the thesis/dissertation/exegesis. 

If you would like a copy of your thesis/dissertation bound, contact PinkLime for information on binding.

Bachelor's Degrees with Honours

For bachelor's degrees with honours, a digital copy is required since these dissertations are not routinely collected by the Library. Exceptional dissertations may be recommended for the Library by the appropriate faculty.

The PGR17 'Deposit of Bachelor's dissertation/exegesis in the AUT University Library' form will need need to be completed and approved by the faculty. 

To access the forms mentioned above, see postgraduate forms.

Further information on depositing theses, dissertations and exegeses can be found in the AUT University Postgraduate Handbook.
