HDR students are not required to print their thesis for examination. On occasion an external examiner may request a hard copy of a thesis but the Office of Graduate Research will contact you if this is required.
A final hard bound copy of your thesis is not required for the library. All theses will be stored digitally. Students will be guided on how to upload their thesis to the library when their examination is complete. However, if you would like to print a copy of your thesis for personal use then you may wish to consider Flinders Press for soft bound copies or William Harley and Sons for hard bound printing.
Research higher degree students can claim up to $500 towards the cost of thesis editing and optional printing and binding of the final thesis copy. For reimbursement please complete an online request through Inspire.
Flinders Press accepts theses for printing and soft binding each week on Wednesdays before 10.30am. You will need to visit Flinders Press (Flinders Press Building, car park 9) with your student ID and print ready file.
Normally the thesis will be ready to collect within 24 – 48 hours depending on work loadings. If urgent service is required you should contact Unicard who offer self-service printing facilities and are based in the Library.
