Thesis Service

Library Search
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and changes to our services - All library buildings are now closed. The Library service remains open online.

We produce theses and dissertations for students studying at universities all over the UK. Whether in preparation for your viva or for your final hand-in, our thesis service can help you to get your work ready for submission.

You may choose to have your work printed and bound by us or, if you prefer you may bring your printing to us for binding only.

Thesis Printing

Theses should be submitted to us as a digital file (preferably as a PDF) and we aim to print one copy within 24 hours of receiving your document. Once you have checked the first copy at our reception, we will print any remaining copies, passing them directly to the bindery as soon as they are ready.


The price for printing your thesis will be determined by the quantity of colour and black and white pages as well as the number of copies you require. If you let us know an indication of quantities we will send you a quotation.

Thesis Binding

Hard binding

We can hard bind theses and dissertations all bound to each individual university's or establishment's specifications. External students please advise us of your specifications.

Soft binding

Theses and dissertations can be bound while-you-wait in a choice of soft binding styles e.g. Velobind, Spiral and Fastback (ask at Print Services reception for advice).

See Newcastle University specifications on the Student Progress website
