International theses

There are also resources that will help you to locate overseas dissertations, however it is often more difficult to obtain the full text of non-UK theses as they are not always available through the British Library.

  • Proquest Dissertations and Theses: Global is the world's most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses from around the world, spanning from 1861 to the present day and offering full text for most of the dissertations added since 1997. Unlike many of our other resources it also contains some master's theses.
  • Dissertation Express allows you to buy copies of theses from the US and Canada.
  • Google Scholar can be a useful tool to identify potential resources.
  • Proquest Dissertations and Theses: Open provides the full text of open access dissertations and theses free of charge. This is where the (mainly American) authors have opted to publish as open access and make their research available for free on the open Web. It is a fairly new service and should not be used as an exhaustive search.
  • Open Access Thesis and Dissertations (OATD) An index of over 2.7 million records of post-graduate thesis and dissertations from 43 countries.  OATD.org only searches thesis that are available via Open Access.
  • If you are unable to locate a specific thesis please contact the Research Support team on Tel: 01273 877941 (int 7941) or Email: [email protected] with the full details of your request.

Admission to Candidacy, Qualifying Examination, and Dissertation Defense

Qualifying examination.

The qualifying examination (QE) consists of a written research proposal and an oral defense of the proposal before the student’s Ph.D. committee. The written portion consists of two parts: a detailed literature survey of the research area and a proposal outlining the research questions, preliminary results, proposed schedule and success metrics. The oral presentation covers both of these components, as well.

The QE is often taken in a student’s third year but no later than the fourth year of the program. Once a student has been admitted to candidacy, the dissertation must be completed within four years or a petition for an extension must be submitted. A student cannot take the QE and defend within the same academic semester.

In order to schedule the QE, the student will first appoint a committee. Committee requirements are as follows:

  • Three from within the student's department/program
  • One from outside the student's program
  • All must be Graduate Faculty

Please note that although the minimum is four members, it is recommended to have a minimum of five members to ensure there are enough signatures in the case that a member is unable to attend or chooses not to sign. Also, if a non-Graduate Faculty member or an external member is chosen as part of the committee, a justification letter from the academic advisor as well as the member’s curriculum vitae will need to be included in the request. An example justification letter is available.

Once the student is ready to appoint the committee and schedule the exam, the student should contact the program coordinator for additional instructions. The forms needed to schedule the QE and appoint the committee will be due three weeks prior to the assessment, so please ensure that this is initiated in advance to allow time to plan, schedule, and submit these forms by the deadline.

Please review additional information regarding the qualifying examination in the Graduate School Catalog:   https://www.vanderbilt.edu/catalogs/graduate/graduate-school/index.php

Dissertation Defense

The dissertation defense consists of an oral defense of the dissertation before the student’s Ph.D. committee. Students will complete the dissertation defense during the final months of the student’s program but no later than the deadline for the expected degree conferral date.

The Ph.D. committee assigned for the student’s qualifying exam will remain as the committee for the dissertation defense unless a request for an adjustment is submitted.

Once the student is ready to schedule the exam, the student should contact the program coordinator for additional instructions. The form needed to schedule the defense will be due three weeks prior to the assessment, so please ensure that this is initiated in advance to allow time to plan, schedule, and submit the form by the deadline.

Meet 3MT Finalist Spencer Zeigler

The 2024 Three Minute Thesis final competition will be held Feb. 7, from 4 to 6 p.m.

What is the best way to distill a multitude of information into just three minutes?

That’s the question ten graduate students will be wrestling with as part of the Graduate School’s seventh annual  Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition , which will be held in the University Memorial Center’s Glenn Miller Ballroom on Feb. 7, 2024, from 4 to 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but  registration is required .

This event challenges students to explain their thesis to the general public. They are then evaluated by a panel of judges from across the university, including College of Arts and Sciences Dean Glen Krutz, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences Associate Dean Charles Musgraves, Professor of Sociology Lori Hunter, and Physics Professor and Nobel Laureate Eric Cornell.

In the days leading up to the event, we’ll be featuring each of the competitors. Today’s is  Spencer Zeigler , a geological sciences doctoral candidate who focuses on geochronology (the science of age dating earth materials, like rocks, minerals, fossils, and geologic events) and thermochronology (the study of the thermal evolution of a region of a planet). Her 3MT presentation’s title is, “The Missing Pages of Earth History.”

Spencer Zeigler

Spencer Zeigler

If you had to describe your research in one sentence, what would you say?

I use radioactive decay to try and figure out when, how, and why the northern Canadian landscape has changed over the past 600 million years.

What is your favorite thing about the research you do?

My favorite thing about my research is a process called "mineral separation." I start with an armful of rock and turn that into just a pinch of sand-sized material which should be entirely composed of 1 mineral—apatite. It is physical work that includes sledgehammers, magnets, and liquids that are 4x denser than water! The best part is that you get to see your progress at the end of the day.

What led you to pursue your doctoral degree in your field of study?

My advisor ( Becky Flowers ), who I was doing research for during my 'gap year', knew that I've got a huge weakness for volcanoes—the weirder the better. So, she offered me a position working on the strangest volcanoes in the whole world—kimberlites. I loved working in her lab and with her, so I decided to stay. In addition to studying awesome volcanoes, I'm essentially getting a PhD in time travel; I get to look back hundreds of millions of years into the past and tell a story about why a place looks the way it does today.

What are your hobbies/what do you enjoy doing outside of your academic work?

I am a public transit/safer streets/bike/pedestrian advocate. I work closely with Safer Streets, Better Broomfield, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to make our streets better and safer for everyone. In that same vein, I enjoy commuting to campus by bike—but I really love doing Costco runs on my bike. :) I also enjoy knitting scarves, listening to podcasts, doing jigsaw puzzles, playing cornhole (where's the CU Boulder league?!) and gluten free baking.

What is your favorite food and why?

Sweet potato. So versatile! So healthy! You can mash, twice-bake, roast, make French fries, hash browns, YUM! Also, they are just pretty. Always adds a nice pop of color to a plate.
