e-Theses Submissions (MA and PhD)

Thesis electronic submission is mandatory for all students

What are e-Theses?

TSpaceElectronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs), also called e-Theses, are theses or dissertations prepared using PDF software. ETDs can contain non-text elements such as multimedia, sound, video, as well as text and hypertext links. ETDs are housed in T-Space, the U of T digital library repository designed to capture, store, index, preserve, and redistribute scholarly research material in digital formats. Scholars worldwide are able to use T-Space to search, locate, and download U of T ETDs.  


  • ETD submissions will be online in full colour. Paper submissions are processed in black and white only.
  • ETD submissions allow the author to retain the highest quality of embedded images. In addition to the main text-based PDF thesis file, ETD submissions can also include supplementary files in a variety of formats, enriching the text-based thesis in ways not possible with a paper submission.
