How to submit HKU Theses


Research Postgraduates (RPg)

Starting from 1 January 2017, the Thesis Submission E-Form: MPhil & PhD will replace the previous print form to facilitate a more efficient and convenient workflow for RPg theses submission.

Before submitting, please check 'Format of HKU ETDs' for proper computer format and number of files to submit, and 'Create an ETD' on instructions on how to convert your thesis to a PDF file. 

When you are ready to submit, login to the E-Form with your HKU Portal account or via a combination of your student ID, telephone number, and HKID. Instructions are available as you go along. For an overview of the submission process, please refer to the online submission workflow.


Taught Postgraduates (TPg)

TPg students should first check with their Faculty Office on the requirement for ETD submission.  For submission, they should fill out the Other HKU Degrees Thesis Submission Form and save their thesis on a CDROM or DVDROM.  Please enclose the CDROM or DVDROM in a paper or plastic envelop.  Do not apply sticky tapes to the CDROM or DVDROM surface.  Please also note that the CDROM or DVDROM will not be returned to the students.
