PhD Students are required to deposit an an electronic copy of their thesis in the University of Cambridge's institutional repository, Apollo. This has been a requirement since 1st October 2017, when the Board of Graduate Studies introduced the requirement that all PhD students deposit both a hard copy and an electronic copy of their thesis. For the avoidance of doubt, the requirement to deposit PhD theses in Apollo applies to all PhDs, irrespective of when the PhD commenced. 

These pages contain information for PhD students about requirements to deposit their theses and advice on how to manage this process. They also contain information for potential researchers and readers of theses.
