FYP / Thesis

NTU students are required to submit your Final Year Project (FYP) report or thesis to DR-NTU for wider access.

Please note that your submission should not contain personal, confidential or sensitive information, you can either anonymize or remove it from your work before submission. Under some special circumstances, e.g. your work is pending publication or patent application, you may request an embargo for up to 2 years. If your work contains confidential or sensitive information despite attempts to anonymize or remove it, you may request an exemption from submission. For more details, please read the embargo & exemption guidelines and the terms of use of DR-NTU. 

When to submit:
Submit the final version of your FYP or thesis to DR-NTU directly once it is approved by your supervisor. For the actual deadline for submission, please refer to the guidelines from your school or Office of Academic Services. Please note that the Library needs at least 2-3 weeks to process your submission during the peak periods, thus please submit your work at your soonest to avoid last-minute rush and processing “jam”.

Prepare for submission:

    3. Degree

In conjunction with NTU Research Integrity Policy and guidelines, all theses and dissertations by students should include Thesis Declaration Statements that are acknowledged and signed by students and supervisors, prior to submission. Please refrain from using signatures intended for any official purposes in the Thesis Declaration Statements and opt to use your initials instead.
  3. Combine your report as one single file (e.g. put appendices, tables, bibliography, etc., together and not as separate items).
  4. Convert the full-text of the report to unsecured PDF file.
  5. Save accompanying materials (e.g. photo journal, video, audio, etc.) in common multimedia formats (e.g. JPG, MP4) and upload as separate files.
