Fellowship theses

We hold an impressive collection of Fellowship theses submitted to the RCVS from 1896 to the present day. 

Fellowship theses submitted since 1980 are listed in the online Library catalogue, those from pre 1980 are listed in the card catalogue and are being added to online catalogue as part of an ongoing project.

Theses available electronically are as password protected PDFs. The password to open these PDFs is rcvstrust06.

Theses are available for loan by Library members, all members of the RCVS and registered veterinary nurses, who are based in the UK.  For more information on borrowing and our postal loan service please go to ‘Our services’ page.
