Brunel University London requires all doctorate and MPhil graduates to submit their thesis to the Library twice: first, before formal submission for examination and again, following award.

1. Submitting your draft thesis to the Library

Before formal submission, the final draft of the thesis should be sent to CheckIt, the Library's thesis check service using the plagiarism detection software, Turnitin. CheckIt generates a report within five working days, which is sent to both the student and the supervisor for review.  More information on CheckIt is available from the Library's Submitting your thesis web page.
