No. Depositing your thesis in BURA does not transfer copyright ownership to the University - you merely grant a perpetual non-exclusive licence to Brunel University London when you agree to deposit your thesis. This licence allows the University to archive your thesis permanently as a record of the University's research output in BURA, the University's open access research archive, and to allow the British Library to harvest your thesis and its metadata from BURA, for inclusion in EThOS, its national collection of research theses from UK universities.
