You can embargo your thesis for a maximum of three years. Your supervisor must endorse this application and you will need to supply details as to why you are requesting an embargo.

Under University regulations you are normally required to submit an electronic copy of your thesis to the Library, for archiving in BURA, the University's open access research archive. For theses under embargo, you must also submit an electronic copy of your thesis to the Library in the usual way. The Library receives a copy of the approved embargo and arranges secure storage until the embargo period expires. Metadata relating to your thesis (author, title, date, abstract) will appear on BURA, but the file itself will remain inaccessible until the embargo expires.
