Binding

First of all, congratulations on completing the thesis!

Before you print and bind multiple copies of your thesis, please check with GRS and your faculty as it is anticipated that the university will soon move to a requirement for submission of electronic theses only.  You may still want a hardcopy for yourself (and a lucky spouse/parent/relative) in which case the information below is still relevant.

Thesis binding is a specialised business so you should be wary of 'bookbinders' who have no experience binding theses. It is worth shopping around as costs can vary significantly. Some companies offer an online service.

It is also a good idea to go to the library and check the inside covers of theses, to see if they contain the name of the binder. That way you get to see the quality of the finished product as well.

Please note that PhD and MPhil must adhere to GRS guidelines for binding (scroll down to section 7.1.9). Requirements for binding of Masters by Research theses can vary across faculties, so check with your administrative officer for details.

Below is a list of thesis binders in Melbourne and Sydney. This is by no means a complete list of thesis binders, feel free to "google" others - we make no recommendation for any particular bindery.

For DE postgrads or for those who can't get to a bindery in person, the whole process can usually be managed by email - check with your preferred binder.
