How to upload your thesis

How to upload your thesis in Utrecht University's thesis archive


Once you finished your thesis is finished and it has been approved as well as assessed, you will receive an email with the request to upload its final version to Utrecht University's thesis archive. This is mandatory. Still haven't received an email? It might take some time before Osiris has processed your thesis assessment.

  • Go to Osiris Student > Cases
  • Choose Archive & publish thesis - Follow-up Case
  • Archive and publish your thesis

Your thesis will remain in Osiris for 7 years.

Master's student? Publish your thesis

Are you a master's student? In that case, you can publish your thesis for visibility through Google/WorldCat. You publish your thesis by ticking the appropriate box. Bachelor theses do not have to be published.

Publication embargo

You can also choose not to publish your thesis, for example because you will be doing further research. In that case, you can set an embargo date. This allows you to block your thesis until a certain date. If you still want to publish your thesis at a later date, please contact the Student Information Desk Humanities.

What should you consider when uploading your thesis?

  • Upload the final version, i.e. without comments and/or markings.
  • Be cautious about including personal details (e.g. telephone number).
  • You are responsible for any copyright infringement.
