Past Theses Guide: NCI Theses Online


The library has a collection of hard copy theses. These can be consulted in the library for two hours at a time. 

However many of these are also accessible online. TRAP@NCI is a digital archive of Theses, Reports, Articles and Projects produced by National College of Ireland students and staff. 

*Please note: TRAP does not house full text versions of all of these works - some may have an abstract or description, yet it may be published in full elsewhere.*
