Open access is also a requirement of many funders. In certain circumstances, for example where there are commercial or political sensitivities, students may embargo their thesis for an approved period. However, this should be discussed with your supervisor. You can find more information about thesis embargoes here. As a thesis would generally require significant revision before being published as a monograph, many publishers do not require the thesis to be embargoed.
Since University of London theses are now only held by the relevant college library. These can usually be digitised on demand if they are not already available, and some universities subsidise the costs. Oxford and Cambridge aren't participating, so enquiries for their theses should be made directly to the institutions.
