According to NTU’s Open Access Policy, all PhD and Masters Degree (by research only) students are required to submit the complete full-text digital version of their theses to DR-NTU for open access. 

If your thesis has confidential information, you can request an exemption. Go to this link (or you can go to Student ServiceNow Portal > Request for Services > Library Services > Request for Embargo or Exemption of Thesis/FYP in DR-NTU).

If an exemption request has been approved, the full-text of the student work can be exempted from deposit. However, where possible, the metadata and abstract, excluding sensitive information, should still be deposited in DR-NTU.

For more information on exemption, please read here.
