Thesis Format

How should I format my research thesis?

There are specific guidelines for formatting your thesis. They can be found in the Preparation of Graduate Research Thesis Rules

It is impractical to lay down general regulations on preparation, form and content of research theses. As the great majority of candidates will have previously submitted a research project or an Honours / Masters thesis, it may be presumed that you are familiar with the scholarly conventions in the presentation of references, accuracy of quotation and construction of bibliographies applicable to your discipline. Some departments issue specific instructions on these matters and you should follow these conventions.

Before producing final copies of your thesis for submission, you should ensure that all the spelling, grammar, punctuation and choice of language are of an appropriate standard and the bibliography is complete and exact.
