This article will provide detailed information on how to present your thesis.

The thesis must be presented in a permanent and legible form either in typescript or print and the text of a satisfactory quality (e.g., Arial, Calibri, Tahoma, etc.).

Pages shall be numbered consecutively through the main text and bibliography, including photographs and/or diagrams that are included as whole pages.

The size of character used in the main text, including displayed matter and notes, should be no less than 2mm for capitals and 1.5mm for lower case (e.g., font size between 10 and 12). Double or one-and-a-half spacing must be used in typescript except for indented quotations or footnotes where single spacing may be used.

An abstract must be included which provides a synopsis of the thesis stating the aims, scope, results and conclusions of the work undertaken and of the contribution made to the knowledge of the subject treated. The abstract should be approximately 300 words in length and must not include abbreviations (this word count is not included in the overall word count for the thesis). The abstract is self- standing and can be read without reference to the main body of the thesis.

Please refer to the "Presentation of the Thesis" section of the Research Degrees Operational Handbook for full details on what your Thesis must include and word counts.
