What’s Included: The Dissertation Template

If you’re preparing to write your dissertation, thesis or research project, our free dissertation template is the perfect starting point. In the template, we cover every section step by step, with clear, straightforward explanations and examples .

The template’s structure is based on the tried and trusted best-practice format for formal academic research projects such as dissertations and theses. The template structure reflects the overall research process, ensuring your dissertation or thesis will have a smooth, logical flow from chapter to chapter.

The dissertation template covers the following core sections:

  • The title page/cover page
  • Abstract (sometimes also called the executive summary)
  • Table of contents
  • List of figures /list of tables
  • Chapter 1: Introduction  (also available: in-depth introduction template )
  • Chapter 2: Literature review  (also available: in-depth LR template )
  • Chapter 3: Methodology (also available: in-depth methodology template )
  • Chapter 4: Research findings /results (also available: results template )
  • Chapter 5: Discussion /analysis of findings (also available: discussion template )
  • Chapter 6: Conclusion (also available: in-depth conclusion template )
  • Reference list

Each section is explained in plain, straightforward language , followed by an overview of the key elements that you need to cover within each section. We’ve also included practical examples to help you understand exactly what’s required in each section.

The cleanly-formatted Google Doc can be downloaded as a fully editable MS Word Document (DOCX format), so you can use it as-is or convert it to LaTeX.

FAQs: Dissertation Template

What format is the template (doc, pdf, ppt, etc.).

The dissertation template is provided as a Google Doc. You can download it in MS Word format or make a copy to your Google Drive. You’re also welcome to convert it to whatever format works best for you, such as LaTeX or PDF.

What types of dissertations/theses can this template be used for?

The template follows the standard best-practice structure for formal academic research projects such as dissertations or theses, so it is suitable for the vast majority of degrees, particularly those within the sciences.

Some universities may have some additional requirements, but these are typically minor, with the core structure remaining the same. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to double-check your university’s requirements before you finalise your structure.

Will this work for a research paper?

A research paper follows a similar format, but there are a few differences. You can find our research paper template here .

Is this template for an undergrad, Masters or PhD-level thesis?

This template can be used for a dissertation, thesis or research project at any level of study. It may be slight overkill for an undergraduate-level study, but it certainly won’t be missing anything.

How long should my dissertation/thesis be?

This depends entirely on your university’s specific requirements, so it’s best to check with them. As a general ballpark, Masters-level projects are usually 15,000 – 20,000 words in length, while Doctoral-level projects are often in excess of 60,000 words.

What about the research proposal?

If you’re still working on your research proposal, we’ve got a template for that here .

We’ve also got loads of proposal-related guides and videos over on the Grad Coach blog .

How do I write a literature review?

We have a wealth of free resources on the Grad Coach Blog that unpack how to write a literature review from scratch. You can check out the literature review section of the blog here.

How do I create a research methodology?

We have a wealth of free resources on the Grad Coach Blog that unpack research methodology, both qualitative and quantitative. You can check out the methodology section of the blog here.

Can I share this dissertation template with my friends/colleagues?

Yes, you’re welcome to share this template. If you want to post about it on your blog or social media, all we ask is that you reference this page as your source.

Can Grad Coach help me with my dissertation/thesis?

Within the template, you’ll find plain-language explanations of each section, which should give you a fair amount of guidance. However, you’re also welcome to consider our dissertation and thesis coaching services .

The Graduate College offers a thesis/dissertation template that contains all required content and formatting. You can either write your document from within the template or apply the template’s formatting to your previously created work.

Need help working in the template? Schedule an appointment today.

Before You Begin

The first time you download the template, save the template file to your computer before you begin work on your document. This is important if you are composing your thesis/dissertation within the template or if you are copying and pasting your content into the template. You may need the original template file in the future.

Please note: We offer the Google Doc template for initial drafts of your thesis/dissertation to share easily with your committee chair. We do not accept Google Documents as the final document of your thesis/dissertation. Google Docs does not have the functionality we require for our final theses/dissertations. Please use the Google Doc template while keeping in mind that you will need to convert your document to Microsoft Word later.

Word Template Last Updated: February 2021

Word Document Template Information

Download instructions.

  • Download the Boise State Template from the orange callout ribbon above.
  • Show the downloaded file in the Downloads folder.
  • Right click and select Open
  • Enable Content
  • Click File > Save As and name the file, for instance, Boise_State_Template.dotm (note the extension is “.dotm”) and  Save as type:  Word Macro-Enabled Template (*.dotm) .  It is recommended locating this file on your desktop – it may come in handy if you need to reattach the template to your document in the future (see below).
  • Close this file.

Working Within the Template

To work within the template, styles are applied throughout the document. These styles can be found by clicking the arrow in the lower right hand corner of the Styles section in the Home tab. To apply a style, simply highlight the text that you wish to format and click the appropriate name from the styles list.

When entering your own work into the template, be sure to apply the following styles to the appropriate parts of your document. Failure to do so will mean that your Table of Contents, List of Figures, and List of Tables will be incorrect.

  • Format a Heading 1 in all caps, and centered
  • Format a Heading 2 in title-caps, bold, and centered
  • Format a Heading 3 in title-caps, underlined, and aligned left
  • Format a Heading 4 in title-caps, underlined, and indented once
  • Format a Heading 5 in title-caps, underlined and indented twice
  • Figure Captions are bolded and centered in the template. They may also be justified.
  • Table Captions are bolded and aligned left in the template. They may also be justified.
  • Appendix Heading 2
  • Appendix Heading 3

Formatting Landscape Pages

When setting pages of your document to landscape orientation to accommodate large figures or tables, you must reformat their page numbers so that they will still be visible after binding.

  • Open the landscape page’s header by double-clicking within the header.
  • Deselect Link to Previous, located in the Navigation section of the Design tab. Repeat this step for the page following the landscape page.
  • Delete the landscape page’s current page number.
  • Click Insert → Page Number (in the Header & Footer section)→Page Margins.
  • Select Landscape Page Numbers.

Note: If your other pages’ pagination disappears after inserting landscape page numbers, you likely did not turn off Link to Previous. Undo your changes to the page numbers and restart the instructions.

Replacing Table of Contents, List of Figures, and List of Tables

After your writing and editing is complete, you will need to replace the Table of Contents, List of Figures, and List of Tables.

  • Right click the existing TOC, LOF, or LOT.
  • Click Update Field.
  • Select Update entire table and click Ok.

Note: All other lists (such as a List of Abbreviations or List of Graphs) are not updated automatically. Instead, the template includes examples of manually-created lists that can be altered to fit your needs.

Attaching the Template to a Preexisting Document. If your document is at or near completion, it may be easier for you to attach the template to your existing file than to paste your document into a new template.

Formatting Styles and Applying Styles

Before attaching the Thesis/Dissertation template to your document, you must first apply the following styles to the appropriate sections of your work. It does not matter how these styles look – when you first apply them they will not look right – only that the names of the styles match those in the following list exactly. After you have applied all the styles and attach the template the document will be formatted correctly.

These styles can be found by clicking the arrow in the lower right hand corner of the Styles section in the Home tab. Leave this menu open while you work through the document. To apply a style, simply highlight the text that you wish to format and click the appropriate name from the styles list.

Attaching Styles

  • Access the Styles menu by clicking the lower-right corner of the Styles box on the Home tab in Windows. Keep this menu open on the side of your screen and apply the styles to your document as you work.
  • Highlight the text you wish to format (it is often only necessary to “click in” the section you wish to format)
  • Click the appropriate style from the Styles menu

Note: If the style you are looking for is not included in the list you may need to create the style (see next).

Creating Styles

Some required styles will not be listed in the premade styles, thus you will need to create them yourself.

  • Highlight the text that you wish to format
  • Right click the text and select Styles → Save Selection as a New Quick Style.
  • Enter the appropriate style name and click OK.

Note: Remember, it does not matter how these styles look at this time, only that the style names match the names listed in the table above.

Attaching the Template

After applying styles to your document, you can attach the template, which will fix most of your document’s formatting issues.

  • Download the Boise State Thesis and Dissertation Template and save it to your computer. See instructions above under “Before you Begin.”
  • Open the Word document containing your thesis/dissertation, click file, click options, click add-ins, and select templates from the Manage drop down menu at the bottom of the page. Click go.
  • In the Document Template section, click Attach.
  • Navigate to the folder in which you saved the template and select it.
  • Important: Check the box labeled “Automatically update document styles.”

Adjusting Margins

  • Click Ctrl+A to select the entire document.
  • In the Home ribbon, click layout, click margins and select the mirror margin option that contains inside margin 1.5″, top and bottom margins 1.”

Setting Page Numbers

Be careful that you set section breaks between front matter and body text and also between portrait and landscape-oriented pages (see Manually Formatting Your Document for instructions on setting page breaks). Each has a different way of formatting their pagination.

Front Matter

  •  Set a continuous section break immediately before the Heading 1 on the first page that follows your approval pages.
  • Set a continuous section break immediately before the title of Chapter 1.
  • Open the footer on the first page following your approval page by clicking the Footer button in the Header & Footer section of the Insert tab and selecting Edit Footer.
  • Deselect Link to Previous, located in the Navigation section of the Design tab. This step is only necessary for the first numbered page in the front matter.
  • Insert page numbers. Front matter page numbers should be in lowercase Roman numerals and should be centered at the bottom of each page.
  • Double-click inside the footer of the first page in Chapter 1.
  • Deselect Link to Previous, located in the Navigation section of the Design tab. This step is only necessary for the first page in the body text.
  • Delete the page numbers from the footer.
  • Open the header on the same page by double-clicking inside the header.
  • Deselect Link to Previous, located in the Navigation section of the Design tab.
  • Insert alpha-numeric page numbers, starting with 1, into the upper right-hand corner of the pages.

Landscape Pages

  • Repeat step 3 on the page following the landscape page.
  • Click Insert → Page Number (in the Header & Footer section) → Page Margins.

Inserting Table of Contents and Lists of Figures or Tables

Finally, after your document’s content is complete, you will need to create the Table of Contents, List of Figures, and List of Tables.

  • In the Home ribbon, select References , then select Table of Contents and choose the first option.
  • To build your list of tables or figures do the following: on the Home ribbon, select references, select Insert List of Table of Figures, on the options drop down select either table captions or figure captions depending on which you are creating. You will then have to manually insert the heading.

Note: The template does not include macros for automatically generating other lists such as a List of Abbreviations or List of Graphs. However, it does include example lists that can be copied, pasted, and altered to meet your needs.

Helpful Tips

  • Access the Styles menu by clicking the lower-right corner of the styles box on the Home tab in Windows. Keep this menu open on the side of your screen, or on a second screen, and apply the styles to your document as you work. To make the document styles behave, use the styles in the template. For example, for all Heading 1s, use the Heading 1 style, which will automatically insert a break and a 2 inch margin, etc. As long as the styles are used, the document should behave appropriately, and the table of contents will include the headings once updated. To modify the Table of Contents, click once to highlight the table in gray, right-click and select “Update Entire Field.”
  • Show formatting marks as you work in your document.  Click on the File tab, then Options, Display, and click on the box “Show all formatting marks” and OK.

Guidelines for Bachelor/Master Theses

This sheet contains the most important information for students that have been accepted for writing a thesis at our institute. If there are any open questions not answered here, please consult your supervisor.

General Information

Please read the following link of the computer science department for details regarding the registration and submission as well as the formal requirements of the thesis:  Hinweise für Studierende für Abschlussarbeiten . Please also look at the Formvorgaben für Abschlussarbeiten . Read the requirements of your examination regulations for theses and keep them in mind. While typically these requirements should already be covered by the "Hinweise für Studierende für Abschlussarbeiten" page, double check to make sure that this is the case. The university also offers a general FAQ for students writing a thesis . Note that this FAQ provides content for supervisors and examinors as well which you do not have to read.

Below, you find additional information about specifics at our institute. We do not repeat information from the links above.

Formal Procedure

  • Our secretary needs some data from you to prepare the thesis contract. Please send, as early as possible, the following data via email to our secretary:  address, phone number, e-mail address, matrikelnummer,  and  course of study
  • For the contract, we also need a short summary of your topic/task and a working title for the thesis (the title must be both in English and German. It can still be changed while working on the thesis). Your supervisor might ask you to prepare a first draft of the title and the summary which will then be edited.
  • Once the contract has been prepared, you can schedule a meeting with our secretary for formally registering the thesis. You need to bring the prepared registration form (please refer to https://www.student.uni-stuttgart.de/pruefungsorganisation/formulare/#id-959532c6 ). In case you do not know your working title for the field "Thema", please ask your supervisor. Our secretary will then inform you about the next steps.
  • If you have any questions (e.g., regarding the structure and contents of the thesis) or you encounter problems that you cannot solve yourself,  contact your supervisor . We will usually not initiate meetings ourselves; instead, students are responsible for scheduling meetings as they need them. We encourage you to get feedback from your supervisor on a regular basis.
  • You are required to submit 2 copies of your thesis (unless specified otherwise in the contract) plus one separate copy of the title page.
  • Please contact our secretary in order to make an appointment for the submission of your thesis.
  • Digital Submission: Send your final thesis (as PDF) as well as the required abstract txt file(s) to your supervisor at the University and our secretary by email. Please note that the digital version must be identical to the printed copies.
  • If your thesis includes source code or other digital artifacts, please ask you supervisor at the University on whether and how to submit those.
  • If you wrote your thesis with a company: Make sure that your thesis and other digital artifacts are approved for submission by the company. If in doubt: Talk to your advisor at the company.
  • Depending on your course of study, you might have to give a presentation that presents/summarizes your thesis (see below).
  • Contact your supervisor after the submission of the thesis to schedule the presentation. You should also tell him your course of study such that an appropriate length of the presentation can be determined.

Additional Information for Theses Written at an External Company

If you are writing your thesis at an external company, please keep the following additional details in mind:

  • We need some additional information about the external company that advises your thesis. Please send the name of the company, the address of the company, and contactinformation of your advisor at the company (name, e-mail address, phone number) to your supervisor at our institute.
  • The short summary of your topic/task and a working title for the thesis (see above) generally are proposed by the external company and then approved by our institute, possibly after some modifications. Please forward this information as early as possible to your supervisor at our institute.
  • When signing your contract with us, we will ask you whether your thesis can be published after the submission. Please verify beforehand whether your company allows for publication of the thesis.
  • Please note that if the company asks for a non-disclosure agreement, this must be set up between the company and the institute (or between you, the institute and the company; but never just between you and the company).
  • You have an advisor at the external company and a supervisor at our institute. The advisor typically is your first point of contact in case of problems. The supervisor is your contact for all administrative and examination related questions. This includes, for example, questions regarding the format and content of your thesis, structure, citation style, ... .
  • If the topic has to be modified, e.g., because some originally planned goal turned out to be unachievable, this has to be discussed with and confirmed by your supervisor at our institute.

Form of the Thesis

  • You have to write your thesis in LaTeX using the template from  https://github.com/latextemplates/scientific-thesis-template . 1)
  • Keep the form requirements from the computer science department in mind (see link at the top). The template should already meet those by default.
  • There is no fixed page count or limit. The number of pages strongly depends on the specific topic of the thesis.
  • You can write the thesis in German or in English. If you write in German, do not translate technical terms; use the English version for those.
  • Use a numerical-only bibliography style, e.g., numeric (see bibstyle and citestyle in config.tex ).

1) Have a look at the documentation before using it – the template has a lot of options.

Presentation After the Submission

  • In most cases, the length of the presentation is 30 minutes. After your presentation the audience will ask some questions about your thesis.
  • The presentation is not graded separately, but will influence the final grade of the thesis.
  • There is no mandatory template for presentation slides.
  • Please follow the advice for good presentations from our seminars. If you did not attend one of our seminars, ask your supervisor.

Thesis & Dissertation Filing

The University of Maryland, College Park has entered into an agreement with Proquest Information and Learning Services to accept theses and dissertations in Adobe PDF format via the Web. The university accepts 99% of all dissertations and theses in electronic form.

The submission process is as follows:

  • After your defense, you submit your thesis or dissertation document directly to Proquest’s University of Maryland  Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) website .
  • The Office of the Registrar then evaluates your document online for formatting and legibility, according to the standards set forth in the  Thesis and Dissertation Style Guide . If corrections are needed, you will receive an email from the Office of the Registrar detailing what needs to be done.
  • Once you make all your necessary formatting corrections, the Office of the Registrar will accept the document and begin the graduation clearance process.
  • After this process is complete, the Office of the Registrar “delivers” the documents officially to Proquest, who logs, indexes, and publishes them on  Digital Dissertations , a nationwide clearinghouse of theses and dissertations, to which the vast majority of US theses and dissertations are submitted.
  • The Office of the Registrar also delivers thesis and dissertation documents to the university's  Digital Repository at the University of Maryland  (DRUM) for online publication. DRUM is an open-access archive that is accessible by everyone.

Visit the  Academic Deadlines section  to see the Graduate School's deadlines for thesis and dissertation submission. These deadlines indicate the date by which your academically complete document must be submitted to the system.  Any formatting changes requested by the Office of the Registrar can be made based on an evaluation of selected components within your submission. Requested changes must be made by the communicated deadline from the Office of the Registrar to ensure approval of clearance for the applied semester. 

Style Guide

The Graduate School’s requirements for all theses and dissertations are detailed in the  ETD Style Guide . The guide also the ETD submission process and includes a section on formatting the document with Microsoft Word. It is important that students consult this document prior to beginning the ETD process.

Special Cases

The departments listed below have special requirements for electronic theses and dissertations. Please consult the ETD Style Guide for more information and requirements.

  • The Department of Art
  • The Department of Art History and Archaeology
  • The School of Music
  • School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies

Doctoral Student Surveys

The Graduate School requires that doctoral students complete two surveys prior to graduation.  Learn more about these surveys here .

Third-Party Access to Dissertation

Prior to 2010, ProQuest offered doctoral students the option of allowing third parties to acquire the students’ dissertations. Because there was no restriction on whether or not the third party could sell the dissertation, some third parties, such as Amazon, have been doing so.

If you published your dissertation prior to 2010 and would not like third parties to have the ability to acquire your dissertation, you must contact ProQuest via email at  [email protected]  and request that your dissertation (which is under copyright to you) be restricted from sales to third parties. You should expect to receive a response from ProQuest within 48 hours.

If you published your dissertation in 2010 or later, you do not need to worry about this issue. ProQuest stopped offering this option in 2010.

Corrections to Theses and Dissertations

Once submitted to the Digital Repository at the University of Maryland ( DRUM ), the body of a thesis or dissertation may not be changed. Students may, however, request that a dated addendum be appended to their original thesis or dissertation document.

To add an addendum, students must submit:

  • A written request to the Graduate School ( [email protected] ) to add an addendum to the thesis or dissertation document currently in DRUM. 
  • The request should include the proposed addendum and a letter of support from the thesis or dissertation chair. The letter of support should confirm that the addendum does not substantively change the content of the document and that all members of the thesis or dissertation committee are aware of the submitted addendum.
  • For corrections that arise from the process to review concerns under the University’s policy on scholarly misconduct , the Graduate School will collaborate with the Office of Faculty Affairs on the proper resolution before a thesis or dissertation addendum will be posted. Thesis and dissertation chairs, committee members, and students must adhere to the policy’s reporting requirements if there is a concern that a thesis or dissertation may require correction as a result of such misconduct. 
  • With the written approval from the Graduate School, the thesis or dissertation author should send the proposed addendum and Graduate School approval to the Libraries ( [email protected] ) to upload the addendum.

Students who wish to add an addendum to their document on the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global Database must contact ProQuest directly at  [email protected]  for procedures and fees.

Dissertations & projects: Formatting

  • Research questions
  • The process of reviewing
  • Project management
  • Literature-based projects

Jump to content on these pages:

You are not being examined on your ability to use Microsoft Word. The Skills Team have therefore provided you with a template that already has most of the formatting work done for you. This has been approved centrally by the university.

This page has links to the template, guidance document and videos to support you with using the official University of Hull MS Word templates for creating undergraduate dissertations or independent projects or taught masters dissertations. This is not a mandatory template, but using it will streamline the formatting of such a long document.

University templates

The University has created templates which can help take the stress out of formatting your dissertation or final year project.

Students studying any subject other than those listed below can use the general template provided:

Download the undergraduate final year project or dissertation template here

Download the taught masters dissertation template here

Modified versions

In some disciplines, the undergraduate template has been modified and is available via your dissertation or independent project module's Canvas site. Currently this is the case for the following subject areas:

  • Biomedical Sciences

Guidance document

Front cover of guidance document

Templates guidance document

It includes information on:

  • Working with template files
  • Working with text (styles, table of contents)
  • Working with images and tables (captions)
  • Adding landscape pages

Whilst this says it is for undergraduate dissertations, it is also relevant to the taught masters template.

Video support

We have created a set of videos to support you with using the template. These can be accessed below.

The videos below cover the following (click or tap to jump to video):

  • Downloading the template and filling in the title page.
  • Using styles and updating the table of contents.
  • Labelling your figures and tables.
  • Using the cross-referencing tool to refer to figures and tables.
  • Adding a landscape page to your document.

​​​​​​​ Please note that there is a separate playlist for using the History template: Using the UoH undergraduate dissertation template for History .

Video 1: Downloading the UG dissertation or independent project template and filling in front matter

Note that if you have downloaded the template already from the link above, you can skip to 1 min 30 sec.

Video 2: Using styles and updating the table of contents

Video 3: Labelling your figures and tables

Video 4: Using the cross-referencing tool to refer to figures and tables

This is an optional feature - if you don't have many tables or figures you may wish to do this manually.

Video 5: Adding a landscape page to your document
