Try and follow the presentation points below:

  • Use white A4 paper of a reasonable thickness (not too thin and not thick like card)
  • Single sided (print on one side of the paper only)
  • Bind and cover your paper – plastic comb binding is the most common way
  • use the standard Solent University front and back cover that has window in the front to show the assignment details
Example title page (PDF opens in new window)

Look at the example title page above. It has the dissertation details in the correct place to appear through the cover window.

Remember:

If your dissertation is in any way different to the normal format (as, for example, some design dissertations may be), consult your supervisor for correct presentation.
