A PhD thesis is a substantial document that summarises what you’ve been working on for the past few years. It will be reviewed by your examiners, and, alongside your PhD viva, will be used to establish whether you warrant a pass. Therefore, it’s essential to get it right! We’ve produced a PhD Thesis Guide infographic to help you get started.
To summarise: adhere to the word limit and formatting set by your university. If no formatting guidelines exist, stick to 12pt Serif font at 1.5 line spacing. Break your thesis into atleast 5 sections, covering acknowledgements, an introduction, literature review, main body and a conclusion.
