Guidelines on format and presentation
Your Masters Dissertation or Research Project is the most important single piece of work that you will complete in working towards achievement of your degree. It is important to present your dissertation according to the general standards expected throughout UK higher education. The following sets out the standards as they apply to your programme at Our Business School although your supervisor may recommend slight variations dependent upon your subject area and approach to the research project.
Length 7MG002 (60 credits) 15,000 – 18,000 words
7MG001 (10 credits) 12,000 – 15,000 words
The masters dissertation or research project study is to be word processed and printed using clear typeface (i.e. typically Times New Roman, Arial or similar; not italic or fancy type), in a permanent and legible form. Where copies are produced by any means they must be of permanent nature.
A4 paper of good quality and sufficient opacity (typically 70g/sq.m white) should be used. Only one side of the paper should be used. A left hand margin of 30/40mm should be used, to allow for binding; right hand margins should be 20mm.
Chapters should start on a new page. 12 point size typeface and line spacing of 1.5 should be used for typescript of the main text, except for indented quotations and footnotes when single spacing may be used. New paragraphs should begin flush with the left hand margin. Any abbreviations used should be those in normal use; where necessary a key to abbreviations should be provided.
Pages numbers must be numbered consecutively throughout the text. Pages numbers should be located centrally at the bottom of each page.
Two paper copies of the dissertation or research project are required for submission to the University, and marked for the attention of the member of staff who has supervised the dissertation or research project (not the module leader).
In addition you must also submit the final submission online to the Turnitin Software via your WOLF topic. Failure to do so will result in failing the module.
Submitted copies shall be bound in a permanent way so that sheets cannot readily be removed or replaced.
The first page should be a title page, see the sample in the Wolf page men
