Formattingguide for Academic texts

On this webbpage you will find instructions on how to write an academic paper in Microsoft Word.

Bachelor’s thesis

Hanken’s bachelor's thesis will use all the advanced skills of the formatting guide. The only exception is if your thesis for some reason does not use appendices, tables or figures, then you do not need that particular advanced skill. Every other advanced skill must be used so that your thesis can be approved.

The Bachelor’s thesis has the following structure:
  1. First section (Roman numerals except on the cover page)
  2. Second section which includes the academic text + references (regular page numbering)

Remember the abstract!

Different Departments have different requirements on the thesis and if they do not have specific requirements on the appearance of the thesis then it is the formatting guide’s instructions that you should follow.
