Version 1.0, Thursday 1 February 2001


This document explains some conventions about the form and style of dissertations and describes how to achieve these effectively using Microsoft Word. It is intended as a guide for Canterbury Business School students writing a dissertation as part of their MBA, MSc or final-year undergraduate project. It does not describe how to write in good English, how to reference correctly or how to choose what material should go in the dissertation. That does not mean these issues are not important.
