Presentation of essays

Adapted from Cottrell, 174

Departments may have specific presentation requirements and it is up to you to check these and adhere to them. The following is simply a set of general guidelines to be used in the absence of specific guidelines from your department.

  • always supply the title of your work either as a heading or on a cover page
  • write or type on one side of the page only
  • make sure your name and id number are on every page
  • number your pages
  • double space your work
  • if handwriting, it must be legible and neat. If at all possible, type your work as this makes it easier to make corrections etc.
  • follow binding instructions carefully if provided. Normally essays do not require binding
  • if typed, used only one font throughout and use only one size for main text
  • use a simple, legible font for your final draft
  • either centre or align headings but be consistent
