Font choice:

  • Must be appropriate for an academic paper.
  • Must use the same font throughout the thesis.


  • 10 to 12 point font in Times New Roman or Arial for main text.
  • At least 6 point font in tables and figures.


  • Must be black throughout, except for web links.


Please use italics sparingly, and bear in mind that they are not very effective for distinguishing headings.
