Useful features of Word for Thesis writers

Look for these features in Word 

You can insert a pre-designed cover page - but this is probably best done after your own individual thesis template is created 

  • Styles  

    Add styles to all your headings so that Word can automatically create a table of contents
  • Captions 

    Add captions to each image/figure so that Word can automatically create a table of figures
  • Section Breaks

    Use these to create different numbering styles for different parts of your thesis 

Word provides a range of different Cover Pages for you to choose from

Insert | Cover Page

Select your option. Word will insert the Cover Page. Click in the text boxes to enter your details
