Your dissertation or thesis should have a title page - it'll look something like the one here (taken from one held at the Solent Electronic Archive 'for reference only').
Figure 2: Example title page
Your faculty should provide you with a standard Solent University dissertation/thesis cover. This has a rectangular hole or ‘window’ through which it should be possible to read the following details from the title page:
- The award for which the project is submitted
- The academic year of submission
- The name of the author
- The title of the work
You have to position the window carefully in the centre of the page. You could create a moveable text box on the page in order to do that, or you could use the template which has the window positioned correctly.
Other information that may appear on the title page but outside of the window space may include:
- Southampton Solent University
- The name of your faculty
- The name of your supervisor
- The date of presentation
Check with your faculty/tutor for their preferences.

The School retains a number of undergraduate dissertations each year for use in teaching and learning, and to celebrate the excellent quality of our students' research activities.
These dissertations are available for current undergraduates to view here. They remain anonymous, as they were submitted anonymously.
They are provided as exemplars, for reference only, and should not be downloaded, copied or transmitted in whole or in part, in any format. They should not be copied or provided to any other person.
The School nominates a number of undergraduate dissertations each year for UK-wide prizes. Nominated dissertations are included in this collection.
Further dissertations will be added at the end of each academic year. They are added as PDF files unless otherwise noted.
