Ready to submit your thesis? The first impression counts – and the last impression remains forever!

As Charles R Swindoll said, “The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.” Writing a thesis or dissertation is for students the most important part of their education, where they are required to create a comparatively long academic document.

Not only does the first impression matter, the last impression is even more important, because it will probably remain forever. This article highlight the necessary steps one should take before submitting a paper or a thesis in order to ensure that it is impressive down to the smallest detail.

Whether being an undergraduate, postgraduate or doctoral student, it all ends with writing a dissertation or thesis paper that is graded and marks the end of one’s study program. Universities lay down many specific requirements for the preparation of academic paperwork. These requirements do not only concern the writing itself but also the handing in of the dissertation or thesis.
