The graduation thesis has finally arrived!

Between bureaucratic demands and dates that confuse ideas, the degree is always difficult to achieve. For this we have tried to insert some points that can help and guide you along this path. All information about your degree up to some tips on thesis layout.

The choice of the teacher

Remember to choose your teacher well: he must be very interested in your arguments and above all he must follow you very much, all the more so if it is a three-year thesis and therefore you have little familiarity with a draft of an official paper.

Dates and deadlines for the degree thesis

Expiration dates vary from Department to Department. So in order to know the deadlines you need to trust the single department site that continuously updates the dates. It is clear that the moment you enroll for the degree, you must have already registered all the exams, unlike other faculties. There are exceptions, as in the case where you have not been able to record the vote due to technical problems: at that point it will be sufficient to self-certify it on your personal page and make it official with the professor also during the graduation session. The sessions always refer to the months of March-April, July, November.

The points of the degree thesis

The maximum number of credits obtained with the final thesis is 12 CFU. Furthermore, the maximum score you can aspire to during the final test is 4 points. The gain of points on the final test is therefore minimal.

Keep Calm … Tutored is thinking about it!

It should be said, even if implied, that the thesis layout varies depending on whether you have chosen a graphic design, photography or any other course that requires a more complex work or a “classical” faculty. Now, in this article, we propose the classic thesis layout, most requested in any University.

– Let’s start with suggesting the order of the elements within the layout of the thesis:

  • Cover;
  • Dedication; (optional)
  • Index;
  • Introduction;
  • Body of the text;
  • Conclusions;
  • Appendices or Attachments; (optional)
  • Bibliography;

Acknowledgments. (optional)

More tips for you!

The body of the character must never exceed 12 points. It is useless to enlarge the points of the character. Better a few pages but of substance, that make you understand your seriousness and your commitment, than 200 pages with a huge font.

The recommended fonts are the most classic ones. Arial, Verdana, Calibri, Times New Roman, Times, Palatine (among these the best are Times New Roman and Palatino, which are more readable, therefore suitable for long texts). Recommended large fonts: titles of paragraphs 16 pt; subtitles 14 pt. For footnotes, a font size 10 pt is recommended.

The line spacing (space between a line and the underlying) most frequently used in thesis layout is 1.5 (and never more than 2). It makes the thing more readable, allowing to give “air” to the text, without making it excessively dispersed on the page.

Set page margins. The standard margins for thesis layout are: upper 3cm; lower 3cm; right 3 / 4cm; left 3 / 4cm.

Remember, the title should NEVER be concluded with the point; bold (bold) is preferable to use it exclusively for titles.

Each chapter, to be more fluent and orderly, should be divided into paragraphs (not more than three chapters).

Eye that the images that you are going to insert in your thesis that are not grainy (pixel effect above a magnification% date).
