The Thesis Office is housed in the School of Graduate Studies at 1550 de Maisonneuve West and can help you with preparing and submitting your thesis in accordance with university guidelines. We also manage an online thesis archive which you can search.
Prepare your thesis
Students who are in the process of writing their thesis are encouraged to consult the Thesis Preparation Guide that outlines guidelines on thesis format as well as information pertaining to thesis defences and the final approval process.
If you have any questions about the exact formatting or layout for your thesis, this is the section for you! It provides guidelines for both the formatting and sequence of contents. All the technical regulations are laid out here so that you can get the formatting right the first time around, leaving you with more time to focus on what matters most: the contents of your thesis!
