Stylistic consistency and precision of presentation are essential features of a scholarly work. If the confidence of the reader is lost due to inaccuracies in the author’s presentation, the entirety of the author’s work is devalued. Your scholarship will have the greatest impact on readers when it is consistently formatted from beginning to end.
Your thesis or dissertation committee will help you decide which style guide to use in your document, e.g., APA, MLA, Turabian, Chicago Manual of Style, etc., but there are some formatting items that the Graduate School requires in the document that may differ from that selected style guide. The PDF, " Organization, Formatting, and PDF Conversion Guidelines for Theses, Dissertations, and Doctoral/Lecture Essays ," is a collection of formatting items that the Graduate School requires students make in the final document that may be different from the main style guide you've used in the document. This PDF should be downloaded and printed out for reference before you begin writing.
MICROSOFT WORD FRONT-MATTER TEMPLATES BY DEGREE
The way the main body of the thesis or dissertation is formatted is up to you and your committee with the goal of applying consistent formatting conventions throughout the entire document. However, the unnumbered front matter of all UM theses and dissertations must be uniform in appearance. To help you format the front matter, the Graduate School has prepared Word templates by degree for you to use in your document. Please download the appropriate Word file and use it to format the unnumbered front-matter pages of your thesis or dissertation:

The following video demonstrates how to set up your page numbers according to ETD guidelines in Microsoft Word.
PREDEFENSE FORMATTING REVIEW (optional)
If you want to get a head start on formatting issues, an optional predefense formatting review from the Sr. Editor is available upon request by e-mailing the draft to [email protected] . Students who request the predefense formatting review typically send the draft to the Sr. Editor at the same time the draft is sent to committee members for review before the defense date, usually two weeks before the defense date. Drafts can be sent as (1) one Word file of the entire manuscript; (2) the entire manuscript separated into no more than 4 Word files; (3) one PDF of the entire manuscript (preferred).
The University is unable to offer support for students who use LaTeX to prepare the final ETD document. However, over the years, graduate students have taken the initiative to prepare a LaTeX template suitable for producing a final ETD document and have shared the template with the Dissertation Editor. Those interested in obtaining the template should send an e-mail to [email protected] . The latest template was prepared in 2020. Please note that the Dissertation Editor can only provide the LaTeX template and is unable to provide assistance with using the LaTeX template.
VISIT THE [email protected] INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY
When preparing your ETD, it can be helpful to go to the [email protected] institutional repository to see what a final, accepted thesis or dissertation looks like and how information about you and your work will appear online.

Thesis and practicum
The Faculty of Graduate Studies requires masters ( thesis/practicum routes only) and doctoral students to present, submit and defend a written thesis or practicum as partial requirements for their degree. Ensure you are familiar with the rules and requirements for creating and submitting your thesis. Seek help with your work if you need it from the many UM supports available to you.
On this page
Thesis and practicum defined, writing, formatting and submitting your thesis or practicum, the phd oral examination process, graduate student writing support.
A thesis is a formal comprehensive, written document describing original research completed on a chosen subject. This work may include, but is not restricted to:
- investigation aimed at a discovery and/or interpretation of facts
- challenge and/or possible revisions of accepted theories or laws
- the ordering and synthesizing of existing findings to support a conclusion, which could open up new research directions
An essential feature of the thesis is the candidate’s demonstration of competence to complete a research project and present the findings. In particular, the PhD thesis must constitute a distinct contribution to knowledge in the major field of study, and the material must be of sufficient merit to be, in the judgment of the examiners, acceptable for publication.
A practicum differs from a thesis in its emphasis on the application of theory; however, it is similar in scope, span, and rigor. The extent of work required for the practicum is equal to that required for the master’s thesis.
In general, the practicum takes the form of an exercise in the practical application of knowledge and skills. It usually involves:
- the careful definition of a problem
- the application of appropriate knowledge and skills to the problem
- a report of the results in a manner suitable for evaluation by an examining committee.
Theses and practica will vary depending upon the discipline and academic unit. Each student must familiarize themselves with Faculty of Graduate Studies and departmental regulations regarding the thesis and practicum.
Frequently Asked Questions on PhD Committees and thesis Distributions
Refer to these guidelines and requirements to help ensure your thesis or practicum meets university standards for acceptance.
What to know before you start
Before you begin your thesis or practicum, review the time frame and milestones for its completion and the important rules regarding research ethics, academic integrity and copyright.
Formatting your thesis
Follow these detailed specifications for formatting your thesis to ensure it meets the standards required by the University of Manitoba libraries and Library and Archives Canada.
Checking originality of your work
Use iThenticate, a plagiarism detection software, to ensure the originality of your written work before submitting your thesis.

KUALA LUMPUR: Sebelum ini kita sering dengar kisah mengenai bagaimana idea dan inovasi yang dicuri atau diciplak daripada pemilik asal, namun jarang ia diketengahkan.
Biasanya mangsa adalah golongan yang tidak tahu hak mereka dari sudut undang-undang, manakala pemangsa pula sama ada berkuasa atau yang tahu kelemahan sistem untuk dimanipulasi.
Berita berkaitan: UM lapor polis nafi dakwaan curi hasil kerja calon PhD
MEDIA VARIASI menerima aduan daripada seorang penuntut peringkat kedoktoran (PhD) berasal dari Yemen mendakwa dirinya dibuang Universiti Malaya, idea dan data kajiannya dicuri.
Abbod Ali Mohammed Saeed, 34, adalah seorang pemuda yang bijak kerana pada tahun 2015 dia memberi solusi kepada isu pengangkutan yang belum pernah ada di Malaysia iaitu mengggunakan pengimbas Meshlium untuk mengesan kenderaan.
Berita berkaitan: Isu calon PhD: Rakyat Yaman buat demonstrasi tuntut campur tangan kerajaan
Menerusi laporan polis dan Akuan Sumpah (SD) dikemukakannya, dia mendakwa sistem, kajian dan data PhD miliknya disalah guna oleh dua penyelia program yang dipercayai menggunakannya untuk kepentingan perniagaan peribadi mereka.
Pada awal 2015, Abbod memberi cadangan kepada penyelia untuk menggunakan pengimbas Meshlium dalam Advance Intelligent Transportation System (AITS) dan penyelia setuju ia dijadikan topik PhD.
“Penyelia itu menawarkan kepada saya untuk menggunakan projek tersebut dalam syarikat penyelidikan UM dan kami berkongsi hak paten mengikut peraturan dan undang-undang UM.
“Namun setelah kajian selesai pada 2017 tiba-tiba kata laluan untuk akses ke sistem saya ditukar dan penyelia berkenaan memaklumkan sistem itu sudah menjadi hak milik syarikatnya yang tiada kaitan UM.
“Saya telah melaporkan isu ini kepada pengurusan universiti bagaimanapun selepas itu penyelia meminta saya meneruskan kajian kerana didakwanya yang sebelum ini tidak lengkap.
“Penyelia itu juga tidak membenarkan saya menggunakan peralatan bagi menyiapkan kajian kerana didakwanya itu milik syarikatnya.
“Saya telah mengadukan perkara ini kepada universiti, mereka berjanji untuk selesaikan isu ini dengan melanjutkan tiga semester dan menyediakan peralatan yang diperlukan namun saya dapati tiada peralatan disediakan di makmal universiti.
“Dalam semester kedua, pada April lalu saya dikejutkan dengan surat pemberhentian pengajian secara tiba-tiba, saya rasa dianiaya, dibuli, dipergunakan untuk kepentingan mereka,” katanya kepada MEDIA VARIASI.
Abbod telah membuat laporan polis pada 14 Ogos lalu dan surat Akuan Sumpah pada Sabtu turut mendakwa memiliki semua bukti dan dokumen yang mengesahkan idea, cadangan, kertas kerja dan data kajian adalah miliknya.
Dia juga mengemukakan aduan kepada Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia setelah lapan bulan aduannya kepada Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi tidak mendapat maklum balas.
Lebih mengejutkan, Abbod mendakwa insiden yang sama berlaku kepada beberapa pelajar tempatan iaitu hasil kerja mereka dicuri dan tempoh pengajian menjadi terlalu lama.
“Ada pelajar Sarjana yang menghabiskan tujuh tahun untuk menyiapkan hasil kerjanya namun tidak tahan berhadapan penyelia yang agresif,” katanya.
Rentetan insiden itu, Abbod mendakwa telah mengalami tekanan dan kemurungan.
“Salah guna kuasa telah berlaku dengan mengambil data kajian saya selama tujuh tahun diusahakan, menghalang saya mendapatkan data kajian yang saya usahakan, tidak memberi penyelia lain, dihalang menjalankan eksperimen akhir untuk melengkapkan PhD dan membuat laporan penilaian yang palsu sehingga saya dibuang.
“Saya sudah habis beratus ribu ringgit demi mendapat ilmu di Malaysia dari peringkat Ijazah sehingga PhD walau ambil masa 15 tahun pengajian saya sudah berada di peringkat ini.
“Kali ini saya dimalukan, diberi maklumat salah dan gambaran salah mengenai diri saya.
“Walaupun mereka beragama Islam tetapi tidak mengamalkan prinsip Islam yang tidak menganiaya, tidak menzalimi orang lain.
“Saya mohon pihak polis, pihak Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi membuat siasatan semoga saya pelajar terakhir yang menerima nasib sebegini.
“Saya mahu habiskan PhD saya dan pulang ke Yemen memandangkan ibu saya juga sedang sakit,” katanya.
Sementara itu, Naib Canselor UM, Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Hamdi Abd Shukor ketika dihubungi MEDIA VARIASI memaklumkan akan meneliti laporan itu.

What happened to the researcher Aboud is unfortunate and unexpected at a prestigious university such as Malaya University!! I strongly condemn this arbitrariness and injustice against doctoral researcher Aboud, and I call on the vice-chancellor of the University of Malaya to do justice, rehabilitation, and compensation for him, and hold those responsible for the injustice and defamation suffered.
Deans of faculties, heads of departments as well as supervisors at University Malaya deal with researchers with remarkable disregard, claiming that they are above the law and not held accountable by higher authorities! And so the injustice, humiliation, and robbery of researchers continue, and I say all this because I graduated from this university a few years ago.
I have left Malaya University and Malaysia as a whole, and unfortunately, I say that I have no affection for the University and its officials, for ever.
Brothers, please review your approaches to your students and researchers. These researchers serve the university and its international ranking. They do their best and take nothing from it.
And in Allah’s control is the result of all matters.
I condemn the university sudden decision. They should have make an investigation and find the main reason of the delay in his study instead of dismiss the researcher.
The University has all his study history and performance as he was in UM since his bachelor degree. Yaman send their best students to study in Malaysia and Aboud was one of them.
Very sorry to hear this news
I am very saddened and shocked to read this, Abood is one of the most intelligent and kind of friends I ever had. He is honest and hardworking person. UM should reconsider the decision and listen to the student appeal. I am sure and I know Abood for more than a decade he is honest on what he said. May Allah stand by his side
This is insane. An investigation need to be conducted and the one abuse the law must be hold accountable
Similar thing happened to my student.
Read it here. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=5672747812737060&id=100000056932359
It’s in UKM.
So sad! I read the story and I never believed that such injustice happened at University of Malaya!
This is a topic that’s near to my heart… Many thanks! Exactly where are your contact details though?
Thank you! You may get our contact on the bottom of our website or you can email to [email protected]

History PhD Degree Requirements
Doctoral students in history are required to fulfill several preliminary requirements (including coursework, research, foreign language competence, and comprehensive examinations) before researching, writing, and defending a doctoral dissertation. Students are admitted to the program with a designated advisor who oversees each student's course of study with oversight from the department's Graduate Committee.
To advance to formal PhD candidacy, doctoral students must fulfill the following requirements:
I. Coursework & Credits
- Students need 60 graduate-level credits beyond the B.A. for the doctorate. Of these, 45 credits must be from graduate courses taken while enrolled in the program and/or up to 30 transfer credits accepted by the Graduate School. The remaining credits to reach the minimum 60 may include any combination of additional coursework, public history internships, independent studies, and dissertation credits.
- Applicants with an M.A. in History will be informed at the time of their admission how many transfer credits up to thirty (30) the Department will recommend to the Graduate Dean. If that number is less than 30, after their first semester in the program, the student may petition the Graduate Committee to recommend acceptance of additional transfer credits. Thesis credits are not transferable. See UM Graduate School Policy D2.100 for additional restrictions.
- Students entering without transfer graduate credits may count toward their degree up to nine (9) credits of graduate coursework taken outside the History Department while they are enrolled in the program.
- Students with up to 15 accepted transfer credits may count up to six (6) credits of graduate coursework outside the History Department.
- Students with 15 or more accepted transfer credits may count up to three (3) credits of graduate coursework outside the History Department.
- All students must take a 400 or 500 level research seminar.
II. M.A. Thesis or Non-Thesis Option
- Students who enter with an M.A. in History do not need to complete an additional thesis or non-thesis degree option. Students who enter with only a B.A. must complete a thesis or non-thesis option to receive their M.A. This requirement may be fulfilled by submission of a portfolio consisting of two research papers written while enrolled in UM's history graduate program. These papers must be approved by a committee of three faculty members.
III. Foreign Language
- Students must demonstrate competence in foreign languages. Students in U.S. history will be required to demonstrate competence in one foreign language. Students in other areas will be required to demonstrate competence in two foreign languages. Passage of 102 at UM or the equivalent course elsewhere will demonstrate competence. Students may also satisfy the requirement by taking the ETS exam and scoring above the 45th percentile. These requirements are a minimum. At their discretion, advisors may require a higher degree of competence or additional languages.
IV. Comprehensive Exams
- PhD comprehensive exams consist of written and oral exams in three fields. Students will consult with their advisors to determine what three fields will best serve their research needs and teaching goals. The exams are intended to test students’ knowledge of each field and evaluate their abilities of historical interpretation and synthesis. Students are expected to master the literature in their fields and be aware of important historiographical trends.
- The examining professor will determine the specific requirements for each field, but the department recommends reading lists of approximately 100 books and articles.
- In order to qualify to take the comprehensive exams, students must complete all required coursework with a minimum 3.5-grade point average and meet the foreign language requirement.
- Students entering the PhD program with an MA degree typically take comprehensive exams in their second year of Students entering with only a BA degree typically take the exams in their third year of study.
- Students first take separate written exams in each of the three fields. The examining professor will determine the requirements for the written exam, but recommended forms of assessment include a time-restricted essay exam, historiographical essay(s), and/or course syllabus. The oral exams are given the week following the written exams and are administered all together by the same professors who administered the written exams.
- In consultation with their advisors, students are encouraged, during their first and second years of study, to seek out faculty willing to serve as their examiners. No two fields may be taken with the same examiner. Normally, the student's advisor serves as the chair of the examining committee.
- Students receive a grade of pass or fail on the comprehensive exams. All professors on the committee must agree that the student has passed. Students are informed orally, at the end of the oral examination, of the examining committee's evaluation of their performance. Students who fail to pass their exams may take them a second time. Failure on the second attempt will mean termination from the program. If the examining committee agrees that the student's performance on the oral and written exams is outstanding and meritorious, the committee may award a "distinguished pass."
V. Dissertation Proposal and Dissertation Committee
- Students are required to submit a proposal for a dissertation project, which must be approved by the student's dissertation committee. In consultation with their advisors, students choose members of their dissertation committee and gain the consent of each faculty member concerned. Normally, committees are composed of five faculty members, and the student's advisor serves as the chair of the committee. At least three members of the committee must be members of the History Department. One member of the committee must come from outside the History Department. Students should consult with all members of their dissertation committee while constructing the dissertation proposal.
- The student and the dissertation committee will convene a Dissertation Proposal Hearing where faculty members assess the strength of the dissertation proposal. Dissertation proposals will be assessed on a pass or fail basis. All members of the committee must agree that the student has passed. Students are informed orally, at the end of the proposal hearing, of the dissertation committee's evaluation of their dissertation proposal.
- Students are required to hold their Dissertation Proposal Hearing no later than 1 year prior to the intended date of the oral defense of the dissertation. To schedule your Dissertation Proposal Hearing, please fill out the PhD Dissertation Proposal Hearing Scheduling Form and submit a copy to the History Department Office and to the Director of Graduate Studies.
Upon completion of the above requirements (I – IV), PhD students officially advance to PhD candidacy or "ABD" (All But Dissertation) status. The following requirements remain:
VI. Doctoral Dissertation
- Students are required to write a doctoral dissertation that is an original contribution to scholarship. It must be presented in acceptable literary form. It must be of a quality that all or a substantial part of it would merit eventual publication.
- The final stage will be an oral defense of the dissertation. The student must provide the members of his or her dissertation committee with completed copies of the dissertation three weeks before the defense. Oral examinations are open to the public and guests may ask questions on recognition by the chair. Dissertations will be assessed on a pass or fail basis. All members of the committee must agree that the student has passed. Students are informed orally, at the end of the defense, of the dissertation committee's evaluation of their dissertation.
- To schedule your dissertation defense, please fill out the MA Thesis/PhD Dissertation Defense Scheduling Form and submit a copy to the History Department Office and to the Director of Graduate Studies.
