Before submitting your PDF pay special attention to the following
- The NOT EQUAL MARGIN suggested by Swansea Uni in this page IS TOTALLY WRONG (see 6.3.4 Margins), we strongly recommend EQUAL MARGIN: 3 cm on left and 3 cm on right, same on top and bottom. The default values applied by MS Word of 2.54 cm of margin for all sides are also perfectly fine for us. We actually need a very minimal space on left for hand sewing.
- Not applying equal margin can result in the PDF file BEING REJECTED by us since NOT COMPLAYING WITH OUR REGULATION. We want to obtain a perfect printing result something you will be proud of, that’s why we strongly recommend to always APPLY EQUAL MARGIN to your pdf thesis.
- After conversion from MS Word to PDF format open the pdf file and check with extreme attention that ALL PAGES are OK, make sure any graphic or photos stay inside the recommended margin above. What you see in your computer screen will be printed on paper so spend some time on this important check. If you discover a graphic or a photo that touch the edges just open the MS Word source file resize it to stay inside the content area and resave as PDF.
- Make sure the page number is displayed in the PDF file
- Make sure you have added the declaration page, you can place it after the title page
