Please note for the template (Document no. 1):

  • You need to replace all grey fields with your own specific information.
  • All parts in italic style format need to be replaced.
  • There are different sections (“Umbrüche / Abschnitte”) in order to format the footer and headers differently --> you have to adapt this in your case, it is just an example. 
  • All subchapters can be prepared according to your thesis content, there is no general rule.
