Page Margins

Page margins allow for the sewing and trimming during the binding of the dissertation. The visual appearance of the page is also dependent upon the proportion of the text area to margin area.

Margins must be consistent throughout the dissertation. The most appropriate margins for the A4 paper size are:

(i) Top and right-hand margins 20mm

(ii) Left-hand margins (the spine of the book) 40mm

(iii) Bottom margins 40mm
