The Research Project Guidelines provides you with the details about how you should go about doing this. The attached dissertation template allows you to commence writing, without changing any styles or fonts. You are encouraged to use this.

Your supervisor will review your dissertation and make comments. Be prepared for substantial re-writes. The policy in our Department is that your dissertation is not submitted to Postgraduate Education Committee for examination until the supervisor is convinced that your dissertation will pass the examination process. This may mean several revisions of your dissertation. At some stage it is worthwhile having your dissertation proofread for grammar and language style by experts.
