Title page

You should examine your institution's rules about what should be entered here, though generally it will require at least your title, name, date of submission and the course for which you are submitting the project.


You might want to acknowledge the help of various people, such as gatekeepers who gave you access to an organization, people who have read your drafts and provided you with feedback, or your supervisor for his or her advice. Don't go over the top with this, keep it brief.

List of contents

Your institution may have recommendations or prescriptions about the form this should take. Make sure the page numbers correspond with those in your report and remember that usually you should provide a separate list of tables and figures (with page numbers).
