Do I need to get my thesis hardbound or softbound?
If you are submitting your thesis for examination for the first time, your thesis should be soft bound.
If you are submitting your corrected thesis, it is your choice whether your thesis is soft bound or hard bound.
If it has been confirmed that you have been awarded your research degree and you are submitting the final copy of your thesis, your thesis should be hard bound.
