Academic work

Academic work is a learning effect and accompanies you throughout your studies.
The HNE, especially the university library, and the individual person in charge of the modules support you in this learning effect.
The InfoFit section offers you information on citation and scientific writing, among other things.
In the run-up to a seminar paper, term paper, or thesis, basic formal requirements should be clarified.

You will find a pdf checklist with the most important questions on formalities here.

Seminar paper & thesis

Always ask the person responsible for the module in advance about the formal requirements for document processing. The requirements vary from lecturer to lecturer.

Important formal information is e.g:

  • Font type and size
  • Page margins
  • Line spacing

The following information must also be obtained:

  • Cover page template
  • Number of pages

  • Citation style

The HNEE provides a design template in the current corporate design for PowerPoint presentations. If you are working with the template for the first time, find out about further steps that should be considered during the presentation.

Please ask your lecturer for special requirements, e.g.:

  • Frequency of illustrations
  • citation style
  • Necessity of an attached handout (and its design specifications)
  • Number of pages
  • Time limit for the presentation
  • Dresscode
