  1. Students are advised to follow the approved standard format of IIUM theses as explained at the website of the Centre for Postgraduate Studies (CPS) if they need to do corrections of formatting.

Students are advised to diligently check the CPS website for possible updates.

  1. Only manually typed Arabic/non-English words (person/place/writeup-reference titles/common Latin terms) will be checked. Any use of auto-translated apps for non-English words to English spelling/alphabet will not be checked as it has a standard format that cannot/should not be changed. Students/writers that use auto translated apps need to check for themselves that the translated words are correctly spelled and the standardized spelling for that word is used throughout the document.
