Panda Tip: The reference list should always begin on a new page.
The abstract needs to be entirely your own words, as every abstract will be completely different depending on your topic.
Like the rest of the document, apart from block quotations, it should be double-spaced and laid out clearly.
Often, the less ‘filler’ in an academic proposal, the better, as this means it is clear to your readers that your work is content-oriented.
Often, the title of a subsection will be enough to introduce it. Panda Tip: From here onwards, this sample is split into 13 sections according to the sections that should be included in an academic research proposal.
