I have tried to make it easier for you by developing a thesis template. This is a great template to get you started, but remember each university has their own guidelines on margins and order of preliminary pages, so check what your university requires and then you can make changes to the template.
The Word template has been formatted with title page, headings, body text, and table and figure captions. All you need to do is download and start writing. When you have finished you can right click on the Table of contents and Word will automatically update the page numbers for you.
