I would like to make a frontpage in LaTeX as the one I have made in OpenOffice (attached), i.e. there should be a header for the title of the university, title of the thesis and place for a small picture in the top right. Can I see some examples on how to achieve this most easily?

The attached image only shows the upper half of the front page, the rest is blank.

Use the package fancyhdr. The minimal example is below.



\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} % this is the line thickness under the header - 0pt for no line
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt} % and above the footer

\pagestyle{fancy} % to apply your fancy header and footer

\lhead{University of X\\ {\small Faculty of X}}

\setlength\headheight{40pt} % you might want to modify this number so it does not show overfull boxes, if you have bigger image or more text in the header


\section*{This is the title of the thesis}
\subsection*{A study on how to make front pages with \LaTeX}
