I'd like to create a cover similar to this:

enter image description here

I found it (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/imperial-college-london-phd-thesis-latex-template/zfybynnyczhb) but I can't make this work, I mean, I read the code:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,twoside]{report}
\usepackage[left=2cm,right=2cm,top=2cm,bottom=3cm]{geometry}

\include{thesis.preamble}


\begin{document}

\title{\LARGE {\bf Title of my Ph.D. Thesis}\\
 \vspace*{6mm}
}

\author{Joe Bloggs}
\submitdate{October 2008}

\normallinespacing
\maketitle

\preface
\input{abstract/abstract}
\input{acknowledgements/acknowledgements}
\input{dedication/dedication}
\input{quotes/quotes}

\body
\input{introduction/introduction}
\input{background/background}

% body of thesis comes here

\input{conclusion/conclusion}

\appendix
% appendices come here


\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliography}
\bibliographystyle{alpha}
\bibliography{bibliography/bibliography}

\end{document}

But I'm not able to find where to change the university name and some other things, like the text in the bottom of the (first) page.

I don't know how to start.

  • And what is in the file "thesis.preamble"? – jon May 29 '15 at 18:11
  • You can see the full code in: overleaf.com/latex/templates/… Choose to open it as template. I don't know how it works beyond this point. – francolino May 29 '15 at 18:17
  • Indeed. But the policy on this site is to have, so far as possible, "self-contained" examples in an effort to make these questions and answers have some value independent of the fate of other websites. (That said, I agree with @Johannes_B's answer.) – jon May 29 '15 at 18:25

Define you own titlepage. Much mor information can be found in How to customize my titlepage.
