There are three different report formats at Haaga-Helia.

  • Assignments format is used for short assignments up to 5 pages, and without cover page and table of contents. This format follows the Finnish document standard SFS 2487.
  • Reports format is used for longer reports of more than 5 pages, and it has a cover page, table of contents, unlimited number of pages and a list of sources used.
  • Thesis format is the same as the reports format, but it follows the chapter structure of a thesis.. 

The format guidelines can be used as template files. Download the files from the list below.

When you use literature and other sources in your assignments, remember to reference your sources according to good academic practice.
