### Abstract: Centering

In this template the abstract is vertically centered on the page. Instead, I would like my abstract to begin at the top of the page. How do I do this?

Thanks very much in advance to anybody who can answer this question for me!

Hi,

Simply add a `\vfill` after your abstract text like so:

`\abstract{\addtocontents{toc}{\vspace{1em}} % Add a gap in the Contents, for aesthetics   The Thesis Abstract is written here (and usually kept to just this page).   The page is kept centered vertically so can expand into the blank space above the   title too\ldots   \vfill}`

Cheers,
