LaTeX allows you to create beautifully typeset and consistent looking documents with only a little learning at the beginning. Using a template means using LaTeX is even easier as the formatting and layout is already set for you, so you just need to supply the content.
There is a LaTeX thesis template that you can use to write your own academic thesis with. The template provides a framework for organising and writing your work and a lot of subtle formatting at the finest level of detail that will produce the most beautiful looking thesis. The LaTeX Thesis Template was made when I wrote my own thesis, it is a heavily modified version of the ECS thesis template by Steve Gunn (original available here) from the University of Southampton. Since then, it has been placed online and improved by others.
