We do not have a thesis proposal template. The details of this requirement are on the FGS website and it should be written for an audience that is not a specialist in your field. The proposal should have several major elements: background for the area of research, an explanation of the problem you intend to work on, the techniques that will be used to solve the problem, what is new and innovative about what you are doing and why the result will be important (in 3500 words or less). You may wish to speak to an upper year student you know in your area and see if they are willing to share their version with you.
