When I submitted mine (Cambridge University Physics and Chemistry
Degree Committee, 2003), I used the standard LaTeX book document class
- which I guess you'd call somewhere between single-spaced and
double-spaced - and no-one complained about that.  I had printed it
single-sided.  I'm not sure about "less wasteful" - in those days, I
didn't know about \usepackage{fullpage}.
