Statement of Purpose (SOP) / Essay

SOP serves as the most integral component of your application. A statement of purpose is a personal statement about who you are, what has influenced your career path, your professional interests, and a plan on where you go from here. It should also reflect your eagerness for the intended program.

SOP is your chance to communicate directly to the admissions committee. It must cover all the aspects right from your introduction to visa conditions. Writing a strong SOP is not an impossible task, all it takes is some research, care, attention, and patience. Highlighting your strengths in the SOP will definitely help to grab the attention of the admission officer. Likewise, it is also the winning mantra to overcome the competition.

When writing an SOP you have to show commitment and have ample research done on the subject matter, remember you have to be specific and provide genuine information. SOP writing should be in a simple form with the right selection of vocabulary, you can always include examples and comparisons based on your personal experience.

When you have written your first draft, go over it and check whether any of your phrases are wordy or clumsy. Try to express them clearly and succinctly. While it is good to use longer sentences, don’t ramble. If your sentence is very long, read it over and see if it could be split into two. Reading your SOP aloud will help you to feel if your ideas are clearly expressed.
