Statement of Purpose

A Statement of Purpose is a document that describes your academic interest and your understanding of the program for admission to universities. The statement of purpose is an important part of your application that stats your purpose of applying to a particular course in a particular university.

What is SOP?

A statement of purpose should have a gist about your personality trait that shows your uniqueness that sets you apart over other applicants. A compelling statement will convince the reader that you are the kind of student likely to thrive in the program you have admitted in

A thoughtful and well-written statement gets you to your preferred college/university. However, applicants frequently fail to do justice to themselves in statements of purpose. A well-written SOP includes your thorough understanding of your academics and how your selected course will help you to grow professionally in the future.

What should you add to your SOP?

A statement of purpose is a document that describes your personality and answers the below question so that the admission counselor get an idea about your candidature for the admission in the university;

  • Who are you as a person?
  • What are your interests?
  • Why do you want to study at this university?
  • Why did you choose your field of study?
  • Why are you the right candidate for that university

Note: If you are applying for two programs, please submit a separate statement of purpose for each program.

What should be the format of the Statement of Purpose?

Your Statement of Purpose is a key to success in getting admission to the preferred college/university. A thoughtful and well-written statement often makes the difference between admission and refusal. Often, students lack to prepare compelling SOP that results in denial from universities.

Here are some of the important tips that will help you to prepare a compelling SOP;

  • Your Statement of Purpose should be typed and no longer than two sides of A4 paper. There is no fixed word limit for SOP, but we expect statement(s) to be no longer than 1,000 – 1,500 words.
  • Your statement should be in paragraph format that starts with your name and the program you’re applying for.
  • Make sure that your statement contains no misspellings, grammatical or factual errors.
  • Your statement(s) must have your academic interests, and background relevance with the course you’re applying for.
  • Academic ambitions and/or research interests related to the program.
  • Any other relevant information related to the selected course and how this course will help you to grow in a career.

These are some of the important tips that will help you in preparing SOP. Always research before writing your Statement of Purpose. Never copy other student’s SOP from the internet. However, admission counselors are well trained and experienced as they can easily sense that whether the applicant has researched before writing the SOP or this is a copy-paste from the internet.
