HOW TO PREPARE FOR STUDIES ABROAD

HOW TO PREPARE FOR STUDIES ABROAD

 

By: Ethelbert Umeh

Are you preparing for the next phase of your life?
Are you preparing to engage in further studies abroad?

Do you have someone that wants to study abroad?

Then share this piece with the person. Probably, this may be one of the best gifts you will ever give the person in recent times.

While filling the application for further studies, most Schools will ask you to submit additional materials like CV, Personal Statement or Motivation letter.

Although, these two terms- Personal Statements and Motivation letters are used interchangeably by most applicants, but there is a difference between the duo.

For clarity purposes, the main difference lies in the INTENT of the letter.

Personal Statement is all about PROMOTING yourself:

  • Who you are.
  • Why you are the right candidate for the programme
    *Your background.
    *Your life changing experiences etc.

In a motivation Letter, it is very appropriate you talk about yourself briefly, but you MUST be concisely detailed in talking about:

  • Why you are applying for the programme
  • Why you applied to the specific institution.
  • Your career goals, and
  • How and why the Programme will help you achieve your goals!

In most schools, submitting a Personal Statement or Motivation letter is a necessary condition; if you don’t submit it, you won’t be considered for admission.

Sending a poorly written personal statement or motivation letter, will not still guarantee admission.

Sending the wrong document might lead to your disqualification from the programme.
