About the Statement of Purpose

The Statement of purpose is one of the most important, and challenging, elements of your application. It is your opportunity to stand out from hundreds of other applicants. Your Statement of purpose needs to reflect who you are and why you would be an asset to the programme you are applying to. It should convince us that you have solid achievements behind you that show promise for your success in graduate studies.

We will consider your answers carefully in our admission process. Don’t forget to submit your CV in addition to the statement of purpose! There is no specific format requirement or template for the CV. 

If you are applying for more than one programme requiring a Statement of purpose, make sure that you fill out and upload the correct version of the document for all the programmes you are applying for.
