They say an SOP can make or break your chance of studying in your desired university abroad? Is it true? And, for the uninitiated, what is SOP anyway? Read on to know everything you ever wanted to know about this most important document in your student visa application!
What is a SOP and How to Write It?
So A Statement of Purpose (SOP), also known as a research statement or a letter of intent, is written to the admission panel, which is responsible behind your admission in that particular program. SOP basically mentions about your academic background, your educational interests, professional contributions, goals and the main reason which steered your mind towards pursuing this program or course abroad.
It will not be an exaggeration to say that the SOP is the decision maker of your application.
Sometimes a well-written SOP does great work in helping you put a great impression before the admission panel even without having a great academic profile. It happens when you clearly mention your goals and ambitions.
In a nutshell, a well-written SOP brings before the admission committee your overall personality and why the universities must choose you over other applicants. Other than that, the SOP also shows how well one is able to express their thoughts using language and writing skills.
Format: A State Of Purpose is usually submitted in the form of an essay, however, certain universities may also keep it question-based.Components of a good SOP
