If you are planning to study at a UK University, you must have come across the ‘Statement of Purpose’ or ‘Personal Statement’ as an essential requirement for your university application. And now even after scrolling through series of web pages on sample statements of purpose, you are still clueless about what to include in this statement, then you are at the right page as these guidelines will surely help you get your ‘Statement of Purpose快穿系统女主深吻h’ sorted!

Did you know the Importance of an SOP?

A Statement of Purpose is your chance to create an impression!

As the name suggests, Statement of Purpose gives you an opportunity to state your purpose and goals before the admission committee. Through this statement, you can reach out to the admission committee and impress them with your experiences, skills or hidden talents, which might not be reflected from your mark sheets or transcripts. In fact, an impressive statement of purpose can make your application stand out even if you have average scores. On the other hand, an application with an excellent academic record and a thoughtlessly written or weak personal statement might receive a rejection. So, it is immensely important that you make the most of this statement by showcasing your ambition, knowledge, skills, achievements and most importantly your motivation for the intended course.

Brainstorm First!

Brainstorming is the first thing you should do when you set out to write your Personal Statement. There could be many experiences in your life but you should include only those experiences which are worth sharing. So, before writing the actual statement, you should pen down all your important experiences, achievements and activities. Then, you can select those which are directly connected with the intended course. You can also include some of your attributes which make you unique and give you an edge over others. Jotting down these ideas will also help you in deciding the way you want to highlight these points.

Mind the Word Limits

Some universities provide specific guidelines when it comes to the word limit. So, it is important to check for any such specifications. Even the online Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) undergraduate application form has specified a limit of a maximum of 47 lines or 4000 characters long (whichever comes first). So, you are required to draft your statement carefully keeping in mind the word limit.

快穿系统女主深吻hIn case, the word limit is not specified, your statement should be around 1000- 1200 words as a crisp and precise statement tends to be more appealing for the admission committee which is bound to read thousands of applications.

Grab the attention from the beginning

快穿系统女主深吻hThere could be many ways to write an opening paragraph of the SOP. However, a winning statement is the one which manages to grab the reader’s attention and keep them hooked until the end. You can simply start with your motivation for the course but giving a creative start with experience or anecdote related to the course can be a great way of keeping the reader interested in your life’s purpose.

Include only the relevant

In an effort to impress the admission committee, you might want to include everything about you. But remember, Statement of Purpose is not a Resume快穿系统女主深吻h. The main purpose of this statement is to highlight your motivation for the course and your related goals. So, use this statement to highlight only the important aspects of your life which can bring out your individuality along with justifying your enthusiasm for the program. Your statement of purpose can include:

  • Your motivation for the course including how you got inclined towards the field.
  • Your career goals, both short term and long term. If you have not decided on your goals yet, start thinking about them as focused people are appreciated.
  • Your academic profile including subjects you studied and projects, workshops or seminars undertaken.
  • Your work experience in the field of study or other skills acquired through certifications.
  • Your interests are other than academics like sports, cultural activities, or volunteering, you can use these activities to show other aspects of your personality.
  • Your academic or professional accomplishments.
  • Your interest in the subject and how this degree will help you achieve your goals.

Prove your Credibility

It is important that you prove your worth to the admission committee by providing examples and sharing experiences from your life that will in turn vouch for your skills and attributes. Claiming that you are a great leader may sound unrealistic to the admission committee if you don’t share an experience where you excelled in leadership skills. So, giving evidence for the interest in the subject or the traits mentioned in the statement of purpose goes a long way in affirming your claim of being a worthy candidate to the university.

Show your preference for the UK and the chosen University

You should devote a paragraph highlighting your reason for choosing the UK as a preferred destination. Also, you should research about the university you are applying to and mention the features which make it an apt university to pursue your education. The way you will show your interest in the university will help you validate that you are serious about your career aspirations and the university is the right platform for you to realize your goals.

Say No to plagiarism

Copying some else’s work is something you should completely avoid. Universities use plagiarism checking tools to check for the originality of the ideas. In case, a statement of purpose is being copied, the application will be rejected. So, be original in your ideas and writing. Remember that more than your writing ability, the admission committee will judge you on the basis of your skills, experiences and inclination towards the program.

Proofread your work

It is always better to proofread the statement for grammatical or sentence-level errors. You can even get the help of your family members, friends or seniors who can check the statement for any errors or even give suggestions to improve your drafts. Having a couple of redrafts before the final statement can lead to a more satisfactory outcome.

Here is a Sample SOP for UK University:

There is hardly any field where science of Data Analysis has not made its presence felt. The art of processing and understanding the humongous amount of data can help in effective decision making, leading to implementation of more innovative ideas for successful outcomes. Being an Engineer with considerable experience in digital data and analysis, I find the field of Data Science quite fascinating for it effectively blends technological expertise with human logic. After working for a client in manufacturing domain and learning about new concepts like statistical methods and predictive modelling, I stoutly felt the need for concrete knowledge in this field which became my prime motivation to pursue my higher education in Masters in Data Analytics. With this program, I intend to learn the best tools of analytics and imbibe necessary skills that are required for effective utilization of data.  My goal is to start a new career in my country as a Data Scientist or Data Analyst with best figures. I would also like to challenge myself in next few years, by staying updated and working close to technology.

The roots of my interest in the field of analytics digs down to my school days when I was fascinated with Mathematics and Physics subjects. Their implementation in real life processes intrigued me a lot. I used to stay long time with my faculty till the time I got the reason behind phenomena; as a result, I developed analytical skills at an early age. During my undergraduate degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from XXX University, I diverted to programming language in #C and #MATLAB right from the starting. Although it was not my major area of study, I developed a strong and deep insight in the subjects like Operating System, Algorithms, Computer Administration etc. Data Signal Processing and Digital Image processing as the core subjects were even more interesting as they deal with processing of an image and audio signals. They also deal in improving and disproving the quality using mathematical equations. Predicting the missing part of image using predictive analysis, helped me in building a strong analytical background.

With my zeal and passion towards Information Technology, I joined a corporate company into the role of Assistant System Engineer (ASE). After getting trained in java and SQL, I started working with the client FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). From then I started working on real timer technical data. My role was to collect the huge data from the data base server, filter the given requirements as per BRD and analyse the data by understanding the business requirements. After that I was required to extract the solution for given problem or give an innovative solution for business growth. This project not only gave me better understanding of business and processes but also helped me in improving my analytical skills day by day.

Now with around 2.3 years of experience, I feel this is the right time to upgrade my knowledge of Data Analytics by pursuing a full-time course. I believe this course will equip me with latest trends, data tools and upcoming processes. This program will also help me in improving my knowledge in R, Python, supervised and unsupervised algorithms etc. 

Having zeal and enthusiasm to study masters in abroad, I sorted out few options available and found few programs in USA, Ireland and UK. I opted out USA due to its instability and Ireland as it has lesser job opportunities compared to UK. UK has wider job opportunities in multiple domains like Financial, Manufacturing, Automobile, Banking, Health care, Hotel Management etc., where Analytics had a wider scope in development. UK is also one of the largest destinations for international students, providing the high quality study for value of money. Course duration for Masters in UK universities is only 1 year (mostly), which will save both my time and money. Moreover, the practical approach of study will provide me more exposure to real time work environment. I am quite confident that this friendly practical approach of study, which is more goal oriented, will help me stand out of the crowd, brightening my career opportunities in top MNC’s on return to my home country.

Considering my career goals, I have chosen YYY University which is one of the leading educational institutions in UK. The course curriculum includes Data Mining, Advanced Data Analytics, Data Visualization etc., which are pretty much helpful for strong data science background. I look forward to the Predictive Analysis and Data-driven Decision making for Machine Learning models for predicting the data. Apart from the strong foundation courses offered, diverse elective programs will provide me greater insight into different industrial domain. Also, implementing theoretical concept on the capstone project while working with real time data would greatly help in in future endeavours and make me job ready.

Studying at your university would surely help me refresh all my analytical skills gained through my experience so far and try to work out on more practical knowledge gained at the University. I am sure that, your University will fulfil all my digs in the subjects so far and clear the path for a great career ahead. 

We hope now you know that writing an impressive statement of purpose is not that difficult as it seems. All you need is a little bit of planning, positive approach and time management. So, don’t wait for the deadlines of the UK universities, start your Statement of Purpose well on time and let the university know about the ‘real’ you.

Hi Amarbeer
To prepare an MBA SOP for UK, you may seek help from two different samples (1 for MBA, 1 for UK).
- For UK, the sample is given above.
- For an MBA sample, please visit http://studyabroad.eservicestar.com/sample-sop-for-mba-applycontent1994.
Please note that these samples are just for reference. You should always write your SOP on your own. These samples are supposed to provide you with a structure and give you an idea of how you can create your SOP from scratch. Copied SOPs are immediately rejected by the universities abroad, which sometimes results in permanent blacklisting. On top of this page are given SOP Writing Tips and Common Mistakes to avoid in SOP. All the best!
