    OK so motivational letters?
    What did you include in yours?
    At first I kinda edited my UCAS personal statement but the UVA asks for different info:

    You should use your motivation letter to show us why you would like to study at PPLE. In addition, we would like to learn more about you. Tell us who you are, what your dreams and motivations are and, most importantly, why you think you should be selected for the PPLE programme. We offer a demanding academic programme: 16 contact hours and 20 additional hours of study per week, as well as Talent Development activities. We would like you to argue that you will succeed academically and that you are up for the challenge. Given the fact that you will also be handing in your CV, the focus of the letter should be your ‘personal story’.
    Alright so what exactly did you include? I'm saving things like volunteer work and all that for the CV. Most of my ML so far is just why I wanna study PPLE. I'm kinda worried about saying my ""personal story"" because that sounds kinda stupid. Like what kinda stuff do I include?

    What did you say in your ML??

    To be honest, I am Dutch myself and Dutch motivation letters are a piece of cake compared to the personal statement. As far as I know, the UvA only requires a ML for the PPLE course. If I were you, I would simply use your PS or edit it slightly.

    So how personal do they want the ML to be? Bc the description seems more personal-oriented than the PS?

    I did my ML for Master of Forensic Odontology at KU Leuven without actually knowing the things in bold you mentioned above. Even after googling a few times I still couldn't tell the difference between ML & PS. What I did was:

    First paragraph: Why I chose the course
    Second : A few things about myself; curricular & extra curricular activities and how these will help me manage the course
    Third : Why KU Leuven
    Fourth : Conclusion

    Still not much difference with what I did 7 years ago for my undergraduate PS tbh!

    Hope this helps!

    Ok thank you!
    UVA also asks for a CV so I'm saving all work experience and that for that.
