I've also just had to write one. I am applying for Computer Science and wrote my letter of motivation in a similar style to my Personal statement, however, since the University has an internal application for international students I was able to mention why specifically I preferred Groningen over the alternatives.
Hope this helps.
I am currently working on my application to Groningen University for LBB European and International law. I have a question regarding the Motivation letter. I am familiar with the personal structure used in the Uk. For my Motivation letter can I use a similar layout specifically tailored to Groningen University and the program, or does it have to be a letter fomat ( incuding adressee, and sincerely yours for letter ending) ? Can anyone help?
I would recommend writing it as an official letter. We are keen to know as an institution why you have selected our programme, what is it about our curriculum that gets you motivated to want to study with us. The personal statements in the UK are very broad and great to provide you with context as to why you want to study law but if you could be a bit more specific to us as a university that would be great.
Thanks in advance!
I am also currently writing my ML and I was wondering how long you all made yours?
