    Hi, Im an international student and I don't know how to write a Personal Statement/statement of purpose... All the advice I found was for undergrad students, so I need some help...

    How long should it be?
    What should I mention?
    Do you have any tips or websites that teach how to do it?

    I have no work experience and don't have any published work, but my grades are good (top 5%)... what should I say on the PS?

    Thaaank you guys

    Generally, you should address the following questions:
    Why this specific course?
    Why this specific course at this specific University?
    What past academic and professional experiences make you suitable for it?
    What are your research (dissertation) interests and how does this align with the course (modules)?
    What would you like to do afterwards, and how does the course compliment those ambitions?
