IHEID Applicants 2017Watch
This is for everyone applying to the Graduate Institute, Geneva!
Let us connect and help each other!
I'm applying as well, the IR program. How far into the process is everyone and when is your target for finalizing your application materials?
1. You are quite right, as in your motivation letter you should state the reasons why you want to pursue higher education, why at this institute and why you want to take a particular programme. You can definitely add how you think that your professional or personal experiences as well as future goals motivate your choice to apply here. I wouldn't suggest to write a general statement, because admission to our programmes is very competitive and it is important that candidates express the reasons why they want to study at our institute. A general statement wouldn't tell much about you, yet keep in mind that it's a combination of strong motivational letter, grades and letters of support from professors what constitutes a strong application.
Hope this helps!!
Kara0913, are you also applying to LSE and SOAS?
Amymbaum, that would definitely be great if it were the case! Yes, I'm applying to LSE, SOAS, and KCL. Top choices are LSE and IHEID.
