Application for Studying Abroad

Application for Studying Abroad – In this episode Ms. Kunjal Sakhrani talks about important points on how to enhance your applications for studying abroad. As change is constant we need to work on how to keep our Application’s discrete and at the same time keeping it relevant to the profile.

Following are the pointers on how to enhance your Resume:-

Keep your resume simple and short.
Highlight your skills, experience and education.

Make it brief – Include relevant experience and making it easy for the other person to understand you are fit for the profile.
Use a professional font – Book Antiqua and Times New Roman are two good font types & font size-12 as selecting a clear and readable font is necessary.
Include only the most relevant information and put the most important information first.
Use Active Language – It should be written using active language and not extraneous words.

For eg : – achieved, earned and accomplished.

Update your profile with new training you have finished, accolades you have been awarded, and any new professional membership you now have.
If you have actual list of references make sure you list it down at the end of your application. It’s always an advantage to list a few.
Emphasise what you have been doing to develop your awareness and understanding of your field.

Now let’s talk about the Personal Statement as it is equally important while applying to the universities abroad. A personal statement is like a short reflective essay you write about why you’re the perfect candidate for the course you are interested in.

Few tips on how to enhance your personal statement :-

A coherent and interesting essay adds value to your statement.
Write about something with substance that adds another dimension to your application.
Personal statement should sound original, it should sound like you. Be confident in who you are and what you want to achieve.
Write about what you have been doing to develop your awareness and understanding of the subject you are interested in.

Last but not the least Think of the statement as not only an answer to a specific question but as an opportunity to introduce yourself, especially if your program doesn’t interview applicants. It gives you the chance to show how passionate you are for your chosen subject and why you’re suitable for the course. It’s also a way for university admissions officers to find out more about you as a person. And on competitive courses it could very well be the deciding factor in you getting offered a place or not.
