15 Important Guidelines for SOP
1- Start with an attractive paragraph which show what motivated you to study that field (mentioning some special event in your life – quotes you read – a belief you have in this life – etc.)
2- Include one idea in your paragraph with short details describing it. If there is more than one idea, split them up in two or more paragraphs unless it is very short idea.
3- Always use reasonable reasons and connect these reasons in a clear way to the conclusions you want to draw from those reasons.
4- Don’t discuss personal issues as they will not help. e.g. My country is very poor, I have problems all my life regarding xxxx issue, etc…
5- Describe clearly your current position (job) if you have, if currently unemployed mention it clearly.
6- Discuss your dreams showing reasonable reasons for having them as a dreams.
7- Discuss your achievements, papers, courses (related to the scholarship only), volunteering, etc…
8- While discussing your research proposal (if any) don’t mention general sentences. Be more specific, not in deep details but to show the reader that you are familiar with the basic terms and the current state of the art. Smoothly drag your reader to the point you want to pursue research even if you don’t know exactly how you going to do it.
9-Try to discuss your path in life in chronological order to keep the engagement of the reader.
10-NEVER COPY PARAGRAPHS FROM THE INTERNET. If you like a paragraph, try to write it with your own expressions and style.
11-Make sure to use the Microsoft word correction service to avoid spelling mistakes.
12-Don’t go deep into details about your achievements especially if they are clearly stated in the CV. The SOP should be complementary to the CV not a carbon copy
13-Try as possible to avoid negative, pessimistic and disappointing expressions. This is a motivation letter not a frustration letter.
14- Please write about your future plans clearly. Don’t just write a general plan. You have to write in steps what is your specific future plan
15- You can write about the country/university you are applying to but don’t waste paragraphs writing about it and miss writing about yourself
