Writing a Statement of Purpose

The statement of purpose (SOP) is your letter explaining why you want to study for a postgraduate course in a particular university, and why you think you would be a suitable person to study in that department and institution. Bilwrite offers occasional workshops on writing an SOP; we are also happy for students to bring their SOPs to a tutorial to discuss them. In the mean-time, here are some links to sites that may help you in writing your SOP.
