Admission Essay requirements

The personal statement/statement of purpose requirements vary by program. The statement is usually limited to 600 - 1000 words.

It should include your general background (education, work experience, volunteer work, and/or relevant personal experience) and how this background has prepared you for study. It should also include your vocational or career objectives and why you believe your desired program will aid you in achieving those objectives.

Admission essay/personal statement prompts

The personal statement is your opportunity to inform the faculty reviewers of your qualifications, motivation, and potential to make a contribution to the field.
