The difference between the impossible and
the possible lies in a person's determination

Statement of Purpose (SOP)

Ensure your application stands out

A Statement of Purpose, also referred to as an SOP, is a reflection of your personality that you portray in front of the admission committee (Adcom) for getting enrolled in universities abroad. It is your chance of impressing the committee by presenting your profile strongly through an essay that describes your personality traits, which are not covered in your academic documents.

What is the difference between a Statement of Purpose and Personal Statement?
Those who are planning to apply for studying abroad have this question in their mind. Apart from a few aspects, a Personal Statement seems similar to Statement of Purpose. While SOP includes a two-page essay about your motivation, goals, experience, extracurricular activities and so on. On the other hand, a Personal Statement is a crisp one-page essay about your motivation, inspiration, goals, and achievements. A Personal Statement is more personal than an SOP so a Personal Statement should elaborate on your aspirations and motivations. An SOP is a much more detailed version of the Personal Statement.

Our document editing service will maximise your chance of being accepted on to a university course abroad.
