Writing a Personal Statement

01

Why have they chosen the particular course of study, and how does it link to their future career?

They can discuss their motivation for doing the course, who or what influenced them, and what they hope to do when they complete their studies. So a student going to study petroleum engineering can talk of newly discovered oil deposits and the respective emergence of the industry, as well as its need for technical manpower. 

02

Why have they chosen this particular institution? 

Here, they can discuss the particular traits of the institution that make it stand out from the others. This could be its location, small class sizes, ranking, availability of course, that they met a representative, given scholarship etc. Evidence of research on where they are going to study.

03

Why Canada?

This could be high quality education, internationally recognized qualifications, safe environment, hospitality etc. Value of doing this course in Canada

04

Reasons to return

This is very important. They need to clearly indicate their intention to return to their home country. They can link this to the course they are going to study and career.

05

Explanation for any extraordinary issues

Because there is no interview, the student should take this opportunity to explain anything they think they need to clarify or that will add value to their application such as study gaps, difference in spellings of names, being sponsored by a person other than their parents, lost passports etc. They can also talk about their hobbies & interests as well as extracurricular activities but nothing that conflicts with what they are going to study.
