Admission Letters and Personal Statements with Writing Plus

Jan 17, 2022 03:00 PM to 04:30 PM

Registration Deadline: Jan 17, 2022 04:30 PM

Most graduate programs require that you create a personal statement or letter of intent to communicate your intentions and interests for applying to the program.

This session will introduce key components to incorporate into a successful personal statement, and through reviewing samples we'll discuss and identify a writing and editing strategy to help you effectively create your own statement.

This session will be co-facilitated by staff from Career Exploration & Education and a Writing Centre; it can be used as credit towards the completion of Writing Plus.
