Applied master course: KCL-International Political Economy MA
I also have some extra information explaining my background and my thoughts, just for your information, please see attached. Please do not copy-paste my original words or sentences on the documents I provided, instead, use your own words to summarise and make it more professional.
Normally you should include the below information in the PS:
1 Motivation (it should make sense, e.g. related to my previous education/working experience)
2 Reasons for applying to this university and programme (why this university, why this particular programme, what particularly attracts me: state clearly what impresses me, this could be the teaching staff, particular modules, lab facilities and/or employability ratings. It could also be the reputation of the school or institution. What will I learn from the programme, how is the programme related to my future career aspirations, etc)-IMPORTANT!
3 Connect my previous academic and professional background with the course I applied for (state my suitability for the course, explain why I am the best candidate. It should focus on the knowledge I have obtained from the University, not English skills/academic scores). As for work experience, you should focus on what the internship/work brings to me, what skills/knowledge I have learnt from work, rather than just list what I did daily (too boring, and admissions officer can see it from my CV, no need to repeat in the PS) -IMPORTANT!
4 State my future career plan (it should be clear with position/company).
5 In the final paragraph, emphasize my interests in the applied programme and what I can bring to the university/cohort/classmates.
