About the event:
To celebrate International Education Week, WES Advisor is hosting a webinar on an essential component of the U.S. college and university application process: the personal statement.
Writing a personal statement, also referred to as a personal essay, is typically a requirement for U.S. undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral program applications, as well as scholarship and financial aid applications.
For international students, especially those who are non-native English speakers, the personal statement can be a challenge to write.
In this webinar, we discuss how to craft a strong personal statement that will impress admissions officers and scholarship review committees.
This webinar is intended for international students applying to colleges and universities in North America, or anyone simply looking to improve their writing skills in English.
In this webinar you will learn about:
- Tips for writing a personal statement
- Common mistakes to avoid when writing a personal statement
- Different essay formats
- How to structure a personal statement
