A student’s statement of purpose (SOP) is a letter of essay they write while applying for admission, outlining their academic and professional accomplishments, career objectives, the reason for selecting the specific program, and other factors that motivated them to apply for admission to the institution. The SOPs assist the admissions committee in assessing your expectations, objectives, topic expertise, and future outlook. It justifies why they should select you over the other candidates who have applied to study in Canada.
Many students miss out on their chance to secure a student visa because they neglect to give the admissions staff an important piece of information that they are looking for.
Applicants seeking student visas to study in Canada must submit a 1000–1500 word essay known as The SOP or statement of purpose. It is an essay that applicants write showcasing their academic and professional accomplishments and why they deserve admission to the college of their choice.
