Online Course Description
Looking for that ideal place to write your PhD…. Well, you have plenty of competition. Admissions tutors may get up to ten applications for each place, and for ten places, that is one hundred applications to read. What they basically want is to get the number down to no more than twenty as quickly as possible, and those rejected in this stage don’t get reconsidered. It is your task to capture their interest sufficiently to merit the attention that it deserves. This class is in two parts. In the first part, I will discuss how you to chose a department that best matches your profile and then how to wi]rite an application that exudes authority, creativity and mastery of the topic. In the second part, I will discuss with you the application that you have written.
