Statement of Purpose (SOP) for Master’s in UK
SOP (or personal statement) is an important part of your application package. The statement you write provides additional evidence of your intellectual and creative achievement. Such a statement is also the only opportunity for the readers of your application (ie. the admissions committee) to get a feel for you as a person as well as for you as a student.
The SOP is also the place where you can put your academic record into the context of your opportunities and obstacles, your long-term career goals and more.
Your personal statement should be exactly that — personal. This is your opportunity to tell a University about yourself — your hopes, ambitions, life experiences, inspirations, why study in UK, what attracts you about a specific UK University.
SOP should generally be around 1.5 pages long.
A well crafted resume goes a long way. It should clearly talk about your employment, education, and achievements. Generally, we recommend that your resume / CV should be should only be of one page. Here is where you can get a simple explanation on what can appear on a smart resume
Letter of Recommendation for Master’s in UK
A recommendation letter that highlight candidates’ achievements in academic or professional world would add great value to the candidature.
- It is advisable to get such references from one’s academic institution (professors / directors / project guide) or from workplace (reporting manager / CEO) if you have work experience after your graduation. Your immediate supervisor is generally considered to be in the best position to have been able to observe and assess your capabilities
- Recommendation letter should be on the letter headed paper of your College / Employer and should be signed and stamped. Your recommendation letter is NOT required to be in a sealed envelope (like in the case when you are applying to US Universities)
- Some UK Universities also accept an online recommendation. You will need to register the referees online (in the online application portal). Your referee will receive an email from the #BSchool and your referee will have to following the instructions to submit the recommendation online. While registering the referees, it is preferred to have the Institutional or Organizational email id (not gmail, yahoo, outlook, etc.)
- Most UK Universities will ask for 2 recommendations.
Work Experience Letter
Though work experience is NOT necessary for most UK University Masters, if you have done internships or worked after your graduation, then you include the work experience letters during the application stage. Take a work experience letter from all your work places.
Passport Copy and Immigration History
Most UK Universities will ask you to submit the front and last page of your passport. And, if you have previously studied in the UK or have undertaken any visits, UK Universities may ask you to fill an immigration history form.
The interview is usually the last step during the admission process. Most UK Universities will NOT do an interview. However there are some Universities where it is compulsory like Cranfield School of Management, London Business School. These interviews could be conducted by a faculty member or a staff or an alumni or a third party representative appointed by the business school. These interview are more often informal in nature and are meant for information exchange. These interviews allow university representatives to judge the candidates’ focus, passion, future career goals and personality.
Our experience says that interviews last anything between 15 to 45 minutes. These interviews may be through a telephone call or via skype.
Conditional / Unconditional Offer
After your applications are submitted, UK Universities will offer you a CONDITIONAL offer of admission. The conditions that you need to fulfil will be mentioned on the offer letter. It could be about finishing your final year of studies with a specific score or submitting your IELTS test score. Once you meet all the conditions, you will receive an UNCONDITIONAL offer of admission. This means you can move to the next step of making a deposit payment to the selected UK University.
Confirmation Of Acceptance For Studies (Cas)
Once you have made the payment, your UK University will issue a CAS which is the document that you need to submit to apply for a UK student visa. You much check if all the information in the CAS thoroughly before making a UK student visa application and get any errors rectified by the University.

Wall of Fame
We are proud that we could help our students get into some of the top universities in UK
Thanks to ILW to give me the ultimate support and guidance to shortlist the Universities and completing my applications on time to get through the best ones.
I happened to chance upon ILW while looking at the possibility of studying abroad as a backup to my plan of pursuing my further studies in India. I was pleasantly surprised and not the least bit disappointed.
With their vast and in depth knowledge of various factors pertaining to certain universities and their respective countries, ILW, specifically Rupali Ma’am and Vishal Sir aided me every step of the way starting from college selection to the subsequent applications and have provided effective guidance. They also almost act as a confidant in the way that they help one clear the silliest of doubts. They are very helpful and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to pursue their education abroad.
They helped me with everything and have taken care of smallest of details to make sure everything is perfect while applying to the universities. I got into one of the best universities in London and it wouldn’t have been possible without Vishal sir and his team. Rupali ma’am has been in contact with me everyday and she helped me with any detail I need about a certain course, university or any doubt regarding my applications. I would highly recommend ILW to anyone who needs guidance regarding their career and college applications.
ILW Consultants have been extremely helpful to me as well as my sister. It is because of them that I am going to study abroad in a very reputed University. To top it all off, the people working there are polite, kind and very soft spoken. I would highly recommend ILW to anybody who is thinking to study abroad. 🙂
I am from Bangalore and got ILW’s reference through my relatives in Mumbai. The team really helped me with the planning, essay editing, and guiding me right through the app process. I wanted to apply to top UK Universities only. I secured nearly all offers at top UK business schools. I did not join as some of my plans changed and I secured a great job back home. However in the future I do plan to do my Masters and I am sure that I will be using the services of ILW Education Consultants again….. Great team!
