The Office of International Relations and Higher Studies is organising a session titled Orientation for Global Immersion and Guidance to Prepare SOP to enable students to lay the groundwork for their abroad learning programmes with a resounding Statement of Purpose. Ms Saloni Sinha and Ms Pragyan Patnaik from the Birla Institute of Management Technology will address the gathering.
Date: September 29, 2022
Time: 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm
A Statement of Purpose (SOP) is one of the most substantial pieces of evidence to facilitate your abroad learning. The clarity it exudes will define your needs and goals in pursuing the programme. Unfortunately, students are struggling to put together an SOP owing to their lack of clarity in drafting the document. This session intends to cast light on all the prerequisites for abroad education and will train students to compose a convincing SOP.
