Cover Letter Guidelines


SUMS Applicants should complement their CV with a cover letter, directed to SUMS Admission Committee. The cover letter can make a great contribution to your admission. An influential cover letter should highlight your qualifications, communication skills and fields of interest. It should also demonstrate your specific experiences that show off skills required by SUMS application criteria.

Cover letters are a chance to convince the SUMS Admission Committee that you have the potential to be a SUMS prospective student.
