How to make application for Ph.D. programmes

Before application: Before you can be accepted into any Ph.D. programme, it is mandatory that you currently possess or you are in the process of obtaining a master’s degree in the relevant or related field you are applying for. A complete application package comprises the following:

1. A Curriculum vitae (CV) of not more than two pages, stating your academic qualifications and work experience (internships are highly welcomed).

2. A cover letter, which tells your interviewer or employer about your skills, accomplishments and the value you intend to bring or what difference you’d make if you are hired. This is simply a chance for you to market and sell yourself. So be sure to keep your cover letter simple and straight to point.

You will also need to provide all your academic certificates from bachelor to master’s level, certificates of internships and other necessary documents that will support your application.
