Letter of Motivation

As part of the selection process, you are required to submit a motivation letter as well as a research abstract (in 2000 characters including spaces).

IMPORTANT: Please submit both motivation letter and the research abstract in the same field for submission. Please do not attach it as a file.

A selection process will take place with the results announced 2-3 weeks after the motivation letter submission deadline.

Please note:

  • Our system only supports Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox

  • The 2,000-characters limit refers to manually typed text (including spaces).

  • Copy-paste text may include hidden formatting that exceeds the character limit. We recommend either:

    1. saving as 'text only' in your editor or e-mail programme, OR

    2. copy-pasting it into Notepad and then onto the website.

    Some web browsers do not accept abstracts close to the 2,000-character count.

  • If you have special symbols in your text, please ensure you are using Unicode characters, otherwise these will not be recognised.
