The reason that you chose your preferred destinations plays a crucial role in the selection process, in both your letter and during your 10-minute interview. Therefore, we advise you to devote a sufficient amount of time to preparing your application and interview. The motivation letter is part of the online application for your exchange.
Your letter should:
- include a detailed description of what you hope to accomplish during your exchange for each of the three specific destinations in your top three;
- clearly explain why you have chosen those destinations;
- be well structured and thoughtfully written;
- be written in English.
This motivation letter may not exceed 6.000 characters (text and spaces). If you copy-paste from Word, please keep in mind that Word does not count hard returns as a character, the online application system does.
The more personal your motivation letter is, the more you stand out from the crowd applying for the same destinations.
