ProspectiveProspective Posted December 10, 2015 Share Posted December 10, 2015 I suspect I may be covering well worn ground, but I wanted to get a sense of what people think in relation to two problems that I've encountered in writing my SOPs. The first issue is: how much detail am I meant to give about my proposed PhD topic? That is, I can't quite work out if I'm overreaching in the amount of detail that I've included about my proposed research (thereby alienating potential supervisors), or if I've been too scant? What is the balance? Should I just say "contemporary art" and then give a few broad strokes, or really home in on a particular topic? The second issue relates to applications asking about my future career prospects. It seems so strange to be talking about an ideal job that is likely more than a decade away. Am i meant to name a specific position? Or is that overreaching!?! Thanks for reading and indulging my questions/rant... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
