Writing sample (essay)
Please add the writing sample as a separate file to the "Documents" section of the online application.
The writing sample can easily be an essay or research paper that you have written during your previous studies or it can be written for the application process itself. Ideally, it should focus on the theme you would like to explore during your Master’s studies. The limit for the word count is 2000-4000 words. The first page of the essay must include following info: your name, date of completion the writing sample, word count. NB! The admissions committee will not read any essay beyond 4000 words.
The evaluation criteria for the writing sample are:
- General clarity of structure and readability (40%);
- Problem setting and quality of argumentation (40%);
- Use and reference of appropriate literature and terminology (20%).
