How should I write the motivation letter or the thesis proposal?
THE MOTIVATION LETTER should be approx. 500 words long. It should mention: “1) your interests in linguistics and how you came to have those interests, 2) your goals and ambitions in the field of linguistics, and 3) how the program to which you are applying can help you to achieve those goals. Avoid generic phrases and try to be as specific as possible.
THE PROPOSAL should include (at least roughly) an area of research, a theoretical framework or approach, the identification of a research gap, question or problem to be solved, the material to be analysed, a brief list of references.
Candidates are also invited to indicate the name of a TUTOR who has expressed his/ her consent to act as such.
