Tips for Selection
- CGPA: CGPA is not required for this program as well and IELTS is not needed.
I was a student with a CGPA of 2.02, but still, I was selected for the SUSI Exchange program because of my Personal statement, my leadership skills, my volunteer activities, and yes interview.
- Personal Statement: You need to relate your Personal statement, and answers with the SUSI program.
For example, I was a student of Computer Engineering, and SUSI is about leadership and public policy. I had to make a statement and convince them how my program and SUSI can help me in the future and what change I can bring to my community.
