We’re here once again for the saving, and we’re going to tell you how to write a winning CV as a student to get accepted into any university you apply to abroad.


Your CV should introduce you to whoever reads it and includes your skills, strengths, and aspirations. An impressive and good student CV is key to showcasing your experiences and academic achievements, and it’s an indication of how serious you are about your application. 


How to Write a Student CV


Here’s how to Write a Student CV:

A CV is split into multiple sections; the first part is just some background information about you. For starters, write your full name (duh) and your contact details, be it your phone number, email, or address.


Next, you need to write a personal statement about yourself and why you’re applying to this program and university. This section is divided into 3 sections.



In this section, add information about your degree, major, university or school, country of the institution, graduation dates, and maybe even your grades.


Work experience:

If you have any professional work experience, add it to this section. That also includes summer internships, training, personal projects, and maybe even any student activities in school or university. Write what you think would show that you’re a great, hardworking candidate.



Add your technical and interpersonal skills to the section. Such as problem-solving skills, the ability to work in teams, communication, social media, copywriting, or whatever your strength might be!


These are the key pillars of writing a killer student CV. Remember that it’s a student CV, not a social media profile, so don’t add irrelevant information like your date of birth, relationship status, or religion. 


You're golden as long as you’re keeping it professional, error-free, simple, and nice-looking!
