My cv and cover letter

    Dear All,

    I'm just wondering would any experts out there be willing to have a glance over my CV and letter of application and critique them for me. I'm aware that Theo does not do this, perfectly understandable. But is anyone else able to?

    I would really appreciate it so much, I feel all in a muddle trying to sort out the letter, I feel like I'm repeating my CV

    Thank you!

    Why do you have a CV? Have the schools you've been interested in applying to asked for CVs?

    I'm applying internationally. They all ask for CVs

    Fair enough - you may understand that I asked because some UK applicants think they need one (and, indeed are sometimes told so by University tutors!), when they don't.

    Yeah I understand that, thanks for checking anyway

    I don't suppose you're offering to take a look at them? ;-)
