PhD synopsis:

Lack of access to adequate credit for working capital and long-term investment purpose has been cited as one of the major constraints that SMEs face in their operations in Kenya and other developing countries.

In this study, the moderating effect of entrepreneurial intensity on the relationship between micro finance strategies and the growth of youth enterprises will be undertaken.

How to write an academic CV

An academic CV typically has a different format to a standard CV, because it is used for something other than a standard job application.

The core components of an academic CV depend on what you are writing it for.

If you are applying to study a PhD or you are a PhD student or graduate applying for a research post, your CV might include:

  • Contact info (this may include both your home and university address if you are currently attached to a university in some capacity)
  • Research interests (a brief statement explaining what area you are interested in researching)
  • Education (highest first)
  • Research experience (if any)
  • Work history if any – section off relevant work experience (which should appear first) from irrelevant (which can appear under a separate heading labelled ‘other’)
  • Additional skills (i.e. any relevant skills not covered elsewhere)
  • Professional memberships
  • References
  • Appendix – you may like to include a synopsis of your Masters or PhD here

Although this CV has an academic purpose, the information in your contact section is the same as for a regular CV. Find out more in our CV writing guide.

If you are applying to study for an academic qualification (such as an undergraduate degree or Masters and you have been asked to send in a CV with your application, your CV might include:

  • Contact info
  • Education (highest first)
  • Research experience (if any)
  • Work history if any – section off relevant work experience (which should appear first) from irrelevant (which can appear under a separate heading labelled ‘other’)
  • Additional skills (i.e. any relevant skills not covered elsewhere)
  • Professional memberships
  • References

In addition, you are likely to be asked to write a personal statement of between 500 and 1,000 words. Every university’s requirements are different. There are lots of good examples of personal statements on Personal-statement-examples.com together with a writing guide.
