I am a current 3rd year bio undergrad looking at applying for PhDs at the moment. But I'm having the issue that I have no idea what to write in my personal statement/ cover letter as I have little/ no research experience.
I had an internship lined up for this summer but obviously COVID got that cancelled, so I'm now pretty stuck.
Those of you doing PhDs did you have/ were you expected to have much research experience before you started?
I'm a 3rd year undergrad looking at applying now for bio phDs starting next year but I can't be sure what my chances are without research experience.
I had a very brief non lab based placement last year and was hoping to get better experience this summer but obviously COVID happened and so my summer placement was cancelled.
Without experience i have no idea what to write in my personal statement/ cover letters to actually make them worth looking at.
Those doing a phD were you expected to have/ did you have much experience when you applied?
