    Hey guys,

    Im hoping to apply for the PG Dip PA studies.

    Im really struggling writing a personal statement at the minute. No idea where to start or how to link in my education/employment in regards to the role. Im a psychology graduate, with 4 years experience in health and social care (some voluntry i.e. working in a psychiatric ward, community support worker and paid empolyment - carer and NHS radiographic assistant)

    Has anyone been successful in applying? Would really appreciate some structure guidance for the personal statement.

    Thank you! x

    The uni website is the best place to look for info about how long the statement should be and what they're looking for. If there isn't any guidance I'd say about a page is good. Talk about why this uni and course, how it fits with your career plans, what you've done so far that will help and that has lead you to this course, anything unique about this course and uni.
    Start with you, then the course and career plans, then the uni and finally a sum up.
