    Tips for personal statements??

    Show the unis that you're an interested in the course (academic) and are an interesting person (extra-curricular & relevant skills gained). You can find examples fairly easily on google. Start with academic bits or something you can write a quality paragraph about, then do the introduction & conclusion (the hard parts).

    Have a look at the Personal Statement Advice forum - the stickied threads there will guide you to a lot of information.

    https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/per...ake_some_notes will guide you through what to include and help you draft up from bullet points into a full statement.

    There's an entire forum for it, to which I have moved this thread.

    Just don't plagiarise or start with "from the dawn of time I've wanted to be..."
