    Hello All,

    I need some advice from those of you who may have shared similar experiences. I dropped out of uni 3 years ago as I was struggling and had sudden bereavement within the family. I am finally feeling ready and motivated enough to go back to university to study marketing. However, I am stuck with my personal statement - any tips or advice or what I can include? How can I go about my gap in between?

    Thanks in advance!

    Talk about why you want to study the subject, what your specific interests are and what you've done to develop them. Try our PS builder tool (see my sig). Don't worry about addressing the gap unless you have positive and relevant things to day. Let your referee deal with it.
