Hundreds of real personal statements

Our personal statement library is filled with hundreds of real personal statement examples, organised by subject and university.

Your personal statement should of course be an original and entirely unique piece of work, but checking what other people have written is really handy for inspiration.

You can also read through personal statement examples that have been reviewed by our experts - helpful for getting some pointers on what does (and doesn't) work in a personal statement.
