I am applying for MSc Management at UCL, Imperial and Bristol (and I may add another university).
I am in the middle of doing my applications now,
and I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on what shoud/needs to be included and emphasised in the Personal Statement?

Unfortunately there is no set in stone formula for writing a personal statement, but personal statements are often an applicants best way to sell themselves to their prospective universities. What makes you stand out from the crowd? Why should they make you an offer?
Universities tend to look for personal statements which include aspirations/goals, how the course will benefit you and how it links to your aspirations, what makes you a good option for them, related experience and how this will help you do well in the course and how that could help the university etc etc.
Make sure it is your own work (they do get checked for plagiarism), honest and shows you as the person you are.
I know this advice is somewhat generic but like I said previously, there isn't really a concrete answer. If in doubt, try using TSR's personal statement helper before you submit it to the universities you are aplpying to. You can find some details at http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/anno...php?f=303&a=89 but please note that this isn't a service to write a PS for you, it's just to help you with the one you have.

Thank you for the advice!

Also thanks for the link, didn't know such service existed!
