Really!? The obvious questions that need answered would be, why do you want to study architecture, what personal qualities have you displayed that make you think architecture is right for you and why do you want to study architecture at Kingston.

There is a link to architectural personal statements at the top of the page but I don't honestly understand why someone wouldn't understand what to write by themselves.

Give it a rest eh? Dont make them feel stupid for asking a question. Have you never asked for advice? Youre response makes you sound like you think youre a cut above the rest!

The love of architecture took hold of me when I created my first house on The Sims.

My best piece of advice is never start with I.

Perhaps start with architecture is...

The best thing to do is write down anything you like about architecture: favourite architects/buildings/styles. Link it with what you do at the moment. Are there specific areas of the field you like the look of etc.

It really isn't that hard to write. In fact the hardest thing I found was condensing my PS into 4,000 characters. Remember it is personal and therefore it should flow quite nicely. If you have the passion then it should be easy to write. Make sure you don't take extracts from others because universities use plagiarism software.

Shut your cave you pig. Keyser has contributed more to this forum than you and secondly he is a good architect.

So go back up the ********* you came from.
