    I don't mind at all!!

    Okay, so first off for this course and at this uni and possibly a few others like Birmingham you will have to or be offered to do two personal statements because they assume you wont be applying for Liberal Arts for all your unis. My advice is in your UCAS personal statement is to write concisely and about a variety of subjects and your passions, mentioning how all your extra curricular activities have boosted your independence, teamwork, commitment etc. Then in your additional personal statement, tailor it to the course its going to, focusing on the place and the modules they offer to hit the key words that'll make it pop! and talk about how things around you have influenced your interests for example i was born in northern ireland so i talked about how the conflict there influenced my interest in politics

    I got 4A's for my AS Results and whilst I think this helped because I was predicted high grades i think my personal statement pushed me over. Try to be really concise and link everything together and use your life to make yourself sound really interesting!

    Contact me if you need any other advise or you want me to read your personal statement. I'm happy to help! I know that because its a new course not many people understand so ask me anything you need!

    Good to get it sorted now! Good for you and try to have a first draft done by the end of the summer!

    GOOD LUCK

    Hi! I will try to answer your questions.

    How does it work in terms of majors/minors and modules??
    Are you wondering about Liberal Arts degrees in general? Because I can only tell you about King's but I guess most of them are quite similar. At King's you choose from a range of modules in your first year. At the end of the year you pick a major and a minor. You can also combine a major with a number of different subjects, which means that you wont pick a minor.
    What are the differences between the liberal arts course offered at Exeter, Bristol, Surrey, Kent, Essex?
    Out of the ones you listed, I only applied to Kent. The biggest difference between Kent and KCL is that there is a compulsory year abroad at Kent, I think.
    Which universities want you to write 2 personal statements?
    Most universities require you to write a second personal statement. Since the Liberal Arts degree is fairly new, most universities assume that you have applied for other courses as well. So they want you to write a second ps which is tailored for Liberal Arts. I applied to Durham as well and the second ps was optional so it differs from university to university.

    Good luck with making your choice. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!
