Can ne1 recommend anything that I would be able to do - Geography orientated, that i woule be able to put on my personal statement nextyear. please??
you don't have to spend money on going travelling like some people suggested - in fact i was discouraged from just listing the countries/places i've visited unless there's something particularly interesting & relevant about it. subscribe to a magazine (geog review, the geographical etc) & say that, maybe do some work experience. i was in the 'landscape consultancy' dept at the county council which in itself wasnt v relevant to my ba geog degree i was applying to, but i said that i was introduced to the planning dept, the gis system, and saw the applied effects of aspects of geog on peoples lives. to really impress them you could attend RGS meetings & mention what the subject of discussion was! (i was going to join the RGS,but joining fee was a bit steep)
