Does anybody have any ideas of what to put for an architecture personal statement?
I've already put an opening as to why I want to study it, a paragraph of my architecture work experience and an ending. Any ideas? Thanks

For most subjects, you're advised to read around your subject. Maybe find a book about your favourite architect or style to read and discuss? 3/4 of your statement should directly relate to the subject you want to study. Do any elements of your current study link to architecture? Can you explain what you enjoy about them? What are your future aspirations, and what do you want to achieve from your degree?

However, I suspect for architecture, most of the focus will be on your portfolio. So long as there are no glaring issues with your statement and it mostly focuses on why you want to study architecture, then you should be fine.

Yup, this is about right - I received four offers for architecture (the rejection was on my portfolio) and my personal statement only really made reference to architecture in the first paragraph and then maybe twice after. It really does all hang on your portfolio (that is, assuming you're applying to unviersities that request portfolios). There's a couple of architecture personal statements here that you can have a gander at and see what they've done!
