    So, I'm planning on applying to do French at university and I really have no idea what to include in my personal statement that is specific and looks good for French. What literature looks good? Should I mention films, and what films would sound best?what about work experience, because I have zero- does this matter or should I do some volunteer work and if so, where looks best? As you can probably tell I'm pretty stressed about it all

    I also applied for French last year. I was the same as you, had no work experience whatsoever! I wrote about what I did at school to make up for that, for example some committees I was part of and what I gained from them. I also never included anything about literature or any films. I basically wrote about how valuable learning a foreign language can be haha. I was really stressed about having no work experience too, I live in a really small village in the countryside and it was impossible for me to find anywhere close enough to do some relevant work experience! I'm sure you'll be fine!
