    I'll be studying physiotherapy next year (hopefully) and I was wondering what are the most necessary/important things to include in my personal statement for the subject - I'm also finding it hard to express my personality throughout the personal statement.

    I've looked at a few university links and they've mentioned:

    Reasons for choosing Physiotherapy
    Work Experience
    Interests & hobbies/Relevant extra-curricular experience
    Teamwork/leadership qualities
    Your long-term ambitions: why exactly do you want to be a physiotherapist?

    Really struggling to form sentences or get a start on some of these questions, however, I have completed half of my first draft. Could anyone give me any tips or ideas on what would be good to include?

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried the personal statement builder?

    If you're struggling to form sentences, don't. Make a mind map or list of bullet points of ideas. People usually find this easier on a large sheet of paper with coloured pens, but you could do it on the computer if you must. Just write very brief ideas - even if it's just one or two words. Even pictures might help.

    Personal statements take a lot of drafts to get right. You're not going to get something perfect straight away.
