On my UCAS application my 5 choices are;
King's - Liberal Arts
King's - International Development
Royal Holloway - Liberal Arts w/ Year abroad
SOAS - Korean and Development Studies
Westminster - Development Studies & International Relations

I'm aware that these are slightly varied subjects. 2 liberal arts options, and the rest development studies/int'l development with some Korean thrown in there too. All the advice articles and guides for writing personal statements talk about how important it is to tailor it to the course that you're applying for, so I'm a little stuck as to how to do this, given that I have to write about Korean, Development Studies and Liberal Arts. Any suggestions?

Eventually you will have to choose 1 of those 3 subjects areas so you may as well choose now before you apply, pick 5 options that match the subject area exactly and write a strong personal statement about that 1 subject rather than weakly putting together a shoddy hybrid of 3 different subjects onto one statement.
