    Hi guys,
    I'm applying for both Product and Industrial design courses and wanted to know, would it be bad if I didn't mention industrial design in my personal statement at all?
    The courses are very similar, despite having a few different modules..
    Would they look down on this?
    What if I just replaced product with the word industrial in one part of my personal statement, would that help?
    If anyone has/is applying with a similar situation, what did you do?

    Hey, just giving this thread a bump :bump: Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific university or course forum should help you get more responses. :yy:

    If you haven’t already found it, then university connect is a really useful way for finding people at your course/university! You can also find a list of applicant threads and courses here.

    I hope I haven't replied too late! But I'm in the same process as you and didn't know what to call it as I applied for both courses too. All I did was refer to it as 'Design, e.g. Studying Design will....' and 'This course, e.g. These are qualities I will need for this course...'. But to be honest, I didn't need to refer to the name of the course a whole lot in my personal statement so it wasn't too difficult. So far I've got offers from Nottingham Trent for Product and Brunel for Industrial so I think this technique will work fine. Hope this helps.
