    Where a choice is offered, is it a good idea to specify which modules one will go for right in the personal statement?

    No - different unis have different rules for electives so it would be pointless.

    And fyi the deadline for equal consideration has passed now.

    As above - if you're thinking of doing this then you need to make sure that the modules/subject topics are covered by ALL of your choices (and are likely to still be available when you get to that point). Expressing an interest in a specific topic is fine - but you need to do your research to 100% sure you aren't alienating any of your choices.

    Thank you both. Actually missed mentioning that I'm applying directly to the university and my PS is for the one course I'm applying for, so I think it would make sense to mention the possible choices. (answering my own question..)

    Regardless of whether it's just one uni, it isn't necessary - unis aren't expecting you to have thought that far ahead, and there may be restrictions on what you can take, depending on popularity and timetabling
