    I am considering applying for Economics and Management at Oxford and King's (not in this cycle) and Economics, Finance and Management at QMUL (or E & M at Royal Holloway). Then straight management at UCL and LSE.

    How would I tailor my PS to cater for all of these? Realistically, if my PS mentions Economics AND Management will it hurt my chances at UCL and LSE if I go for only Management there? They don't offer E & M sadly.

    Hi there. I wouldn't mention specifically that I want to study Economics and Management in my PS. Since you are applying Economics and Management course ONLY for Oxford, I suggest you just write your PS like any Management student would write but just incorporate Economics into it. It wouldn't affect your chances. You just need to know how to put it out nicely!

    Thanks Don't Oxford want a PS that's more Economics focused though? How would you do it (did you apply for Management or Econ?)

    I applied for Management only. Personal Statements are very subjective. You can try maybe putting in 60% Econs 40% Management. I think you should not put too much of Economics into it because the other Unis you applied to may misinterpret what you are actually interested in. Plus, you can't be sure that you will enter Oxford, so just be safe!
