    Hello all,

    I am currently trying to write my statement, and I am unsure if it is okay to name specific uni names in my statement as I've heard from some it's a "no-no" - I'm not showing favoritism or anything but essentially just naming the places where I did summer schools placements. I was going to name them just because they're good Uni's and I thought it would make me look more impressive than just saying "some Universities"

    Yay or Ney?

    Thanks!

    I did a programme throughout year 12 at a particular uni and I referred to it in my personal statement - if its a course you did there don't see any problem with including it. (I did PS a while ago now as just done first year at uni so might be out of date )

    In that sort of situation, it's fine to name a university

    It's fine in this situation but if they're taking up valuable space then don't.
