    On your personal statement I would say consider thinking and writing about :
    1. why you want to do psychology?
    2. what do you understand by the study of psychology?
    3. how will this degree assist you in your future ambitions?
    4. what qualities do you have that will make you an ideal student on this course?
    5. What journals do you read? American Psychological Association? British Psychological Society? World health organization psychology
    6. Have you done any volunteer work with an organisation or have you done internships with a psychologist?
    Explore these points and you may very well come up with a good first draft.

    Short, introductory paragraph.

    Which parts of psychology do you find most interesting? Memory? Neurological?

    Any particular studies you particularly enjoyed learning about? What reading have you done?
