So I wish to transfer course, onto second year study, at a different university. The course is similar in some regards, but they are still entirely different. I am not sure how to talk about this in my personal statement. I feel as though anything I put will make myself seem arbitrary of capricious.
-How do I mention my passion for this new course? I imagine it is hard because obviously I must have been passionate about my first course and any passion for this new course would have only developed in this 1 year....
On top of the advice above don't use the word passion.
It's either an exaggeration (if you don't get an actual physical boner thinking about your subject) or concerning (if you DO). And it's always a massive cliche.
