    Anyone have any tips or advice when writing a personal statement for Fine Art?
    The standard PS advice applies.

    Admissions staff are looking for 3 things from a PS

    a) that you know what you're applying for (so if you're applying for fine art degrees that have a substantial element of life drawing compulsory without mentioning life drawing then you look like you've applied for the wrong course)
    b) that you have the interest and enthusiasm to stick with a course for 3+ years (so have demonstrated that you research and do extra activities related to art outside your structured curriculum)
    c) that you have the necessary skills to succeed on the course (for fine art this would be evaluated by looking at your portfolio so isn't a big deal for your PS)

    http://university.which.co.uk/advice...esign-students has some other ideas of things to avoid and what to focus on
