    Hello! I'm interested in studying Comparative Literature at King's College, London or English at Cambridge University (not sure how much of a chance I have at getting in haha) and was just wondering if anyone had any tips for writing a personal statement for English and also ideas of other wider reading/extra curricular sort of things I could do. I'm gonna start reading some Japanese Literature because I really like learning about Japan and its culture in general, so yeah. I'm going to be working on my personal statement over the summer and I just want it to be really good (especially for Cambridge). 😁

    Have a look at course structures to get an idea of what will be taught and read around those subjects. Basically you want to talk about why English, what your specific interests are and what you've done to develop them. You may also want to mention very briefly what relevant transferable skills you've gained from any extra curriculars. Try our PS builder tool (see my sig).
