    Hi,
    I most likely will be applying to a mixture of biomed and clinical sciences, esp with the intention of getting a transfer into medicine (eg bradford to leeds).

    1) Im confused on how to write about both choices at once, even though they are quite similar. How would i write about both so that my personal statement doesn't seem biased to one?

    2) what type of work experience should i do and talk about in the personal statement for this? Should i talk about the work experience I've previously done for medicine (eg shadowing a junior doctor) ??

    Thankyou!

    First off, you shouldn't really be writing PSs for more than one course. Biomed courses that are accredited are for a career in the NHS. Those that aren't are academic courses. You need relevant work experience for the former but not for the latter and should really be talking about your academic interest in the subject for the latter. You may need work experience for clinical sciences courses depending on what they are. Basically you need to have a good think about what you'd like to study, whether the course is academic or vocational and what the requirements are.

    Thankyou, the thing is I've only been looking at courses which allow transfers to medicine, (eg after the first hear you can transfer to the second year of medicine). This is why it's even more confusing!

    Well you still have to impress the admissions officers for the course you're applying to study. They won't be impressed by someone who doesn't seem to know much about the course they're applying to study and actually wants to study something else.
