I'm trying to fill in the gaps for my personal statement, like doing more community service and applying for internships etc.

One thing I'm a bit stumped on is how to show that I have 'entrepreneurial spirit'.

Why do you need entrepreneurial spirit? You are applying for a degree not a job.

It's something my teacher says I should demonstrate in my personal statement? I'm not too sure either

Unless you're applying to a very niche business course that teaches you to be an entrepreneur, this is unnecessary. Your teacher has just found a nice buzz word.

The above posters are right. You don't need to do this. In fact, unless you want to start your own business, or lead a newly-formed department in a large company, having entrepreneurial spirit, like perfectionism, would be seen as a significant disadvantage for a junior employee to have.

Totally irrelevant quality-would be nothing more than a waste of characters on your personal statement

If you can't think what to say about how you are an entrepreneur, you aren't an entrepreneur
