    I'm currently trying to write my personal statement but hoping to apply for French and Scandinavian Studies at Edinburgh and French and ab initio German at the rest of the unis because Swedish isn't really offered anywhere else. I'm struggling to find a way to cover my want to study all three languages with out parts of it becoming irrelevant for certain universities. Any ideas or help would be really appreciated -thanks!

    Make it general
    Any experience list in all three of your languages/areas of study
    Don't write anything naming the course etc.
    Mayb focus on key skills required for language courses (this will then not matter for the different languages)

    Focus your statement on the course(s) you most want to study, but talk about issues that are relevant to all of the courses. Edinburgh will be aware of the fact that few other universities offer a similar course so will be entirely used to seeing statements that are not entirely relevant to theirs.
