    Hi,
    Can you tell me if in my personal statement I can write for both Ecological and Environmental Sciences (http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergr...amme&code=CF17) and Health, Science and Society ( http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergr...amme&code=2D45) or they are very different?

    If they're at the same uni they're probably different. Generally it's a good idea to pick one and stick with it. You don't want to come across confused on unsure of what you're applying to study.

    Hi gaofto,

    Whilst it is good to keep your options open, in your case, the 2 subjects are quite different and will be difficult to incorporate in 1 Personal Statement. Think carefully about which subject you really like and try to stick to it. In order to make your choice take into consideration topics taught in the course, personal interests, previous experiences.....all should tie in together into a statement that really shows your interest in the subject and your enthusiasm and passion to undertake further study.

    You might want to check out this vlog, which gives you tips to write your PS.

    Hope this helps, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any question!

    See the advice here: http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergr...s/how-to-apply
    On applying for more than one degree

    And http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/undergr...onal-statement on what to include in your PS

    Both your choices at Ed would be able to see that you had another application - you need to speak to Edinburgh to find out if it will be a problem before getting into writing your PS
