I'm an Austrian student and I'm going to apply for Chemical Engineering. The trouble is that I don't know how to start my personal statement. What shall I write at first? Any advice? Which was your first sentence?

You should rename this thread "Personal Statement - ChemEng" - you'll probably get a lot more help that way.

Generally people start with why they are interested in their chosen subject - chemical engineering in your case. Though it's not always a good idea to launch straight in with "I like chemical engineering because...", have a look at a few example personal statements to get an idea of how to start.

this was my opening line:


I am captivated by the diversity and depth offered by a History degree; attracted by the way it encourages us to be analytical of the values and patterns of past societies.


the advice I was given was to start in the present tense and then explain why you have this current feeling - it got me offers from nottingham, durham, york and an interview at Cambridge so must have done some good!!
