    Hi,

    I'm really struggling on my personal statement for my master's application for international human rights law. I am hoping to get onto the course at the University of Liverpool, I've completed everything but my PS, just wondered if anyone is on the course of has done a similar PS and could give me any tips please?

    I have hardly anything in the work experience department in relation to this course as I was initially interested in teaching.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ellen

    Hi Ellen,

    Obviously, I do not have the benefit of attending the course at the University of Liverpool but I may be able to offer some advice.

    What made you choose this particular masters? Is the subject something that you're really interested in?

    Write about what made you change your mind about the direction of your career. Moving onto a masters in Law is a big step away from teaching - unless you want to teach international human rights law.

    Do you have any work experience in teaching?

    If so, then there are an abundance of transferrable skills that you could write about in terms of human rights law. For instance, the attention paid to the Diversity and Equality Act in the professional standards, and the use of the PREVENT strategy. You could talk about how these affected any work experienced you completed and how they tie into International human rights law, or what effect they have outside of the UK borders? If any.

    What the university wants to know is why you are a good candidate to study at this level. Use what you do have and consider its implications for what you want to study.

    I hope this helps - even just a little bit, if you'd like to get in touch for further advice, please feel free to!

    Kind regards,
    UniAdmissions
