    I am trying to write my personal statement but I am applying for a range of these courses at different universities:

    - English and Film
    -English Language and Media
    - Media Communications

    I am finding it really difficult to write a personal statement that offers enough for each subject. I am not sure how to structure it or how to refer to the course that I would like to do - as there are 3 different ones.

    Is anyone else having the same problems? I really need some help.

    Thanks

    Focus on the crossover and common aspects. Devote at least one paragraph to an exploration of comparison- eg a film's media impact, or a book adapted into a film, or the language used in a film script.

    Thank you. So rather than talk about each subject, discuss how they all work together? Could you give an example of this?

    How should I refer to the subject?
