    Hello,
    I am currently a sixth year student, studying to get my highers to get into uni.
    I'm starting to write my personal statement and I was wondering what did you include in yours, any tips and what work experience and volunteer work is good/essential for getting in or standing out?
    Thank you for your help, hope to hear from someone soon.

    If you check out my signature below there is a new PS guidance document which you should find useful. If you have any further questions or if anything doesn't make sense in that then just let me know

    Some sort of work experience is essential, but it can be any sort of caring role, it doesn't necessarily have to be in a hospital or directly related to what you're wanting to study. Don't forget to look at local things rather than just national organisations. Even sitting in on a support group or shadowing a professional for a day is really useful. There are a lot of good ideas here:
