    Hi, Im really struggling trying to write my personal statement. I would be grateful if anyone could give me some tips for what to write when applying to these subject areas. Also I need major help since Im not sure how to incorporate ALL of these courses into ONE personal statement.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    In short, I don't think you can. I think you need to decide on one of them and apply for that at all your choices

    As stated above you can't really make one all-purpose PS. If you have work experience however in an architectural or construction firm it would work for all three.

    For architecture focus on things like any talks you have been to or articles you have read (if you haven't done this get it done quickly). If you are really stuck for ideas talk about your favourite architect or building, but for God's sake don't make it someone/something really famous (Richard Rogers, Zaha Hadid, Heatherwick etc. for architects or the Shard, Cheesegrater etc. for buildings). This sticks out as being amateurish.

    As for the other two I would focus on more economics-based things, such as articles from the Economist etc.

    Good luck!
