    Am I allowed to use a few good sentences from my personal statement for my UNIQ summer school application in my personal statement for UCAS? Or would this be classed as plagiarism?

    Your UNIQ personal statement won't be on any public database (unless you've posted it somewhere) so it should be fine. I know that UNIQ uses UCAS for its applications (or at least it did when I applied) so that might possibly add it to some internal database (although I doubt it) but if it does, it would be attached to your name so they'd know it's not plagiarised.
