    This PhD studentship is everything I want.
    The application process requires a 500 word statement describing;
    - Why do you wish to work in this field
    - what attracts you to the programme

    I have plenty of time to work on this, but if anyone has any suggestions towards anything else I could add like dos and don'ts also examples from statements that got you accepted into competitive studentships.

    Thanks guys

    Examples are the worst thing to use as every uni is looking for different things and has different requirements 500 words isn't a lot and the questions are very straightforward. Think about why this field and what you hope to achieve with your work (realistically). In terms of the program think of very specific things that are unique to the program and why they're specifically attractive to you.
