Not sure what to write for my personal statement......Watch
Hi I am applying for Criminology at Uni 75 - criminology and 25 - law, I have done most of my personal statement but i'm unsure on what to write for how my current course relates to what I want to do which is extended diploma health and social care level 3. Also, I have been researching peoples personal statements for criminology and law and they have a lot of experience with court rooms etc and I don't have any of that. Does anyone know what can make mu personal statement better? Thanks.
The courtroom business is only up to you. This isn't like applying for History of Art and noticing that everyone else has been on unaffordable trips to Florence. You could sit in the public gallery at your local courts tomorrow.
Something else you should want to do is to look at first year modules on the courses you fancy and identify points of commonality. Talk then about being interested in social exclusion or youth crime or whatnot.
See if you can find a reading list and mention a couple of the texts listed. And you can never go wrong with the OUP very short introductions:
