    If you have been offered places at Unis for September, accepted a place, and then decided to turn it down, would you have to write out a completely different PS if you wanted to apply the following year? Would you not be able to include even one line from your previous one? Also, do you have to write a Personal Statement for the Open University? Thanks.

    You can reuse a statement and open uni doesn't need them

    Would it not be flagged as plagarism? Because it's already in their [ UCAS's] system previously ?

    They can match both personal statements to your name/number so it wouldn't be flagged as plagiarism because you're not using anybody else's work.

    As for the Open Uni you just apply for each module on their website and as long as applications for that module are still open and you have finances set up (either agreeing to pay upfront, in installments, or apply for student finance) you'll get a place. They ask for no information other than facts about yourself and your highest level of previous education. They only really question you if you're applying for a higher level module and don't have any previous university study to prove that you're ready for the higher module.
