    Hi everyone.

    I will apply for the MSc double degree in Global Media and Communications at London School of Economics next year.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me with some advice on the personal statement? I haven't been able to find any examples or advice online regarding my specific program.

    For the last couple of years I have work as a communication consultant in Denmark - is it something that you will recommend to include in the statement?

    I have a bachelors degree in Political Science from the University of Copenhagen and have taken several courses on the relationship between media and politics.

    I hope to hear from you.

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    I'm gonan go ahead and say yes, you probably want to mention your job. If you know what courses you will be studying in your degree, you can see how relevant it is, maybe mention if you have relevant experience/interest in certain areas.

    General advice for personal statements:
    *Show your interest in the topic you are applying to study
    *Talk about relevant experience-but in the context of the SKILLS you gained from it, and how you found it interesting (if it relates to the degree your applying for...and if you actually did find it interesting!)
    *Maybe a bit on specifically "why LSE"
