Hello, I'm currently apply for the Educational Psychology course 2018 intake, and needed some advice for the personal statement. The last time I wrote a personal statement was for my undergraduate course 4 years ago so i'm a bit rusty. I've read that they want you to include applications of psychologial theory ( I assume part of this is what you've learnt in work experience), and knowledge of the UK education system, however I have no clue on what sorts of things I should write about the education system. Should this statment also include references to outside of academia interests, as for my undergraduate one I wrote about my hobbies and interests. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

In reality, you don't really have space to talk about hobbies

You should talk about your awareness of the EP role, application of psychology in your current role and skills that you have that are helpful when considering training to be an EP. I would say those are the most important things to consider in the PS, but you may also be able to imply things about the UK education system through that as well. In terms of specific things about the UK education system, if you have read about any recent changes/innovations within education, you could talk about those, but I wouldn't say there's set things to mention

See above for PS advice. You need at least 1-2 years full time paid work with children and young people with special needs really
