    Chances are, big companies won't accept you. I mean you could try but don't get bogged down if they don't reply.

    If I was you, email smaller companies (probably offices, there are tonnes in London) around by where you live. Ask if you could do work experience or if you could observe a employee for a few days. That could DEFINITELY help bulk out your personal statement because you could talk about everything you did

    If you don't get anything, don't worry. Little secret, as someone who's already gone through the ucas process, uni's (excluding like, Oxford and Cambridge of course) don't care excessively about your personal statement, so you could definitely bulk it out with extra curricular activities (sport or volunteering) universities want an all rounder, not just someone specialised in their course but does nothing else.

    Good luck! Sorry I couldn't help more :0
