    I'm applying to a dual honours course for photography and counselling as my first choice university, as well as single honours courses in social work and photography as my other 4 options. Does anyone have advice in writing personal statements of different subjects?

    No because that might be the stupidest degree I’ve ever heard.

    Those are so different that it may be tough to write a PS that's an amalgamation of the two.

    Social work is a vocational course, your PS should be totally focused on why you want to be a social worker and the skills you've got that are helpful. It would be impossible to use a PS for social work for other subjects, or use a PS for other subjects for social work. You need to decide now before you apply

    I would say it is best to have one choice and apply for that one course, try starting to write a personal statement for both and whichever one is the easiest to write should be the one you should choose. That is why I did and now I am applying for Literature and Drama.

    Hope it helps x]

    Don't want to be rude but is this 3 year uni degree leaving you with around 27 k + of debt worth it.
    Would you be better of going into a niche programme/ course or going into an apprenticeship be better for you?
