    I'm 22 years old.. I was studying a different course before but it didn't turn out that well for me as I was constantly depressed/stressed, did not enjoy the course and wasn't receiving any support from my advisors. I'm currently in the process of applying for Psychology for the following year, as I enjoy science and maths and I would love to get into clinical psychology in the future.

    I was wondering whether anyone had any advice on what I can do to make my personal statement stand out as I didn't study psychology at a-level but I am interested in studying the course and I have done an online course in child psychology. I am also currently looking for any work experience which relates to the course. Also will student finance cover me for the course as I've already used up 2 years of student finance!

    Any advice would be great

    You'll be better off asking about student finance elsewhere, but my understanding was that they will fund 4 years in total...

    As for psychology, focus on why you are interested in studying it. You don't need work experience. Check out the links in my signature below - there's an article on writing psychology PSs
