    Can I re-use my personal statement for a Postgraduate course that I applied to for 2017 entry but wish to reapply for 2018 entry, reason being I decided to work a year in a relevant position. I don't plan on copying it word for word - only a few paragraphs. It's not so much that I'm too lazy to change it again. I just believe it was worded really well. However do you think the uni will even notice or bother to check that it's the same as from my last application?

    I know that for undergraduate there is a plagiarism checker, but is there one for PG applications?

    Thanks!

    That’s fine. If you update the parts that need updating then it won’t be a problem.
