    Hi,
    I was wondering if anyone at Bath Spa knows how to structure a personal statement for combined courses? I'm interested in their drama and education studies and have wrote up drafts of my personal statements but I don't know how to structure it for the combined courses? There's only so many characters you can have and its hard to fit everything in that you want to say about one subject, let alone two!
    Any help would be great!

    If you're are applying to a joint/combined course then half your personal statement should reflect your enthusiasm for *subject 1* e.g. drama, and the other half about *subject 2* educational studies. This is because 2 different admissions tutors will be reading your personal statement so both tutors need to be convinced you love their subject.

    I am in the process of applying to University just like you! I've just been to a few personal statement lectures which have informed me about everything I need to know. I can give the link to the best one I've seen by far if you like It's gold.
