    I am applying to Universities and will be applying to Foundation Science Year courses. However, I have a few questions regarding my personal statement. Firstly, do I need to be specific in my personal statement or could I aim it towards healthcare in general? Secondly, if I need to be specific, would it be possible for me to include both Optometry and Pharmacy in one personal statement? The reason for this is that not most universities offer a foundation year for optometry, therefore I'd like a back-up - that being pharmacy. How would I include both in one personal statement?
    Thank you x

    As you have a few different interests keep it general and maybe briefly mention that you have an interest in a couple of different aspects of healthcare.

    Do you know anyone who has applied to a foundation science year course? Yes, that is what I am hoping to do. Should I talk about healthcare in general and then briefly mention optometry and pharmacy?
