    I am currently writing an initial rough copy of my personal statement, and I was wondering if I can include the odd word or sentence in Japanese.
    . For example, right now I'm writing about my interest in Japanese origami, so can I write it as 折り紙 and then follow it with the translation? Also should I put in the transliteration (origami) as well?

    Thank you in advance(^-^)

    No, I believe not. The UCAS character set will not allow it.

    In any event, you are writing an application in English and should use an English vocabulary.

    Okay, thank you very much.^-^

    I'm currently only typing it in word as I'm not applying until the next academic year. I'm just writing it in preparation for college^^
