    So after a lot of consideration, I'm looking to apply to Computer Engineering at uni (basically electronic engineering with a focus on computer science), with the following:

    Cambridge - Engineering
    Southampton - Electronic Engineering with Computer Systems
    Warwick - Computer Systems Engineering
    Bath - Computer Systems Engineering
    York - Electronic and Computer Engineering

    The problem with applying to a mixed course like this is that I need to split my personal statement between talking about EE and CS, and I'm not sure how to begin structuring it. In my first draft, I've basically just talked about all the computer science related stuff I've done, since I've only done a bit of extra reading and Arduino practice for EE.

    Any help with writing the personal statement?
    Thanks.

    You need to split your statement between the two and maybe have a para that links them explaining why you want to study the two together.
