Still considering your university applications?Watch
I am a 2nd Year Marketing Management student at Lancaster University so in this thread I am hoping to share my experience of applying and I hope you can relate. If you have any questions then please post below .
MY APPLICATION STORY
I looked around at least 10 Universities and ended up applying to some Business Management and Marketing courses whilst others were Marketing Management. Therefore, it can sometimes be difficult to make your personal statement not overly specific whilst showing your genuine interest for one area. So if anyone needs any advice then please ask!
With the UCAS deadline on 15th January 2018 you need to ensure your personal statements are being written and references are underway but please do not stress. Universities just want to hear about you, your experiences and why you want to study your chosen subject in higher education - so be yourself.
TOPS TIPS FOR MANAGEMENT RELATED PERSONAL STATEMENTS
Unique opening sentence
Use a real life/industry example
Link to your experience
Show off the skills you have learnt from a range of extra-curricular activities
Understand the importance of your chosen subject in today's world - link to current issues
Concentrate on your strengths
What you can bring to University
Ensure it flows
Get someone to proof read but make sure it still is your voice
Read it aloud
Be yourself and write honestly and accurately. Universities are interested in YOU so I wouldn't think too much about trying to appeal based on what you think Universities want to know because a mixed and diverse University is the best!
If you would extra guidance on personal statements then make sure to attend our Personal Statement Masterclass at Lancaster University on 3rd December 2018 http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/events/bu...nt-masterclass.
Let's start asking questions!!!! I am here to help.
