    Hi,

    so I'm applying for both computer science and electrical engineering course.

    I have previously applied for computer science and have the personal statement for that.

    my last sentence is:

    I believe that I have the passion and prerequisite skills to be successful on a computer science course at university.

    Can I change it to:

    I believe that I have the passion and prerequisite skills to be successful at university.

    Do you have any other suggestions

    thanks in advance

    I don't think you can write one PS for both these subjects PQ?

    Generally your conclusion should come back to why you want to study the subject and are interested in it.

    Why don't you put I believe that I have the passion and prerequisite skills to be successful on this course at University?

    But you do need to make sure that the new PS is specific to the course you are applying to and relate your exeriences to the area/course and to why you want to study that. It is like an application form for a job - you don't just send out your basic CV, you tailor the application for what you are applying to.

    In my opinion I think it's fine as I've talked both about computer science applications and also hardware side of things. I've demonstrated interest in both fields.

    It would be great if someone could check this for me though
