Hello. I recently registered to attend a program related to my course which will be in December, however I want to send off my UCAS application before then. can I talk about the program on my personal statement and what skills I am expected to gain/have after completion ? or is it a waste of my characters ? . I heard admission tutors do not like students talking about things they haven't done or achieved. What do you think ? ... thanks in advance

I think you should mention it because it shows you will be gaining some good skills and that you have been organised enought to arrange it (and enthusiastic enough about the subject to do so). So it says something positive about you as a person, but just don't waffle on about it too much.
