Kings College London KAAS personal statementWatch this thread
I am trying to apply for KAAS which provides affordable accomodation to only 1300 undergraduate students. It requires students to submit a 2000 word personal statement which needs to include the following:
Please provide us with a personal statement explaining the reasons why you should be considered for the scheme, including the consequences if you are unable to secure a room below £169 per week.*Max. 2,000 Characters.
Any idea how to start it off and what to include? The personal statement needs to be very strong for me to appeal and I have no idea where to start and how to make it not sound pitiful (or does it have to? for me to have a better chance?). ALSO, is accomodation provided based off a first come first serve basis because it's already been a month and a week since the applications are open and I'm getting a bit worried as I have only firmed kings two days ago due to waiting for one more uni to give me a response.
Hi! As someone who got KAAS for next year, I'd say list on a piece of paper all of the things that would disadvantage you. Then in your personal essay write how having KAAS would help to eliminate those struggles and how not getting KAAS would make your study harder. Don't worry about making it too pitiful
Yeah I did mention how a full maintenance loan will not be enough for me. I started it with "As a child of a working class single mum migrant...". And yeah, SSA a quite hard to get to but that's mainly because they are releasing rooms gradually and they come in first come first serve basis. The central accom is generally more desirable that why I didn't bother and just went for Angel Lane hah
