Volunteering, work experience, participating in clubs/societies in school, even reading an academic book related to the field related to your subject would help.

Where are you thinking of applying and what for?

Hi C050503,

There are plenty of things to include in your University application/personal statement!

Here are a couple of ideas:

Volunteering
Paid work
Work experience
Roles in School – e.g. Prefect, Head girl/boy
Musical instrument grades
Additional qualifications you have gained
Books/articles/podcasts that you have watched of listened to relating to your subject of interest
Extra curriculaires – Sports, hobbies etc.
Any achievements you are proud of
Aspects of your current studies that you have particularly interested you

Think about the skills you have gained from these experiences and how they will help you in your future studies and career paths and how you can demonstrate your interest and suitability to the course you have chosen to apply to.

The Student recruitment team here at Aberystwyth have recently launched an online resources hub which has videos on how to write a personal statement which you may find helpful.

Hope this helps let me know if you have any more questions!


Rebecca 😊
