How to write personal statement
Hey Olaoyinoluwa This is a good question...

Your Personal Statement is a chance for you to give us a chance to get to know you. You can structure this however you like, however I'd probably recommend writing it in an "introduction, main body, conclusion" format. Introduce your love and passion for the subject, and talk about what has inspired you to study it in Higher Education. In the Main Body, show off things you have done outwith your studies (any sports teams/projects/tutoring you've done maybe?) and talk about how these will help you on your course. For example, you could say "I have been the captain of my local football team for the past 6 months. This has taught me how to be a driven leader and improved my communication skills, which I know will be extremely important on a course such as Business Management". While you write your main body, you're looking to show us that you *know* what the course is and that you have done your research. Show us that you know what you're applying for and that you will succeed on the course You can then conclude by reiterating the reasons for wanting to study and your passion for the subject area.

Which subject area are you interested in? Have you had a think of what universities you'd want to go to, as some may have differing guidelines for writing your statement.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

I'm interested in studying International business at Sheffield Hallam University.

Hopefully I will be admitted.

Regards,
Oyinolaoluwa.
