Try and mention all of the skills that you have without referring to any course in particular, so don't be all like 'My interest in architecture was reinforced by...' just speak in general and say 'my interest in design was reinforced by...'. All of the courses you're applying for are very creative and somewhat mathematical so just focus on that type of thing. Don't forget to really show you're interested by providing evidence!! (books, lectures, etc)

Hiya!

This is a good question! I can forward you to our "ask me anything" thread for Personal Statement Queries ran by our Student recruitment team at the university! They've seen thousands of personal statements and have lots of great tips that they can help you with!

This is the link- https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...8#post91660288.

The thread closes today!

Having read PSs that do this sort of thing, it makes you look really indecisive if you are not talking about the subject of the department the admissions tutors will be in. You can't write a good PS for such a wide range of subjects.

Narrow down your course choice before you write your PS, or write multiple PSs focused on the individual courses to help you decide. You can also submit separate PSs to the unis, but they don't have to accept them
