If there's no requirement to submit a personal statement, it's unlikely that your statement would get looked at if you did write and send one. In my experience, admissions teams will be following specific criteria when considering an application so will only look at the documents that fulfil that criteria.

If there's space on your application/covering letter to add more information, you can always put a line in that a full personal statement is available upon request if required - then the university can contact you if they do want to see more.

Hope that helps and good luck with your application!

As Keele says, Universities are usually pretty hardcore about ignoring any additional information that comes in, like additional references, CVs, covering letters, for reasons of fairness. Have you double checked that there isn't a free text question in the application that implies the statement, eg 'Please state how you think you are suitable for this course'?
