    hi i was wondering to apply for psychology is there anything which i could do to make my application better? like for dentistry people say that its good if you show them that your good with your hands and therefore can write in your personal statement that you have made a dress or sell paintings or whatever... is there anything like that for psychology? or just work experience and good interpersonal skills?

    i applied for psychology last year and received offers from all 5 unis....just say what about psych interests you and how you first became interested....mention books that you have read and the topics you find the most interesting and why....mention the subjects you do and how the transferrable skills you learnt from them will help you on the course....work experience, try getting some at a hospital or hospice or volunteer at an elderly home (i had work experience at a Clinical Psychology Service and at a hospital) and be sure to say the skills you learnt from doing this and how it would help you on the course....then mention your extra curriculars both inside and outside of school and say what you learnt from them....then close on a positive note
