Hey, I want to know how I should write my statement for the Foundation year for business? I am kind of confused because I ain't sure what I should write about.

You should write about you, and only you! Noone else!

Of course, but should I follow the normal rules to write the statement as I would if I will apply for undergraduate?

If you're applying for 2021 entry, then... quickly. You should write it quickly.

I would just write it as a normal personal statement for business.

The main questions you should be answering are:
- Why do you want to study this subject?
- How do you show your interest in the subject outside of the classroom?

You can have a little bit about extra-curricular things, but only a bit - the bulk of your personal statement should be focused on the above.

Yes - it leads on to an undergraduate course at the same uni, right?

Hi! I applied to do business / marketing and management at university this year, here is how I structured my personal statement.
Paragraph one: how I found out why I wanted to study business
Paragraph two: book I read about economics/business
Paragraph three: how my subjects relate to business
Paragraph four: extracurriculars
Paragraph five: what I look forward to at university

Hope this helps, and best of luck with your personal statement

Is there any chance that we can have a discord call?

Promoting off-site discussion like this isn't allowed on here.

Aside from that, I don't know much about business courses, never studied it at school, don't know anyone who wrote a personal statement for it and the personal statement should be your own work anyway. So I can't be much help at all.
