Personal Statement conclusionWatch
I've written my personal statement, but I'm having trouble writing a conclusion.
Anyone have an tips of what to include? [i have no idea what I want to do after uni, so that's out =/]
Use a good quote, which might sound cliche, but if you do find a good one that sticks to the overall personal statement that would be good.
If you haven't already included in your P.S. why you chose your homeland (UK) to study, it'd be a good place to include that.
But overall, the conclusion should be a spot-on fade-out of the overall personal statement, something that sticks to the rest of the text.
Dream and Reality was a bit cliché, but I think it illustrates I know what I want to do and what not, concise, rounded it off and stopped me ending on ice-skating! Actually, my favourite part of my PS was my ending sentence, I do not like the rest of it.
"Overall, I consider myself to be a hardworking, creative student who is motivated by challenges and can gain personal benefit from new experiences, and I feel that a university degree in Politics will be a great foundation for a successful career in the future, in whatever field that may be"
(b) You do need a proper conclusion. It should be upbeat and draw it all together and highlight why you want to study your subject, without repeating what you have previously written.
(c) It wouldn't be a good use of the space to say things that are true for everyone, say how excited you are, say how much you are looking forward to new experiences or merely make uncorroborated claims about yourself.
