How do I write a good personal statement?Watch
If you're writing a statement that should apply to multiple courses, it's a good idea to focus on what you have gained from experiences, not the experience itself. This way you're able to mention experience that is relevant to everywhere you're applying while not excluding either course. For example, if you have work experience relevant to one of your courses, mention what skills you developed from this that might be applicable to both courses, such as working independently.
If you need more specific help with your personal statement, your current school probably has someone that can help, perhaps with the careers services. They will be a good place to get some pointers as they've helped write more personal statements than anyone.
Hope this has helped a bit,
What are the courses you're looking at? See if there's overlap in the skills/qualities needed and write about those. A PS for different subjects in the same subject area (I wrote one for sociology/social policy/politics/social research data) is easier than one for completely different subjects (a friend wrote one for geography/maths/law). The latter is still doable but will be obvious you applied for different subjects.
Additionally, if you don't know what course you want to do, do you know what career you want to go into? Perhaps you have decided that you definitely want to work with animals, or perhaps you have a love of numbers, or perhaps you know you want to help people- so although you may not know an exact job title, you can think about the types of work that goes on and how certain courses will help you get to that job. Then you can talk generally about the skills you want to develop through a course and why.
Here's a good resource to have a look at too: https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/a...onal-statement
