Hi,

(For context, I’m applying for a construction course and I’m currently studying Business.)

My work experience options are:

1. Virtual work experience with a contractor outside of the UK (takes a few hours to complete). I completed a task that is relevant to the course I want to do.

OR

2. A five week virtual work experience with a well-known contractor in the UK. I didn’t complete any tasks that are relevant to the course I want to do, however I have gained a Silver Industrial Cadet Award.

Which work experience should I put in my PS, in order to impress admissions tutors the most?

Thanks

You don't need work experience for your PS - you should focus on extra reading etc. instead
