Religious studies personal statement

Hi guys, I'm currently a Year 13 student writing my personal statement, and applying to do theology/religious studies at uni. I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or things to make sure I include that are subject specific? If it helps I study Buddhism within my A-level which was also the focus of my work experience so I definitely plan to discuss that, however my EPQ doesn't really link to theology. Thank you in advance :smile:
Hi there,

You should include any examples of coursework you have completed, modules you have enjoyed and how these relate to the course. You're definitely on the right track with referencing how your work experience also links to your studies. We have a guide on our forum which has some other great tips, here's the link >

I think the main thing to remember is to talk about your passion for the subject!
