    I am considering doing economics with different things at different unis. What is the best way of coming round this problem. As in LSE i am applying form economics and mathematics and at Bath Economics with international development. Should i just write about economics in general?

    Also what should i include in the statement. I was thinking about the credit crunch but that is not very unique. Please can i have some suggestions.

    We don't offer suggestions on how to write it - we just advise once you've written it.
    I'll move this to the right forum.

    You really shouldn't apply to different courses at different universities with the same personal statement. Find a course you like and stick with it - and from the sounds of it, you should go for Economics and then simply pick the electives/modules which suit your interests.

    Apply for Economics and tailor your personal statement towards the areas that interest you most. Then when you get to uni, there will be flexibility to take modules in different areas of Economics that will fit your interests. Applying to different courses at different unis is not advisable. Each individual uni will be skeptical of your interest in their course and you will likely receive all rejections if you're apply to the top 10 unis. And writing more than 1 personal statement is a pain too.

    Best to start with a broad area of the subject and narrow it down closer to the time.
