Week 25 – University session

This lesson had students making a start on their personal statements.

Students were asked to brainstorm their initial ideas/ thoughts they would like to include in their personal statement.

  • Personal qualities/ skills/ experience
  • Have you completed any work experience
  • Interest in the subject
  • Why do you want to study this subject
  • Have you been inspired by any relevant books?
  • Achievements

You can only write one personal statement, so it is important that you do not mention a uni or college by name. Make a list of the things you want to include and start drafting now!

demonstrate you’re a great candidate and you have the skills and the qualities they’re looking for.

Make sure you do not copy – their software detects any similarities and this could jeopardise your application.
