Personal Statement
What is a personal statement?

The personal Statement is a letter you write to universities to introduce yourself and show your best side

The questions below will guide you to write a complete statement about your motivations.

01 Why have you chosen this course?

Supporting Questions:

What does attract you to this subject? When did you start to like it? What inspired you?

Tip:

Avoid general answers such as: "I want to study engineering because I've always wanted to become an engineer". In this case, the real question is "why have you always wanted to be an engineer?". You can think about what inspired you and when you first started thinking about this area.

02 Why would you like to study in the UK?

Supporting Questions:

Why have you thought about studying in the UK? What do you like about the UK education system? How do you think this experience will benefit you?

Tip:

Deciding to study abroad is an important step which can say a lot about you, like the fact that you may be an adaptable and open-minded person. Point out these traits and make yourself stand out of the crowd.

03 What can you say about yourself?

Supporting Questions:

What hobbies do you have? What is your greatest passion? What are your skills and how did you develop them?

Tip:

Your achievements - give examples of school projects, volunteering or work experiences where you developed relevant skills for the courses you are applying to. Your hobbies and what they say about you - for example, if you like to play football, this may show that you’re a good team player; if you like trips in nature, you may be adventurous.

04 What are your future plans?

Supporting Questions:

What is your career plan? How will you be able to reach it by doing this course? What do you see yourself doing in 5 years from now?

Tip:

Write about how you see your career. Point out how your course can help you achieve your future plans.

05 Why should you be accepted?

Supporting Questions:

If you could say one thing about yourself that could impress the admissions team, what would it be?

Tip:

Now's your chance to really shine. Make your Personal Statement stand out of the crowd by showing why you are a great candidate. You can write about your biggest achievement so far or what do your friends like about you the most.

06 If you already finished high-school, what have you been doing since then?

Supporting Questions:

Did you work or volunteer after high-school? If yes, what skills did you develop and how could you use them during your course?

Tip:

If you are over 21, your professional experience is the main factor that will be taken into consideration in the evaluation of your application. It’s important to write about any work or volunteering experiences that would be relevant for the course you are applying for. In case your experience is not relevant for the course, justify why you decided to change your career direction.
