5 things your Personal Statement needs
Your interest in the subject
You should be showing why you want to study the subject and tell us what you've read or participated in to show us your genuine interest. This could be by reading around the subject area, talking to someone in the relevant profession or gaining some relevant work experience.
Personal statements are, well, personal. so it should be original, it should sound like you, and it shouldn't be like the examples you might have seen online. Be confident in who you are and what you want to achieve.
Your value-added skills and learning
Tell us what you've been doing to develop your awareness and understanding of the subject above and beyond the requirements of your current study or work.
It's not what you've done, it's what you think about it or learned from it that matters.
Always remember to answer the question "why should we give you a place on the course?" rather than just writing about yourself – every bit of the personal statement should be answering this question.
