UCAS logoWhat should I put in my personal statement?

STudent studyingTell us why you want to study your chosen Flexible Combined Honours subjects.

Demonstrate academic awareness of your subjects and the ability to write in a critical academic manner.

You may be encouraged by your school or college to include academic quotes. If you do, explain why you find the quote of interest, relevance or value etc. Don't just leave it to act as a dramatic effect, or keep us guessing about why you want it there!

Similarly you may be told to list books and articles you have read. Don't just list items, but tell us what you have learnt from these, how they have influenced or inspired you etc.

Talk about your interests and achievements, and what you have gained in terms of experience and skills from these, even how these may impact on your academic life and way of thinking (e.g. you play in a band and this has raised thoughts about cultural, ethical and sociological issues).

If you have any work experience (paid or unpaid) or work placements, tell us about the skills gained and how it has contributed to your personal development.

What personal qualities do you have and how these may help your studies and life at university?

In short, tell us about yourself and what makes you smile in the classroom.

Do you have any career aims? Are your intended university studies relevant to these?

If you are taking a gap year, tell us what you are going to do in it.

Do not be tempted to use 'ready made' statements that can be found on the Web. We can tell ...
