Description

Course Overview

We believe all students have something important to say about themselves and their reasons for studying a subject. We also believe that every student is unique, not least their vision of the world around us. But when composing a compelling personal statement for admission into university, students need to know, really know, what is being asked of them. This master class will provide on overview of the personal statement requirements.

Our role is to give students the highest quality guidance and advice. All candidates bring their unique perspectives and experiences to the table. When grade attainment is taken into account, the personal statement can be the students’ most compelling opportunity to achieve the university offers they deserve.

What's Included?

  • Why is it important – weight carried in the overall application process

  • Purpose, structure, length and guidelines

  • Key selectors: what specifically are admissions teams looking for

  • The personal statement as a basis for interview

  • How to handle single honours v/s joint honour

  • The role of motive and evidence:

  • Evidence of what works and why

  • Evidence of what does not work and why

  • Timelines and next steps
