How to Conclude a Personal Statement

Here are some top tips for finishing your personal statement on an emphatic note:

  • Don’t include any unrelated, new information at the very end. Your concluding statements should follow naturally from your main body. Instead, highlight or reference the most compelling parts of your application, perhaps in a more emotive light.
  • Discuss the exciting prospects that higher education and your chosen subject will offer you if you are given a chance to study with them.
  • Leave out the clichés and over-used expressions like “in conclusion”, “in sum”, or “to sum things up”. Instead, be economical with your words and show the reader you are concluding without telling them you are.
