How to Finish a Personal Statement

Here are some great tips for finishing your personal statement on a strong note:

  • Don’t include too much new information at the very end. Your conclusion should follow naturally from everything you’ve said previously. Try to tie your conclusion back to your main reasons for applying.
  • Talk about what exciting prospects university and your chosen course will offer you if you are offered a place.
  • Avoid clichés and dry language like “in conclusion”, “in sum”, or “in summary”.
  • Highlight or make reference to the very strongest parts of your application.
