How to Start Writing a Personal Statement for University

Like with any long, written piece, you will want to begin by planning. Here are the three main points you will want to consider when planning to write an undergraduate personal statement for university:

  • Make sure your passion for your subject comes through. Talk about what you have read around the subject, what interested you about those works, and why you want to do further study.
  • Talk about what prospects you are hoping for at university and beyond should you be granted a place, and demonstrate your excitement to realise this.
  • Talk about any extra-curricular achievements and activities that show you are the best candidate to be accepted onto your chosen course.
