​Writing your personal statement

This is your chance to tell us why we should offer you a place to study with us.

You'll have up to 4,000 characters (or 47 lines) of text, which is roughly an A4 page. Tell us what interests you, why you'd like to join our diverse community of students and experts, and what you've done before that will make you a great student.

Take a look at UCAS' personal statement guide, and don't forget to proofread!

What happens to your application?

UCAS checks applications for fraud, and for similarity in personal statements. Don't worry, if your application is truthful and the personal statement is all your own work, you'll be fine.

They'll then send your application to us to decide if we can make you an offer or ask you to an interview.
