Business Writing Guide

Where To Start
To be really successful, your personal statement must not only concentrate on your drive and credentials, but also emphasise your management ability and career aspirations. Your personal statement must be eye-catching to gain the attention of a busy admissions officers.

We know that you simply cannot settle for "good enough" when it comes to submitting your personal statement.
