Engineering Writing Guide

Where To Start
With schemes being put in place by the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) competition for university admission is likely to grow.  With only 600 words to showcase your successes, accomplishments and skills, you need to create impact. Sounds obvious, but unclear and unstructured personal statements are the number one complaint of university admissions officers in the UK.

Engineering is, by nature, a traditional industry, and developing a compelling personal statement around one of the oldest disciplines is difficult. Your personal statement will depend on your goals, achievements, and career ambitions. For any personal statement, demonstrating leadership is an absolute must; if you have volunteered for a charity or even lead a team this is a great way to demonstrate your leadership qualities.

To get into university you will need to demonstrate your commitment to the built world. But how do you create a compelling masterpiece? Where do you start? And what if you've left it to the last minute?
If you have left your personal statement to the last minute, don’t worry, you can instantly access Oxbridge written personal statement samples. Just click here to access.
