Where To Start
Writing the personal statement is one of the most difficult, daunting tasks for any potential student. With only 600 words to showcase your successes, accomplishments and skills, you need to create immediate impact.

Getting your personal statement right sounds simple, but it isn't. Success is more than just getting the spelling correct or having an excellent academic background; it is about what you say and how you say it.

It sounds obvious, but unclear and unstructured personal statements are the number one complaint of university admissions officers in the UK.

But how do you create a compelling masterpiece? Where do you start? And what if you've left it to the last minute?
