Politics Writing Guide

Where To Start
On average 10,000 students apply to study politics each year, therefore, the personal statement is the only part of the application process in which you can distinguish yourself amidst the intense competition. Setting yourself apart from the thousands of students applying for a politics degree requires a unique personal statement. You need to demonstrate your ability to grasp political thought, international relations, comparative government, and public policy.

The personal statement provides admissions officers with a quick and easy way of understanding your suitability to study at university.

Admissions officers want subjective criteria to make a decision, and in most cases the personal statement is the best source for this information. A well-presented personal statement focused on your personality and leadership qualities may be the difference between acceptance or rejection. To get into university you will need to demonstrate your commitment to the political world.

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.
