Postgraduate Writing Guide

Where To Start
When applying for a postgraduate course, your career goals must be clearly aligned with your professional and educational experiences, and more importantly, you must write an exciting and dynamic personal statement.

The first stage is to identify the perfect university in terms of course, location, potential, research options, and cost. Secondly, you need a winning formula to get into university – a wonderful personal statement.

Most institutes ask a series of questions. These free form questions are the opportunity to display your talents and suitability. Every personal statement should maintain a clear focus on your selling points. You need to tackle each question in the personal statement differently and make sure you describe yourself in a way that does you justice.

A well-presented, well-considered personal statement focused on answering the questions within the application form may be the difference between acceptance or rejection.

Written by our editors, the postgraduate personal statement writing guide takes you through proven and effective activities, helping you work towards a powerful and innovative personal statement.
