Postgraduate Writing Guide

Creative Thinking Workshop
Creative thinking is where innovative thoughts begin as you mentally travel through your life and let the ideas flow. We feel that a vivid presentation of what motivates you to study is the first step to an excellent personal statement.

The single most important point to remember is that you cannot change who you are or what you have accomplished – but what you can do is showcase your successes, achievements, and skills in the personal statement.

Below is a short questionnaire to capture all these great things that make your application unique.

1. List the top 10 reasons why you wish to study?

2. Who has influenced you the most to study?

3. What are your future intentions and goals?

4. What have been your greatest accomplishments?

5. What areas of the course would you most like and why
