    UCAS - Writing Your Personal Statement

    Tuesday 19th September

    Your UCAS personal statement is a chance to show universities and colleges why you want to study the course and why you’d make a great student. UCAS put a strict 4,000 character limit on your statement, which means they are not looking for a lengthy essay but a short outline of your personal attributes, skills and reasons for wanting to study at university.

    You should start drafting your statement early. It might take a while to make sure it covers everything you want to say and you should allow plenty of time to check it through with teachers, advisers or family.
