Summer – Fun, Sun and Personal Statements!!!

student

With lots of  schools and colleges breaking up this week, and all the recent freak weather (sun!) we have been having, it looks like summer has officially begun! However if you are planning on applying to University in September, then this is prime time to start writing your personal statements! Here is a handy article on tips on writing a personal statement.

However, if you want more hands on help then why not come along to one of our Personal Statement writing workshops on campus at the end of this month/start of August? We will run through activities to help you think about what to write, and will look over your personal statements and let you know what the admissions tutors are looking for! There are limited spaces so book up now!
