As our experts will tell you, thinking carefully about one’s personal statement is the first step towards a successful university application. A correctly structured personal statement should follow a logical narrative about the applicant and convey their enthusiasm for their chosen subject. It is important to impress university admission teams and show them that you are the right fit for their course. After all, learning to highlight one’s best qualities is a skill that will come in handy as an adult when it’s time to apply for a job.Top School & Uni has already supported many students to help them gain entrance to a university that’s the right fit for them. We use specialist advisors from top universities on all our courses to guide our students through their application to success.
Many universities do not interview their prospective candidates and so the personal statement is the only chance to tell the university about your passion for the subject that you are applying for. For other universities (including Oxford and Cambridge) the personal statement is one of the pieces of information that decides if you get invited to interview. It is currently one of the most important parts of a UK university application.
