Whatever subject you want to study at uni, admissions officers will tell you one thing: You have to nail that personal statement. It’s the main way universities choose who’s offered a place, so put the time in until you’re completely happy, so the statement tells your story.

Vicki Davies, Head of Admissions at London’s University of Roehampton says: “Personal statements are how we get to know the people behind the grades. It’s vital there's a story about you, why you want to study, law, or accounting, or dance or any other subject. We need to know what drives you towards your subject.
"The number one thing is you have to write the statement yourself, it's got to be personal. We’ll spot if mum or dad has done it for you; university is your choice and you are the best person to sell yourself truthfully to us."
