Students interested in applying to competitive courses and universities will get an insight into what makes a course competitive, what universities look for and how they can make themselves stand out among the thousands of applications received every year.
Recommended for Year 13 students who have started their personal statements
During this session our Schools & Colleges Liaison team will take an in-depth look into how students can structure their personal statement, discuss what makes an effective introduction and conclusion, and advise on editing and refining what they’ve written to ensure their statement makes an impact.
