University Applications

I’m very happy to help you with your UCAS application. I won’t write your personal statement for you, but I will give you a clear idea about what to include and how to structure it. I’ll advise you about your spelling and punctuation and generally how to make it sound good. I’ve been doing this for fifteen years and so have seen literally hundreds of drafts. Talking to university admissions tutors makes it obvious that the best personal statements are more than a glorified list of achievements. They want to know what you’re like so they can decide whether you’ll succeed on the course you’ve chosen at their university. If you are passionate about what you’re applying to study this is easy. For those who aren’t so sure it is a lot harder. Sometimes the process makes people realise they haven’t actually picked the right subject, but how much better to know this now than once you have forked out fees for your first year. Soul-searching and research are the first steps to a successful application but once you have got that far I can almost certainly help you to show yourself in the best possible light.
