What to include in your personal statement
Personal Statements | Birmingham City University
The personal statement is your opportunity to convince academic admissions tutors of your suitability for the programme. You can change the order to highlight the areas you feel are most important to your application and create a natural flow for the reader. These are some suggestions, you may not have everything under every heading and some may not be relevant for you. If the university itself made a difference in your choice - what was this? You can talk about work experience, volunteering and extracurricular activities in more depth here, but make sure you are evidencing key knowledge or skills needed for this course and your future career options. What are your career aims?
