Make Your Personal Statement Relevant
It is very important that the content of your personal statement is relevant to the courses you are applying for.
It is of course important to talk about hobbies and interests, as they shape your personality, but you don’t want this to take up the bulk of your personal statement.
It is also very important to show why your experiences and qualifications are relevant to your course. It is not enough to state that you have completed a placement at a hospital if you are applying to study medicine.
You need to talk about your experiences on the placement and why they have encouraged you to apply for medicine. This example can be transferred to other courses and experiences of course.
