IMPORTANT: Personal Statement

If you are considering applying for university you will need to complete a UCAS application. Part of the application is the Personal Statement. Admissions teams who read your Personal Statement will want to see evidence you are committed to your chosen subject. Regardless of where you finally choose to apply to, any online lectures, talks, activities you take part in, no matter which university is offering them is valuable to sign up for. The talks are for the most part generic meaning while they may 'plug' their university a bit, the information in the talk is helpful for understanding that subject area. What you gain or learn from engaging with these online talks is what the admissions teams want to hear about in your Personal Statement. Register for talks/tasters etc and then think about what you learnt from listening.....make sure you've got evidence of your commitment to your subject!!!
