What are UCAS personal statements?

For UK-based universities

UCAS personal statements are a chance for students to show a UK university why they should be offered a place to study a particular subject there.

Academics or more?

Whilst academics are important to talk about, it is just as necessary to talk about who you are beyond your grades, too. We can inform you on what this may look like.

Page limited

It is critical to note that the statements must not be longer than 1 page: anything beyond this will not be read. You can visit UCAS for more information...

Deadline!

All statements must be submitted through UCAS by 31st January 2024 at 18:00 (UK time). However, the earlier the better as universities accept students on a rolling deadline.

The process of submitting a personal statement:

1. Research university courses interested in 

2. Pick a course & write statement on why this subject

3. Check and edit statement for approval

4. Submit to your top 5 university choices

Note for those that are considering medicine or dentistry:

You (normally) will have to choose 1 university out of the 5 where you will do a back up course i.e. something that is not medicine or dentistry.
