Full Event Details:

This section of a UCAS form can make or break the application – a pressure which makes it hard to think straight. Based on insider advice from our university admissions team, we will show what makes a good statement and give practical tips on preparing and writing a personal statement.

This short presentation will start at 3pm and be followed by a virtual question and answer session.

We will cover things to include in a personal statement to ensure you show how you are suitable for both the academic and social side of university. Students will be encouraged to start their personal statement earlier and allow plenty of time to write various drafts as they work to perfect their statement. As well as hearing some top tips on writing your personal statement, students will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

A personal statement factsheet will also be available to support the presentation and to provide a summary of what is discussed and information on how to find out more.

Institution Profile:

Schools & Colleges Outreach

Our Schools and Colleges Outreach team is here to help learners, parents and carers understand what’s involved with university study. We run events, talks, campus visits and workshops focusing on raising awareness, aspirations and attainment.

Our activities can be tailored, are designed to be flexible, and we offer a choice of locations to work around your needs. By working together with schools and colleges, we can help give learners the information and inspiration to make informed choices about their future.

Creating an academic link
If you’d like to link up with one of our academic departments, we’d be very happy to hear from you. Please contact us to explore ways that we can help your learners’ progress.

Widening participation
We are committed to widening participation. We firmly believe that everyone who has the potential to benefit from higher education should get the opportunity to study.

We’re here to support bright, talented young people to succeed at school and college, whatever their social or financial background. We can help them think realistically about how university could boost their prospects.

We are proud of our track record for raising people’s aspirations and helping them get results and move towards their goals. We have a wide experience of helping learners in groups that are normally under-represented in higher education.

Our work is targeted to involve students from lower income families, postcodes where fewer people go on to university, young people in care and disabled students.
