How to Write a Brilliant UCAS Personal Statement

How to Write a Brilliant UCAS Personal Statement


Tuesday 28th May at 2:30pm  Hosted by Simply Learning Tuition Consultancy

Simply Learning Tuition Consultancy are running this half term workshop for all Year 12 students looking to get a head start on their university applications. Their guest speaker is an Education Adviser specialising in University Admissions.

Often seen as the most challenging aspect of the university application process, the UCAS personal statement is an opportunity for students to market themselves, but in only 4000 characters. This can seem like an Everest-style challenge. There is no magic formula for this highly academic document but in this engaging and practical workshop students will gain a full understanding of what admissions tutors are looking for.

Students will leave with:

  • A clearer understanding of their own personal statement content and an action plan for an organised structure for their UCAS personal statement.
  • Confidence and excitement about what to do next!

Places are restricted to 8 students to allow for a fully tailored session and maximum results.
