How to make my personal statement stand out.

First of all, read as much information as you can from the University website about the programme you are applying for.

Then, think very carefully what you have achieved in the past. Remember to be reflexive and self-aware. Sometimes things got forgotten easily and students don't even realise that they have achieved so much in their lives.

Finally, put all of the thoughts in a well structured one A4 page statement (some might require two pages) that clearly states your outstanding achievements and career ambitions for the future.
