This is a template personal statement suitable to draft university applications to universities or graduate schools.

Personal statements are an essay prepared by a prospective student applying to some university or graduate school. They are a core component of university applications to UK universities as part of the UCAS applications system.

A personal statement is supposed to outline the prospective student’s motivations for applying to study a particular subject and course. It is also supposed to elucidate why the prospective student is applying to a particular university. It is also supposed to help you articulate what skills and experiences you possess which will help you succeed in the course or subject you are applying for.  

This template personal statement asks the prospective student to answer particular questions which will help demonstrate the student’s motivations for applying to their chosen course, subject and university.

Some of the questions that will be asked of you if you use this personal statement template include:

Why are you interested in this subject and is there any particular area of the subject you are particularly interested in?

Why specifically are you applying for your chosen course(s)? (Is there anything about the course structure, any modules part of the course that particularly interested you in this particular course?)

Does anything from your previous studies relate to the course you have chosen? (Include details such as any articles, essays you have written, or projects you have undertaken that have reinforced your motivations for studying your subject of choice)?

Please describe any extra-curricular activities you have participated in (e.g. any sports teams, debating, model united nations etc). What skills have you developed from these experiences that will help you when studying your subject of choice and how have these experiences reinforced your intentions to study your chosen subject area.

How to use this document:

Before drafting the personal statement, you should research the course(s) you are intending to apply to. You should research items including the course structure, modules, and any qualities, skills and experiences you may need for admission to the particular course.

You should also research to find any word count, character limit or other limit imposed from time to time on your application.  

When writing your personal statement, you should write with a formal tone using proper English. You should avoid using any slang when drafting this personal statement.
