Helping your child with their personal statement

Alongside your child’s predicted sixth form qualification grades and their teachers’ references, the UCAS personal statement will help university admission tutors decide on whether to offer your child a place to study with them. This is particularly important when interviews are not held as the personal statement may be the only opportunity your child has to showcase their talents, accomplishments and interest in applying for the course.

The UCAS personal statement is an important part of the university application process; it’s also the part many young people find hardest to complete.
