Rough Plan for UCAS Personal Statement 
Intro
Start with a hook. Why do you want to study this course/these courses? Why is itideal for you? Show that you are excited about the opportunity to apply for thiscourse! (Note: ‘YOLO’ is not an acceptable reason for your choice).Remember to mention it if you have a specific plan or career objective in mind (e.g. ‘Iwant to study rocket science with a view to becoming an astronaut and learning theterrible secrets of space’). This shows the University/College that you are more likelyto stick with the course as you have something to work towards.
Relevant Interests/Experience
Hit them with any work experience, volunteer work, etc. that is directly related to thecourse (e.g. working in a library relates directly to English, shadowing a surgeonrelates directly to Medicine, drinking coffee and shouting at walls relates directly toTeaching).Be specific when talking about the skills you took from an experience; how does thismake you a better candidate for your chosen course(s)?
Wider Interests/Experience
It’s not only specific work experience that makes you a good candidate. All thosecourses, jobs, clubs, prefectships, etc. make you a unique snowflake and provideyou with skills that will be of benefit to you: time management, independent thought,critical thinking, learning to work with others without insulting them, spitting on themor running away crying, etc. Again, remember to link each thing you mention to a specific skill you learned or developed and then say how that will be of benefit for your chosen course(s).
