Sometimes called an application essay or statement of purpose, the personal statement is a critical part of your university application.
As I explain in my guide to writing a personal statement, not only is it your main chance to explain your reason for applying, it is taken very seriously by the university admissions office as evidence of your past achievements, your commitment to the course, and your English writing ability.
Put simply, you do not want to spend years working hard to improve your English and your GPA, only to fail to get your place at university due to a badly written or ineffective personal statement.
I have reviewed thousands of personal statements written by students hoping to enter top global universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, MIT, Keio, and Stanford. I have also discussed the role of the personal statement with university admissions officers as part of my work in higher education. As a result, I’ve reached some conclusions about what an effective personal statement is and isn’t.
Take no chances with your personal statement!
Now I’d like to share this knowledge with you and improve your chances of getting a university place. My personal statement editing service consists of a two-stage process.
In the first stage, your personal statement is reviewed to ensure that it:
- Gives a clear reason for applying
- Indicates your strong interest in the subject
- Highlights your best traits and achievements
- Explains how you meet the entry requirements
- Explains how the course will help you in future
- Presents a logical argument
- Supports claims with evidence
- Includes all necessary information
- Does not include irrelevant information
In the second stage, your personal statement is professionally edited so that it contains no errors, sounds persuasive, and looks outstanding.
