HE Guidance: Tips For Personal Statements With Lucy McDonagh From The University Of Winchester

3rd November 2017 @ 10:45 - 11:15



In this interactive webinar Lucy McDonagh will help students to plan and prepare to write a good university Personal Statement as part of a UCAS application by offering a university perspective.

The session will consider the importance of the Personal Statement and cover approaches to help students to write one personal statement for more than one university application.

Lucy will discuss with your students what makes a good personal statement. In particular she will focus on what university admissions tutors are looking for, covering the university context of Personal Statements, what to include, what to avoid, and how to get going, as well as looking at some examples of personal statements.


Suitable for: Year 13 students applying to university.

Preparation or Pre-Reading: We recommend that students prepare in advance some questions relevant to their potential HE application and to think about any issues they might be facing with writing their Personal Statement.

The IT Setup: The setup is similar to Skype, using a pc and webcam, although students take part as a group with the image projected on a whiteboard rather than as individuals in front of lots of pcs. Dedicated videoconferencing equipment is also compatible if available in the school. We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is a session dedicated to a particular college, engaging different tutor groups. If you are interested in something similar for your students please contact us via email.
