HE Guidance: Tips For Personal Statements With University Of East Anglia
September 26 @ 13:00 - 13:45
In this interactive webinar UEA 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.
UEA will discuss with your students what makes a good personal statement. In particular, the focus will be 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 planning to apply to university.
Preparation or Pre-Reading: We recommend that students prepare in advance some questions relevant to their potential HE application and, if they are at this stage, 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 to the school. Further details are here: Connecting in to a Channel Talent Event (Please Click)
We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event. The sessions are generally limited to 3 to 5 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience. In this event there will be three groups of schools taking part increasing the opportunity to participate.
