All students are required to complete a personal statement before they submit their UCAS application. Though the grades are very important, students have quickly come to realise that it's the personal statement that really nails down your place. While a personal statement is ostensibly a chance for you to talk about yourself and your interest in studying whatever course you're applying for, realistically, it's the chance for you to show your passion for the subject and a Forensic Science personal statement is no different. Before you embark on your own Forensic Science personal statement, we recommend you look at some previous Forensic Science personal statement examples beforehand. Reading some Forensic Science personal statement examples will give you the chance to learn what to include in your statement, what tone to use and how to structure the overall statement. Your personal statement doesn’t need to be pages and pages long (in fact, you only have 4,000 characters), but it should be a clear and concise statement that conveys who you are, what you're passionate about and what you hope to learn. If you find yourself struggling, then we recommend including the following three elements in your Forensic Science personal statement: Talk about your love and passion for Forensic Science. Any relevant work experience in the world of Forensic Science. Any achievements, academic or otherwise. Make sure whatever you're including links back, however tenuously, to Forensic Science where possible.
