Your Media personal statement is the most essential cog in the machine in your UCAS application. Every student has to write a personal statement before they can be accepted onto a university course.
Your Media personal statement should convince a university that you would be a successful candidate for their university course. It’s a high-stakes portion of the application, so make sure you take your time when writing it.
Don’t worry too much about writing War and Peace, just make sure that you hit the key points about why you want to study this course. Less is more, but your Media personal statement only works if you include the essentials, which brings us neatly onto the next section...
Your Media personal statement should be a statement of intent to study at the university you're applying to. Try to refrain from listing universities or courses by name, as your Media personal statement will be used for all applications, but speak of your passions for the subject area and what you hope to achieve from studying the course.
Three things that are absolute must-haves for a Media personal statement are:
Relevant work experience
Any extracurricular activities you have done
Your passion for Media
Don’t be afraid to speak openly about your achievements or about yourself in general. Lots of students struggle to write about themselves, but this is exactly what a university wants to see, so don’t be bashful when writing your Media personal statement.
