A Physics personal statement is the part of your UCAS application that universities are clamouring to read. Yes, your GCSE, BTEC and A Level results are vitally important when applying for university, but your Physics personal statement is what makes or breaks your application.
Your personal statement is your chance to show a university what you're all about and why you would be suited to their course.
Your Physics personal statement doesn’t need to be an epic fantasy novel or the kind of length that has the reader yawning, it just needs to be a way for you to talk about yourself, your passions and your interests alongside your reasons for wanting to study the course you're applying for.
Before you begin writing your Physics personal statement, you should look at some Physics personal statements beforehand. This will give you the chance to see what the structure, tone and feeling of the statement is before you write it.
Knowing what to include can often be half the battle. Your Physics personal statement should only contain the essentials, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start talking about some of the things you're passionate about!
The three key points you should be focusing on are:
Relevant work experience
Your passion for the subject
Make sure that your Physics personal statement captures what makes you you. Universities want to see personality in a candidate’s personal statement, so don't be afraid to show it!
