We’ve put together a few pointers to help you ace that UCAS personal statement when applying to Confetti.
- Dotted ‘I’s’ and crossed ‘T’s’
Your statement should be well written, articulate and flow well – double check your spelling and grammar, and give it a good proofread before you press send.
- Give us a reason
Tell us why you want to study with us; it’s your personal statement – share some of your experiences that have encouraged you to apply.
- Goals and dreams
Tell us where you want to be post-Confetti – what’s the dream job and how do you think a degree in your chosen subject will help you in the future.
- Creative background
Outline your experience to date. Whether it’s paid or unpaid, huge project or helping-out-a-mate, let us know what you’ve been involved in.
- Interests, hobbies and skills
Be sure to list your interests and skills, including any instruments you play, languages you speak, and sports or other activities you participate in.
- Work experience
Make sure you include any work experience you’ve done (both paid and voluntary) that’s related to your course.
- Awards & Recognition
Involved in extra-curricular activities? From Young Enterprise to World Challenge, Duke of Edinburgh Award to National Citizen Service, if it demonstrates that you’re reliable and responsible, tell us about it.
- Check, check and check again
Is everything complete? Use this list to check you’ve added everything you need to and that it’s all spelt correctly. Give it to a few people to read – you may have missed something and the more people that see it, the better.
