Are you passionate about your subject?

November 8, 2013

We’re kicking off our personal statement advice posts nice and early in the year   It’s never too early to start thinking and preparing your personal statements.  We’ll post tips throughout the year on the blog, and we also tweet and retweet relevant articles, so why not follow us @ SAndrewsColCam

To kick off we have an article from the Guardian’s education section.  What makes this a particularly interesting read is the fact that Uni Professors give their views on what you should and shouldn’t include, how you need to express yourself, and they even go as far as telling you which words you should or shouldn’t use!  If you have included passionate in your draft personal statement then you should definitely follow the link below and find out what they think about passion and History (or any other subject, for that matter!!

Although the article takes History as its starting point in terms of what to put and what to avoid, almost all of it is applicable across the subject spectrum.  It’s well worth a read as it allows you to read the thoughts of those that will inevitably read your statements. We’ve also included one for Medicine, Law, English and Fashion.  Enjoy…
