Personal Statement

Ok Narnia,

 

I'm clearly in need of some enlightenment. What is a personal statement and what do you use if for. I haven't been asked for anything like that so far but I'm just at the end of the first year of my Foundation Degree.

I have to write my personal statement for tomorrow and I'm slightly stuck.........................I can't find the one i did for the Fd, so can't tweak that one! What can I put in it so i don't sound too daft???

 

 

This is the one I wrote for my FD (a while ago!) hope this helps jog the old grey cells......lol

Thankyou for sharing that, lalaloulou.

 

I would have been quite intimidated by having to put someting like that together before my course even started.

 

I have, of course, since had lots of practice in reflecting on my strengths/areas for development/targets for future learning so I am getting better at it.... slowly.....

 

At least I will have an idea of what it is if I am asked to provide a personal statement in the future.

 

Cheers

I don't remember having to write a personal statement either for my Foundation Degree/BA/EYPS (although hali may well put me right on that one). However I did years ago when I started my FE teaching training. It was quite strange at the time and now that I'm contemplating applying for a Masters course I'll have to write one as part of that process. Never was one for singing my own praises... :o

I had to do one and can't find it to show...sorry...but basically it was saying how proud I was of my life achievements without showing off! It wasn't very long! :oxD

Also I had to say why I wanted to do the course.....sort of a mix of academic and personal stuff to make you sound like the perfect candidate...which we all know Narnia you are anyway.. :(
