Writing a well structure and powerful personal statement can really help highlight your achievements and personality! In this class, students will be guided through how to structure a personal statement and what content to include. Students will also be shown how to make their statement unique, engaging and relevant to the post/course that you are applying for.  

A personal statement is a key component of the application process to a college or university and no application would be complete without one, therefore this class is perfect for those students who want a chance to write the best personal statement possible.
