Personal Statement Crash Course
Tackling Your Personal Statement.
How do I start my personal statement? How can I make myself stand out? Which experience should I use? Writing a personal statement is a challenging process for every single student, we are here to make it much easier!
Our mentors are qualified NHS Doctors or medical students who have been through the process and are ready to help you perfect your personal statement.
With such a limited word count, it’s vital you make the most of every character. This starts with the optimal structure.
One of the hardest parts of the entire medical school application process is communicating why you want to study medicine in such few words.
The First Line
Everyone dreads the first line. How can you make a great first impression in one line? It can make or break your personal statement.
The difference between an average applicant and a great applicant is often how they reflect. Its an essential skill.
Questions & Answers
We always have dedicated time for questions and answers. Students have plenty of time with our Mentors.
This course is a 4.5 hour (excluding lunch break) online course that covers the following:
– Welcome and introduction session with our Mentors
– What medical school admissions officers are looking for
– Analysis of the personal statement structure
– Mini break (You will need it!)
