In the final 20-30% of your statement you should concentrate upon your activities outside of formal study.
These activities should indicate to admissions tutors that you possess the kind of talent and personality that will engender a successful period of undergraduate study.
Some examples include:
- Personal organisation
- Team working
Examples of the type of extracurricular activities would be appropriate to include here are listed below:
- A caring role for a family member
- Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards
- Gap year plans
- Part-time paid employment
- Part time voluntary employment
- Millennium volunteer
- Membership of the Scouts
If these activities are directly relevant to your choice of course it maybe appropriate to give them more prominence in your personal statement. Perhaps in the first section when you give your reasons for applying for the course. Consult your tutors or a career advisory service if you feel it to be appropriate.
