UCAS personal statement online creator

Applying to St Mary's? Join our online personal statement one-to-one feedback sessions

Our friendly Schools and Colleges Officers read and provide feedback on personal statements throughout the year, and they’re here to help you perfect your final draft before the January UCAS deadline. Please make sure you submit your draft when prompted, so that we can read it beforehand and give you the best guidance possible.

If you haven’t started your personal statement, but still wish to apply for 2023 September entry, that’s okay! We’re here to point you in the right direction.

What is a personal statement?

Your UCAS personal statement is your opportunity to tell universities about your suitability for the course(s) that you hope to study. It is part of your online application to universities. You only write one personal statement and it is available to all the universities or colleges you have applied to.

In your personal statement you need to demonstrate your enthusiasm and commitment to university level study and, above all, ensure that you stand out from the crowd.

You can enter up to 4,000 characters (this includes spaces) or 47 lines of text (this includes blank lines), whichever comes first. You do not have to use all the space provided.

Once you complete the personal statement creator we'll email you a copy that you can use on your UCAS application.
