What's Included In The Course?

The course beings with an overview that explains the role that the personal statement plays in your application. Then, we move on to tell you about the personal statement itself, and the requirements that it needs to meet.

This course will teach you how to write a personal statement that is not just well-written and succinct, but also unique. After completing this course, you will be able to illustrate why you want to be a doctor, what you've done to explore the career and the personal traits that you and doctors share.

Writing Style

The biggest mistake that students make when submitting a personal statement for me to review is that of writing style. Students can have great experience, yet a poorly written statement with an unappealing style will simply end up in the bin. We teach you how to get to the point a cut out the fluff. 

This is probably one of the most valuable lessons you will learn in life. Not only will it open your eyes to just how weak your current style of writing is, but will teach you a skill that you can take forward through the rest of your academic career. Writing is known as one of life's 'force multipliers', those skills that diffuse into all other areas of your life to help you succeed. 

General Structure

We begin by looking at what the personal statement is trying to achieve, as well as the three things we need to get across to the reader. The first step in drafting a personal statement is gathering information. This phase is mostly concerned with capturing everything you've done to apply to medicine, and more importantly the lessons selectors want to see that you have learned from these experiences. This step is crucial. 

We then go through how to improve your English, so that you can portray yourself to the universities to which you're applying in the best possible light.

Example Personal Statements

We provide you with a detailed personal statement work-through, that will not only give you an idea of the common mistakes that people make on their personal statement and how to avoid them, but it will also show you the layout of the personal statement and what it should contain. 

References

We also include two lessons on references, and how to make sure that they are the best they can be. References are an extremely important part of your personal statement, as they give the university an idea of who you are in a classroom. 

Work Experience And Extracurricular Activities

Work experience and extracurricular activities are a crucial part of your personal statement because they can help your application stand out and show how interesting you are as an individual! On the course we take you through work experience and extracurricular activities in-depth, to make sure that you included everything you should have. 

What To Do After You Submitted Your Personal Statement

This stage of the application is not talked about often and can leave candidates confused about what to do next. Thankfully, Dr Hilton goes over what you can do after you submitted your personal statement, and how to prepare for what's coming next!
