Structuring your UCAS Personal Statement Although there is no officially recognised structure that a UCAS personal statement must conform to, it must flow in a logical manner and contain the information summarised in the introduction. A standard order for your UCAS personal statement could be: _ Introductory sentence introducing why you would like to study your chosen subject and why you would be suitable to study at university _ Give specific examples of your academic experiences and explain how these have influenced your choice of subject _ What your future goals are _ Explain what responsibilities you have had in and out of school _ Detail of work experience you have and how it has help developed you as a person _ Include a concluding sentence summarising your application
