Ebook Writing your personal statement – £11.99

art personal statement

Your art personal statement is your first chance to tell the universities and colleges why they should choose you – it might be your last!

When I interviewed students at Edinburgh College of Art I have to say, the UCAS statement didn’t play that big a part in the selection process.

However, on my visit to Queen Margaret University to hear about their Costume Design and Construction course, I discovered that they use it as a first stage selection tool. Meaning, if your statement is seen to be weak you will get no further, however strong your work might be.

So it’s imperative to get it right.
