    Personal Statements

    Make a winning impression with a stellar personal statement.


    A personal statement is a brief personal summary given to prospective employers and academic insitutions to help you stand apart from the competition. When two candidates are somewhat equally matched, a personal statement will play a pivotal role in deciding who gains admission or an offer. A strong personal statement can be the difference between an admission or a rejection.  Therefore, it is important that you can confidently demonstrate your abilities, background and interests in a manner that makes a positive and lasting impression.

    Depending on the nature of the order and which package you choose, you can expect to pay £10 on the Gold Package — which is a basic spelling and grammar check.

    However, our most popular package is the Diamond Package, which is a full, deep-edit of your statement. The Diamond Package starts at £100 for 1000 words.

    With this package, your writing will be transformed, fact-checked and revamped according to the specifications of your program or job. 

    It will usually take our PlaceCoach Mentors two days to fully edit and revamp a personal statement to an excellent standard.

    A standard personal statement for UCAS is 4000 character or 47 lines.
