    Statements of Purpose

    Make an unforgettable first impression in style.


    Similar to a personal statement, a statement of purpose gives you the chance to explain to an admissions tutor or employer your eligibility for a course or position. The subtle difference between the two is that a statement of purpose is about what you want to do, while a personal statement is about who you are. In other words, a statement of purpose explains why you want to study a given subject topic or conduct research or take on a role, whereas a personal statement explains why you are the right candidate, with reference on your own personal attributes.

    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 statement of purpose to an excellent standard.

    A statement of purpose is usually around 1000 - 1500 words, but this varies for different universities.
