Ucl Masters Personal Statement

 
  1. I am an international applicant, currently preparing my application for an MA in Human Rights at UCL. I am a little bit confused about what to write in my personal statement, especially for postgraduate degree. Most samples out there are for UCAS application. Hence, I need some tips on writing PS for postgraduate degree. Is it similar to UCAS one?

    And I would appreciate if anyone of you could provide me tips specifically for UCL.

    Many thanks.

  2. International applicant over here too! I looked at the MA in Human Rights as well, but ultimately ended up deciding on another course instead. Struggling a bit with my personal statement as well, lol.

  3. I'm also trying to find some good examples of postgraduate personal statements, I'm applying for the LLM (Masters of Law) but I'm particularly interested in doing a specific LLM in Human Rights Law. My UCAS statement too is vary vague and wouldn't get very far when applying for a postgraduate programme.

Personal statement

There is a section in the application form for you to enter a personal statement (3,000 word character limit) or attach a statement as a separate document. The personal statement allows you to express your motivations and suitability for the programme you are applying to.

You should consider the following questions when writing your personal statement:

  • why do you want to undertake the programme or research?
  • what are your academic interests?
  • why do you wish to study at UCL?
  • what educational experience do you have?
  • do you have any relevant work experience?
  • have you completed any extracurricular and voluntary activities relevant to the programme?
  • what are your career aspirations?

Some programmes request that you supply programme-specific information in your personal statement. To check if this is relevant to your programme please consult the relevant programme in the Graduate Prospectus.

Your personal statement should be no longer than two sides of A4 paper.
