What is UCAS?

UCAS is the British Universities & Colleges Admissions Service

We make absolutely certain to review and check every single statement that we look at against criteria that we know will be looked for by admissions officers at the University. We write with their requirements in mind and are incredibly successful at what we do.

Our UCAS personal statement editing service

Nothing is left to chance so we re-write as necessary, ensure that spelling, grammar and punctuation is perfect and most importantly ensure that the statement leaves the right impression in the mind of the reader.

We write the statement as if it was being written for ourselves or one of our family- nothing is left to chance and every single element that we can bring to the statement writing is brought and then some.

We may ask you for additional information if the content is light. For example: Have you been recognised publicly, privately or singled out for praise in the past? Did you do voluntary work, help people in difficult situations, help a neighbour or look after an elderly relative?

Your UCAS personal statement editing service

We help you get interviewed or offered a place at University through:

  • The correction of incorrect or inappropriately applied spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout the whole document.
  • Ensuring that capitalisation and sentence construction is correct throughout the document and that the flow of writing is easy on the eye and therefore makes maximum impact on the reader.
  • Editing sentences as necessary, reducing the amount of words in each sentence without making the meaning too brief.
  • Creating a “tone” of writing that is consistent throughout the document and conveys a positive portrayal of the applicant.
  • Ensuring that the whole document hangs together as a whole and tells a story rather than simply being disjointed sentences.

The completed document will have taken into account current best practices that are working today and have delivered success for applicants’ UCAS personal statements. For example, we will:

  • Write an interesting, engaging and above all memorable introduction.
  • Ensure that appropriate space has been given to each element of the statement and that priority is given to those areas of most impact.
  • Sell you to the University as a suitable and interesting student that will bring value to the University and become a successful ambassador for the University later in life.
  • Explain your choice of course, what you are planning to gain from it and explore possible career choices resulting from successful completion of your studies.
  • Above all, portray your very best points and give you the very best chance possible of being interviewed or offered a place at the University to study your chosen course(s).

Your UCAS personal statement editing order will be emailed to you within the timescale that we promised with a detailed report/ critique explaining the changes that we have made to your statement and outlining the reasons why we have done so.

Revisions will be made in line with the package you purchased and we guarantee that you will be happy with the resulting statement. If you’re not happy, we’ll do everything we can to make sure that the finished UCAS personal statement is perfect.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thank for all your help on my CV and cover letter. It has certainly paid dividends. Hope all is well with you. I thought I would share my good news. I have landed the perfect role for me and start on the 13th November. Thank you again for rewriting my CV, I have had so much more contacts from recruiters since then. Truly a worthwhile venture. Thanks again.

Mohamed E, UK

Glenn, I thought you may like to know that subject to references I got the position. So many thanks.

David S, Swansea

Hi Glenn, Thank you so much for getting this done with such short notice. I really appreciate it. Thanks, Lauren.

Lauren H, Swansea

Fantastic! I am very impressed with the level of service I have received from you. It is refreshing to see that you aren’t just going to end it with the completion of the cover letter and cv – above and beyond Sir, above and beyond.

Colin M, Cardiff

Hi Glenn Hope you are well? Just thought I'd let you know that I signed my contract last week with XXXXX. Previously I was employed on an Interim basis thru an agency. I just really wanted to thank you for helping me to realise my potential and helping deliver a knock out CV. If it hadn't been for that CV I wouldn't have gotten in the door with XXXXX. It's such a pleasure working in a company where the work you do is appreciated and everyone made me feel so welcome and where people help one another out. Certainly a far cry from my previous employer.

Andrew W, Mid Wales

I used your CV service sometime last year and was very pleased with the results I was given. I would like to pass them on to your site.

Justin B, England

Hi Glenn, I have two interviews this week one on Monday another in Wednesday. Let's see what feedback they supply. My wife will email her achievements. Positive feedback on Friday too

Philip W, Midland, UK

I am really happy with how the CV turned out, and am glad that I spent the money to have it done professionally instead of falling for a cut and paste job from the cheaper services. You really can see the difference.

Niall, England

Hi Glen. Thank you .................I got the job. First job interview in 17 years, got through to phone interview and then at HQ in London for further interviews and presentations.

Sally A, SW England

I have had an enormous response from every CV that I have sent. I was absolutely blown away.

Lance M, South Africa

I really appreciate your kind efforts and work for tailoring my CV. It was tough work and you managed it professionally.

Aamir S, Geneva

Dear Mr Glen. Outstanding job on my Cover letter and CV. They are very professionally written and reflect the image I want to portray.

Said R, Jordan

In a 5min video you pointed out more things than my friends and family could spot in over a week.

Ioana A, Budapest

I got the job!! Just wanted to let you know my news that I got the role! Thanks so much for your help and support!!

Natalie R, London

Confirmation received from Swansea University!! I’ve got into LAW!!!!!

Kiera P, Cardiff

I have a good news! Your work on the CV got me called for the interview at BCG just as I had hoped for. Also, BCG was the only company I sent the CV to, so it is 100% success rate.

Bonney, A, India

The interview is on Monday. I hope to crack it and will let you know in a couple of weeks if I got the job. But whether I get the job or not, your CV got me shortlisted for the interview and that is the maximum I had hoped from a resume. I cant express how happy I am with your service.

Eve W, Ireland

Thank you for the finalised CV. I am very pleased with the results. Thank you for all your help.

Russell M, Swansea

I have been working with Glenn for a number of months. My job search had not been fruitful until I came across Glenn. He helped me bring out the best in me; the things that were not obvious to me. He gave me the necessary tools to re-enter into the job search market with confidence. I am very grateful to Glenn for his help and only wish I had found him earlier.

Dale J, France

I can honestly say that Glenn is an Absolutely World Class Professional at what he does. He's tough with you but he gets the best out of you and he will not settle for anything less. If you need a first class evaluation of your talents, experience, expertise he the man to go to. And a thoroughly nice honest individual to boot. Best wishes Jenny.

Jenny L, Wales

The personal statement is an important part of the UCAS application. It's your chance to describe your ambitions, skills, and experience.

Our personal statement tool

You can write up to 4,000 characters of text that show you’d make a great student – so it might take a few redrafts until you’re happy with it.

This tool will help you think about what to include in your personal statement, and how to structure it. It also counts how many characters you’ve used, so it’s easy to see when you’re close to that 4,000 character limit.

Write your personal statement now


  • Course descriptions mention the qualities, skills and experience it’s useful to have for each subject – take note of these to help you decide what to write about.
  • Remember it’s the same personal statement for all the courses you apply to, so avoid mentioning unis and colleges by name. Most students choose similar subjects, but if you’ve chosen a variety, just write about common themes – like problem solving or creativity.
  • If you've got a question about writing your personal statement, don't worry you're not alone. Check out our blogs:

What to write about

  1. Why you are applying – your ambitions and what interests you about the subject, course providers and higher education.
  2. What makes you suitable – any relevant skills, experience or achievements gained from education, work or other activities.
  • Extracurricular activities

    These are great ways to prepare for higher education.

    If you do or have done any of these before, they could be ideal things to mention in your personal statement. Or you might be able to organise or start a new activity before you send your application.

  • International and EU students

    As an international student there are a few extra things you should mention.

    1. Why you want to study in the UK
    2. Your English language skills and any English courses or tests you’ve taken
    3. Why you want to be an international student rather than study in your own country
  • Mature students

    Here’s where you can mention any alternative entry requirements you’ve used – like an Access course or APL – demonstrating the skills and knowledge you’ve gained through your previous experiences.


How to write it

Feel free to use our personal statement mind map and personal statement worksheet for planning your personal statement.

There’s no definite formula to follow – just take your time and follow these guidelines.

  • Structure your info to reflect the skills and qualities the universities and colleges value most.
  • Write in an enthusiastic, concise and natural style – nothing too complex.
  • Try to stand out, but be careful with humour, quotes or anything unusual – just in case the admissions tutor doesn’t have the same sense of humour as you.
  • Proofread aloud and get your teachers, advisers, and family to check – then redraft until you’re happy with it and the grammar, spelling, and punctuation are correct.

We recommend you write your personal statement first, and then copy and paste it into your online application when you’re done.

Check the 4,000 character and 47 line limits though – some word processors get different values if they don’t count tabs and paragraph spacing as individual characters.

When you do add it to your application, save it regularly as it times out after 35 minutes of inactivity.

Applying for Teacher Education in Scotland?

If you're applying to study Teacher Education in Scotland, you'll need to make your application through the UCAS Undergraduate scheme. Read dedicated personal statement advice from Scottish training providers about what to include in your personal statement.


  • European characters and other languages

    You can use some ​European characters in your personal details, personal statement, employment and referee details. Some of these will be substituted with UK equivalent characters. Check our Extended character sets substitutions​ for more details.

    It’s not possible to apply in an alternative language, unless you’re applying to Welsh course providers and you’d like to make your application entirely in Welsh.

    1. To register in Welsh, when you go to the application service ‘Apply’, you can select ‘Cymraeg’.
    2. When you’re logged in to your application you can change the language to English or Welsh on the ‘Options’ page.
    3. The help text in Apply is available in Welsh too.
    4. In Apply you can choose to receive correspondence from course providers and from us in Welsh.

    Sut i ymgeisio

  • What happens to personal statements that have been copied?

    We screen all personal statements across Copycatch our Similarity Detection system – so make sure your personal statement is all your own work. Don’t copy from anyone else or from the internet and don't share your personal statement with other applicants.

    If we find any similarity in your personal statement, your application will be flagged. Then we’ll email an alert to you and your university or college choices and this could have serious consequences for your application.

  • Want to say more?

    You can only submit one personal statement – the same one for all the courses you apply to – and you can’t change it after your application has been submitted.

    If you want to send any more information you can ask your university and college choices if they’ll accept further details.

    • If they agree, you should send it to them, rather than us.
    • After we receive your application, we’ll send you a welcome email that includes your Personal ID – quote your Personal ID along with the further information you send to the unis and colleges, so they can link it to your UCAS application.
