Personal statement

Personal statements will be assessed against the application criteria.  Please read the course details before completing your application.  

Your statement is your opportunity to show us your passion, enthusiasm, and your personality.  

Here's what we want to see in your personal statement: 

  • Your interest in health promotion and public health. Take time to learn about some of the big conversations happening in healthcare. We like to see that you are engaging in the world of mental health care and nursing. 

  • Understanding the role: demonstrate your understanding of health promotion and public health, recognising both the challenges and rewards of the profession 

  • Transferable skills: highlight transferable skills gained from work experience, volunteering, or hobbies. These skills may have been gained through working in a care environment, but equally may have been gained through communicating and interacting with people in a non-clinical environment (for example, working in a shop/café, volunteering at a school)  

  • Work experience: explain how your past work experiences have equipped you with the necessary skills to study at university.
