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 science: tell us why you are interested in working in health care as a career. 

  • Understanding the role: demonstrate your comprehension of the role and understanding of health science. 

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

  • Work experience: explain how your skills and work experience will help you be effective in health science learning.
