Writing your personal statement

You've got just 4000 characters to say why you want to study Theology and Religious Studies. It's not much! And it may seem even harder if you want to combine it with another subject on a joint honours course.

Tim and Cat share their advice on what to include in a personal statement. They've written their own (successfully!) and read quite a few of other peoples so have a few top tips for you. From showing your passion to demonstrating your experience their short video will help get you started.
