Personal statements are used to help make a variety of decisions about your application. These include whether to make an offer or to invite an applicant to an interview, or later in the year whether to accept an applicant who has narrowly missed the conditions of their offer.
“Investing time into making sure your personal statement is as good as it can possibly be is time well spent,” said Anja. “Here at Hull, we consider the whole person, not just your grades. It’s also about energy and ambition, as well as your personal achievements outside of school or college. Your personal statement really helps us to develop a sense of who you are and your ambitions for the future.”
Following the success of our last open days when hundreds of students and their guests from across the country were able to spend the weekend in Hull by taking advantage of a campus accommodation offer, the University will continue to offer this support for travel* and accommodation for the Open Day on Saturday 23 November.
This support means that prospective students living in places more than 20 miles away –including Goole, Driffield, Bridlington, Scunthorpe and Grimsby – are eligible for financial assistance for travel costs.
Find details of this support, download the programme and book on to our Open Day here.
At our November open days, prospective students will be able to meet University lecturers and professors who will be on-hand to offer subject and course information. Visitors will also be able to take a tour of campus and the city, find out more from current students about university life in Hull and hear about other unique activities available here, including unrivalled opportunities from our Team GB partnership.
