Personal Statement Writing - University Applications

We will discuss tips for writing an appealing personal statement for university and college applications.

About this event

This workshop is ideal for high school students who are hoping to go to university or college, but not sure where to start their application process. Over the course of this 1.5 hours workshop, you will gain:

  • An overview of the application process and expectations
  • Insight into what the selection committee wants
  • Things to think about to help you to build a coherent and convincing personal story
  • Techniques to grab the reader’s attention from the start
  • Understanding of the overall structure of a personal statement
  • Guiding questions and examples of what to include in each section of your personal essay

In addition to these insights, attendees will have a chance to submit a personalized application related question in advance of the workshop that will either be addressed during the workshop or within the Google Classroom community that all attendees will have access to upon registration.

This workshop is completely ONLINE, which mean there is a LIVE STREAM with the speaker on the one Thursday a month between August 2022 and December 2022 at 6:30pm, followed by access to Google Classroom portal where you can share ideas and resources, as well as have access to a personal statement writing template. This means that the personal statement writing support extends beyond the workshop to a supportive community of students working towards the same goal.
