Application tips

Here is a handy video from Kathryn, a University of Plymouth graduate, with five top tips for your application to university.
  • Do your research – attend virtual open days and get to know the university and your chosen course.
  • Be thorough – make sure you nail your personal statement, it’s the best opportunity to advertise how great you are.
  • Take your time – starting early and spreading out the workload makes its much more manageable.
  • Proof read over and over – it can be a good idea to write your personal statement in Word first, and don’t forget to ask someone to help check it over before you submit.
  • Be enthusiastic – don’t be afraid to show how excited you are for the course!
