Personal Statement

A personal statement is required when applying to UK universities. In it, students are tasked with writing about what they hope to do on the course, what they hope to do after the course and why they are applying. We will edit your personal statement for free and more details can be found here.

Reference Letters

References are usually written by someone who knows you academically or professionally. Most references will talk about you from a teacher's or supervisor's perspective: the way in which you interact with other students and your performance in classes and seminars.

Your reference does not have to be academic, but if you're studying or have recently completed school or college, an academic reference is expected. Choosing the right referee is crucial for your application to university. Things to consider:

Studying in the UK

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
