Study Skills Applying to university

Post by abowman03 »

Hi

Am currently working on study skills applying to university and struggling a little, I am due to speak to the tutor next week however I would like to try and conquer this before then. I'm no good writing about myself anyway I am now on to TAQ 3: Evaluate your personal qualities, experience and skills in relation to your university application and new career???

Identify your transferable skills by explaining how they will benefit your university application and new career. Can I mention things like current skills learnt as a health care assistant both in residential homes and within the hospital environment, being a single mum, studying and working so good communication, time management etc.

Reflect on and summarise potential areas for development???

What lay out is required here?

Hi - firstly please refrain from typing the actual question as it isn't allowed.

It's an essay question, and all of the points you make regarding your skills are all valid.

Development part is about evaluating your weaknesses or areas where you can improve yourself in relation to your application.

Everyone finds the personal statement hard, as writing about yourself is something that most people don't generally do.
The one you submit for this assessment doesn't have to be the one that's on your UCAS application, though it's a good practice attempt if nothing else.
Don't use the word passionate, don't use loads of quotes. Explain why you're interested in the subject, demonstrate transferable skills etc - kind of view it as a job application and you'll be on the right track.
