Hi! I have written lots of these before, and also helped in an admissions capacity so I have some advice for you.


You need to mention the course you are applying for! Why do you want to study that course? What skills and attributes do you have which would make you a good student on the course? What will the course allow you to do with your career?

Why this university over others? What is it about their course that appeals? Choose a study module that appeals and mention it so they know you are familiar with their syllabus.

I would cut the first paragraph, i see what youre trying to do, but its quite self depracating and it is taking up space where you could be taking about the course. You can talk about your current position,but be specific about how it has led you to this course and what it has taught you etc.

Right now,it is beautifully written but totally generic as there is nothing in there that says what you are applying for.  Really hope that didnt come across as harsh, and hope it helps and you get a place. Lots of luck!!
