Personal Statement Guidance

How do I write a personal statement for college?

Remember this personal statement is not the same as you would write if you would be applying to University. When applying to college you only need to write no more than 400 words. Your personal statement is so the colleges or further education can talk to you at your interview about why you are applying to them in particular, what your interests and hobbies are and also what you hope to do in the future. Here you will see some links to help with the process.
