  • Help, Personal Statement

    As Salaamu Alaikum,

    I need help with writing a Personal Statement for UCAS. I find it hard to talk about myself. Are there any good resource websites?

    The two main points I would like to discuss are Ethical Careers, and Architecture.

    All help is appreciated.

    Jazaak Allaahu Khair.

      I was also going to suggest The Student Room. It's one of the best!
      Give me a clear vision, that I may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless I stand for something, I will fall for anything.

            I’ll start it off for you:

            My name is Hisham Abu

            Location : London

            Alhamdulillah I am a Muslim, born in February 4th, Insha’Allah I want to get married so that is why I want to go university. Insha’Allah I want to be active with the Islamic society and spread dawah to the students.

            I want to study Built Environment because I want to help my wife with assembling flat pack furniture

              I remember brother Hamza Momand studying architecture at a university in Abbotabad, Pakistan. Maybe you could PM him and ask him?

                      I desperately need some help. Expressing myself in writing is by far not one of my strongest traits.

                      Thus far I have only managed to write an opening paragraph, and even that is so impersonal, it's so formal like a receipt for a prescription drug:

                      edited.
                      Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. This stuff should have been done time ago, so I am in fact very quickly running out of time.

                      Jazaak Allaahu Khair for your help.

                            No not yet. Was meant to do it today, but wasn't in the mood. But alhamdulilah I've found 7 examples I can also refer to, from the StudenRoom website. They are a bit weak, but Insha'Allaah, I could use it as a measure to assess how good mine is. However I have now chosen my 5 choices for University, and I am quite happy about those. It was something I was worrying about as well. Alhamdulilah.

                              brother i personally have no experience of doing a statement.However, (you may already know) do a draft, even if it is incomplete to you,and ask someone from the Careers office or Connexions to check it for you.

                              Sometimes, we do think that these careers advisers are pointless, but, at times they could come up with surprisingly good info!

                              I appreciate your choice of subject, and I absolutely admire Islamic Architecture. I was once suggested to look into doing architeture as I was really good at geommetry, all those drawings, lines and circles, it was all enjoyable!

                              Wish you the best of luck!
