    wa alaikum asalaam brother

    if personal statements for UCAS are like personal statements that are done for jobs,then this is how i complete them and this way you give them all the information they want from you as well :

    HAve they given you any papers (with employemnt applications you get the Person specification) that tell you what their expectations are of you? what they are specifically looking for? if no,then the following is no use to you!


    if yes then, basically answer their "person spec" like your answering questions but in a kinda story format about yourself.


    So for example they ask in applications "we want a team player who is dedicated and uses his own intiative and has experience of so and so ...."


    so u say how u meet the first point of a tema player, give exmaples, they are always good with anyone! talk about how u will be dedicated, again give examples maybe from your personal life or jobs you have had. Go on to talk about your attributes and say why u tink u have those attributes, so for example, in the above passage they want u to be able to use your own intiative, say how u have done this in the past? again example!

    hope that made sense, i have waaayyy to many job applications, so sorry if it was no applicable to you

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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
