If you are applying for an undergraduate course in the UK and need help with your personal statement, you should choose our UCAS undergraduate personal statement writing service. The UCAS personal statement will summarise your ambitions, skills, and experiences within the strict 4000-character limit specified by UCAS. Rest assured, our writers will take the time to fully understand your academic and personal profile before they start writing. This will enable them to craft an original and inspiring UCAS personal statement that shows you off in the best light possible! Remember, you will be matched with a writer who has helped many other students gain entry into your chosen university. So, rest assured, your writer will know exactly what they are doing!
If you are applying for a postgraduate programme in performing arts, teacher training, social work, nursing or law, you may need to apply through UCAS. If so, you will need a UCAS personal statement to support your application. We have writers who hold PhDs in all the aforementioned subjects, so we can create the perfect personal statement for your programme. We recognise, for example, that performing arts statements should highlight an applicant’s creative side whereas law statements should highlight an applicant’s analytical side. That said, we will match you with an appropriate writer who will know exactly how to tell your story.
If you are applying for an undergraduate programme that is not processed by UCAS, you can choose our undergraduate (standard) writing service. With this service, a writer specialising in your subject will carefully craft a personal statement that is not only unique but engaging. We know that the grammar and style must be perfect, so your personal statement will be carefully proofread by our Quality Assurance Department before delivery. We want you to be 100% satisfied so, as with all our personal statement services, you can request tweaks if needed.
Applying for a postgraduate diploma, master’s degree, or perhaps even a PhD? Our postgraduate personal statement service will help you stand out amongst a sea of other applicants. Gaining entry onto a postgraduate programme can be highly competitive so you will want to put your best foot forward. So, let us match you with a writer who specialises in writing premium, postgraduate personal statements. Your writer will take the time to fully understand your background and use their knowledge and creativity to present your profile in a captivating way. Our writers do not use clichés so expect your personal statement to be one-of-a-kind!
Are you looking to apply for a new role? Or perhaps a promotion? Maybe you can sense a career change on the horizon, but you lack the confidence to put yourself out there. If that is the case, our professional application service could be for you. You will be assigned a dedicated writer who has relevant professional experience as well as strong writing skills. They will work closely with you to create a cover letter or job application that is bound to impress your future employer!

Applying for university can be stressful, especially if you’re trying to do it alone. Most applicants would agree that writing the personal statement is the most difficult part of the application process. Remember, the personal statement is your chance to explain exactly why you want to study your chosen subject at uni and why you think you would be good at it.
Explaining why you’re suited to a particular programme can be daunting, especially if you’re quite humble and not used to singing your own praises. Thankfully, having an outsider’s perspective can be very useful, as they can help you to recognise your strengths. Indeed, one of the main reasons students ask us for help with their personal statement is because they are finding it hard to articulate their potential! Here at Ivory Research, we recognise that everyone has unique talents, skills, and attributes – sometimes they just need teasing out!
If you are an international student, chances are you will be finding it especially difficult to write your personal statement. Writing is hard enough in your own language, let alone in a second language! In this case, it can be helpful to see how a native English speaker would approach the task of writing a personal statement.
Indeed, if you struggle with your English, you might find it helpful to take a look at some of the samples on this webpage, all of which have been written by native English speakers are who are very knowledgeable about the UK admissions process. The benefit of working with a native English personal statement writer is that they will be able to clearly communicate your strengths to the admissions team – there will be absolutely no room for confusion!
Students at all levels use our service on a regular basis to help them achieve their academic goals!

I had my heart set on the PPE at Oxford but, of course, it is extremely competitive. I have a 2.1 from Durham, and lots of work experience, but I was struggling to write a decent personal statement. Ivory Research took the time to really understand my strengths and they made me sound amazing! I am so pleased to say that I will be starting at Oxford in September.
My form tutor told me that I would need an A* in Economics to get into Oxford (but I only had an A), so I almost didn’t bother applying. But I am so glad I did! Thanks to Ivory Research, I have been accepted onto the BSc Economics and Management at Oxford - I can't wait to start :)
I am just writing to let you know that last week I was accepted into Oxford to study Law! Thank you so much, I couldn’t have done it without you. The personal statement you wrote for me so much better than I could have ever written myself.
Studying Medicine at St Andrews is so competitive so I knew I needed an exceptional personal statement. I sent my first draft to these guys and they transformed it into a masterpiece. I am still waiting for the decision on my application but I am feeling very confident!
I wrote my dissertation on Health initiatives in China which really inspired me to study Digital Health at postgrad level. I had previously used Ivory Research to proofread my dissertation and they did a great job, so I thought I would try their personal statement service too. The quality was amazing – the statement made me feel so proud of my achievements. And, yes, I got in to St Andrews!
Last year, I decided to apply for a Psychology conversion as it’s my passion to become a clinical psychologist. The biggest hurdle was writing the personal statement as I had quite a lot of disjointed work history, and I only got a 2.2 in my first degree. These guys were so patient in understanding my background and they wrote such a classy personal statement. 110% recommend!
I had been working at PwC for 5 years, but I felt stagnant. I decided it was the right time to apply for the MBA at Cambridge, but, since I had a 2.2 degree, I wasn’t sure if they would take me. Ivory Research helped me to communicate my strengths and achievements, and I was accepted on the course!! I can’t believe it! I am so excited for the future!
When I read the personal statement I was shocked, pleasently surprised, and also incredibly touched - how did these guys make me sound so amazing? This is honestly one of the best investments I've made as Cambridge accepted me to start later this year. Thank you :)
I was nervous about applying for the Mphil as there were so many forms to fill in, references to obtain, and then the personal statement to write. Ivory Research made it seem so easy, though. They wrote me a fantastic statement in just two days!
I got AAB at A Level so I wasn't sure if Cambridge would accept me. I knew I needed some help with my application to give me the best shot possible. Ivory Research were very accommodating, they spent hours understanding my background and delivered a great statement. I asked for a few tweaks and these were made, no problems. If you are worried about your application, these guys are awesome.
I've wanted to study Law for as long as I can remember, but it was hard to get my passion across in writing. Especially since English is not my first language. These guys helped me to explain my motivations in a compelling and original way. I celebrated so hard the day I received my acceptance email!
Maths and public speaking are my strong points, but writing is certainly not, so I knew I would need a bit of help with my personal statement. I learned so many great tips from these guys - such as showing off my technical knowledge and demonstrating how I would be an asset to university. This service has been so helpful!
The Law programme at Durham is so hard to get on to, especially if, like me, you have less than perfect A Levels. Thankfully, I had a lot of work experience and extra-curriculars to support my application, but I needed a really persuasive statement to show these off. Ivory Research's editing service helped me write the perfect statement and I received a conditional offer within weeks. I am so happy!
Ivory Research wrote me a fantastic personal statement - they perfectly captured my interest in criminology and clearly described the skills I could bring to the course. In fact, they even identified skills I had overlooked (like my social skills, and my creativity). These guys are the real deal!
LSE is a top-5 Uni so it's not easy to get into. I am not accustomed to the British style of personal statement writing, so I asked Ivory Research to help. The writer and support team were amazing - answering all my questions and delivering a really great statement of purpose. I made the right choice to ask for help as I might not have got into LSE otherwise.
I sought out various personal statement companies, but I settled on Ivory Research because they felt genuine. In the end, I am happy with my choice. I could tell that my statement hadn’t just been written by any old writer. It was written by a PhD-holder who had legal experience, so they knew exactly how to ‘lift’ my personal statement and make it something special. Thank you!
UCL has always been my dream university – so I put the UCL Marketing Communications degree as my first choice. I trusted Ivory Research to prepare the statement because I've heard great things from my friends and on social media about their high success rate. I was sooo happy with the statement. By the way, I have been invited to attend an interview so fingers crossed!!!
One of the challenges I faced when writing my personal statement was choosing which experiences/qualifications to write about, and how best to present these in a limited word count. My writer helped me to work through all of my skills and qualifications and choose the best ones for my application. I am pleased to say I was offered a place at UCL, thank you guys!
After completing a summer internship at the probation service, I knew I wanted to study Law at uni. I had a few different universities in mind but UCL was my first choice. This course is SO competitive, so I invested in some help with my personal statement, since I heard most people do this. It was invaluable to have an outsider's perspective as they helped me see my strengths!
I asked Ivory Research to help me prepare a statement for the MSc Marketing and Business Analysis at Edinburgh. I am a Chinese national and English is my second language so I was nervous to apply. I wanted to perfectly explain why I was a good student and convince the Admissions team to accept me. The statement was really great and thankfully I was accepted in just 2 weeks!!
I needed ABB to get on to the MA Social Policy and Law but I only had BBB. My friends convinced me to try to apply just in case, and I reached out to Ivory Research to help with my Admissions Letter. They showed me how to frame myself in a positive and attractive light. I can’t believe it but I actually got an offer of study!!
Kings College is one of the best unis to study Business Management so I knew I needed to bring my A-game when writing the personal statement. I read so many blogs about how to write a great personal statement but I became so frustrated when actually writing it. I am so grateful to have found Ivory Research!
As a student of Law, I pride myself on being able to write clearly and concisely, but I know that personal statements need to really stand out - they need to be special. The writer who wrote my personal statement has a background in Law but also years of editorial experience, so she knew how to make my application stand out. Thank you so much, I will recommend you!
Last year, I grew tired of being an office worker and decided to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. I spent a couple of years getting work experience and studying an access course but then it came to writing the personal statement. To be honest, this was a huge hurdle as I've never been good at writing. Thankfully, Ivory Research wrote me the perfect statement and I was accepted!
I achieved AAB in my A-Levels so I felt quietly confident about being accepted onto the Finance & Statistics degree, Glasgow. That is until I got to the 'personal statement' part of my application. I am dyslexic and HATE writing about myself, so this was hard for me. I asked for Ivory Research to help and I am so glad I did - they took all my stress away!
I was so nervous about applying for uni - in fact, it was keeping me up at night! The worst part was writing the personal statement, I had written so many drafts and asked people to check them over, but it never felt good enough. The writers at Ivory Research edited my statement to perfection and, it worked, because I will be studying at Glasgow this September!
