UCAS Undergraduate

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!

UCAS Postgraduate

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.

Undergraduate Standard

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.

Postgraduate

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!

Professional Application

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! As always, your professional application will be meticulously checked by our Quality team before delivery, so you are guaranteed a faultless end product.

What are the benefits of a professionally written personal statement?

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!

University of Oxford
Chris
has been enrolled on the
Philosophy, Politics and Economics

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.

University of Oxford
Barry
has been enrolled on the
Economics and Management

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 :)

University of Oxford
Donald
has been enrolled on the
Law (Jurisprudence)

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.

University of St Andrews
Stuart
has been enrolled on the
Medicine A100 BSc (Hons)

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!

University of St Andrews
Emeli
has been enrolled on the
Health Care

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!

University of St Andrews
Liz
has been enrolled on the
Psychology Conversion (MSc)

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!

University of Cambridge
Susan
has been enrolled on the
Executive MBA

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!

University of Cambridge
Eddie
has been enrolled on the
MSt in Applied Criminology and Police Management (Senior Leaders’ Master’s Degree Apprenticeship)

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 :)

University of Cambridge
David
has been enrolled on the
Management & Marketing

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!

University of Cambridge
Angela
has been enrolled on the
Psychological and Behavioural Sciences

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.

University of Cambridge
Chen
has been enrolled on the
Law

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!

Durham University
Tim
has been enrolled on the
Finance with Placement Year BSc

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!

Durham University
David
has been enrolled on the
Law with Foundation LLB

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!

Durham University
Emily
has been enrolled on the
Criminology

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!

London School of Economics
Duyi
has been enrolled on the
MSc Finance and Private Equity

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.

London School of Economics
Brian
has been enrolled on the
MPhil/PhD Law

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!

University College London
Alan
has been enrolled on the
Marketing Communications

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!!!

University College London
Jack
has been enrolled on the
Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology

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!

University College London
Mariam
has been enrolled on the
LLB Bachelor of Laws (UCL) and LLB Bachelor of Laws (HKU)

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!

The University of Edinburgh
Rou
has been enrolled on the
Marketing and Business Analysis MSc

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!!

The University of Edinburgh
Meera
has been enrolled on the
MA Social Policy and Law

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!!

King's College London
Ade
has been enrolled on the
Business Management BSc

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!

King's College London
Arthur
has been enrolled on the
Master of Laws LLM

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!

King's College London
Sara
has been enrolled on the
Nursing with Registration as a Mental Health Nurse

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!

The University of Glasgow
Rashid
has been enrolled on the
Finance & Statistics BSc

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!

The University of Glasgow
Shuang
has been enrolled on the
Human Biology & Nutrition BSc

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!

What is UCAS personal statement?
A personal statement supports your application to study at a university or college. Tell the reader why you're applying – include your ambitions, as well as what interests you about the subject, the course provider, and higher education. Think about what makes you suitable – this could be relevant experience, skills, or achievements you've gained from education, work, or other activities.
It’s a chance for you to articulate why you’d like to study a particular course or subject, and what skills and experience you possess that show your passion for your chosen field.
If you’re applying for an apprenticeship – you probably won’t need to write a personal statement, but you’ll need to prepare a CV.

Using our services significantly improves your chances of getting a place on your desired course. However we cannot guarantee a place for you because that is ultimately down to the admissions officer, and you may be rejected for reasons other than your personal statement.
Can I use the same personal statement for more than one school?
If you are applying via UCAS, it’s important to remember you can only write one personal statement – it’s the same for each course you apply for. So, avoid mentioning any universities or colleges by name. If you’ve chosen similar subjects, talk about the subject in general, and try not to mention courses titles. If you’ve chosen a variety of subjects, just write about common themes, like problem solving or creativity.

No, we would never publish your personal statement.
Is it cheating to use your company?
No, it is not. We provide example personal statements that can be used as a basis for writing your own personal statement.
