Three universities - courses in th UK
Dear All, Dear Mary (Holt),
I hope everything is going well with you.
I'm planning to get unconditional offers, for postgraduates, from 3 UK Universities and have made many searches and still have questions that I hope you'll help me with ..
So, my first (1) question
is: Since I want to study (Education), is it acceptable to start my personal statement talking about my professional experience in the field, my qualifications/skills, and linking it with the harsh conditions the Palestinian teachers and students live, which encouraged me to choose the course?
Is starting with this and emphasizing on some records to show the need for such course will be considered a "development of my interest in the course"? For example:
"I have been working in the educational and cultural field for five years, during this time, I could ....... . According to the Unicef, the number of students ....., etc
is that okay?
My second (2) question
is: If I've chosen the same course in the 3 universities, can I use the same essay taking into consideration universities' modules & facilities singularity? Is it going to appear on the plagiarism tool used by the admissions of the 3 universities?
My third (3) and last question
is: When writing my postgraduate personal statement for the universities, Is it okay to use some parts of the same essay I've sent to the scholarship (Chevening)? Like to use the introduction and some parts related to my professional experience and qualifications?
Thanks a lot for your genuine help ..
