How to apply

Think you might like to study with us? We’re delighted. We've got the information you need about how to apply, as well as what your next steps should be once you've submitted your application.

Personal statements and AI

We realise that AI tools are already reshaping the way we work and will become integral to many careers.

Tools such as ChatGPT can be helpful to you in helping to brainstorm ideas, improve the structure of your personal statements, and check readability; however, so can a trusted friend or supporter. Remember, your personal statement is your chance to show us who you are – and we expect it to be written by you.

A personal statement written using AI is likely to be less personal and therefore less effective at conveying who you are and why you want to study the course.  If we find that a personal statement has been written using AI, we will consider this plagiarism and your application may be rejected.

UCAS has a helpful guide on AI and personal statements that potential applicants at all stages of their studies could benefit from reading.
