UCAS Personal Statement Masterclass
The personal statement masterclass was a triumph! It helped lead to
immediate offers from all the universities my daughter applied to. We are lucky enough to have a friend who works on the admissions team for a university, so once Esme had worked through the masterclass, had edited and re-edited until she had her final statement and then we cheekily asked him if he could read it to see what he thought (I hasten to add, she wasn't applying to the university where he works). He said it was fantastic and that he wouldn't change a thing. Lucy, without you she wouldn't have known where to start, so a belated thank you.
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the both personal statement workshop and 1:1 session you had with Lauren today. We were expecting personal statement writing to take weeks and be very stressful but again thanks to your advice it turned into a very systematic and natural process. I haven’t seen her statement yet, but I know she is feeling very happy with it and just has some final touches to make before the “big reveal”!"
Parent of a Cambridge applicant
"I started to follow Lucy’s Personal Statement masterclass after deciding to apply to Cambridge University. By having videos and a detailed workbook to make the process far more manageable, writing my personal statement didn’t take as long or feel anywhere near as stressful as expected. The best thing about working with Lucy is knowing that constant support is available through email or the Zoom Q and A’s she offers. I found the 1:1 session incredibly valuable, Lucy helped me finesse my personal statement so I could be sure it would impress in my university application."
The UCAS Personal Statement Masterclass is made up of three parts:
- 1How to choose your subject, courses and university so that you love what you study, thrive at university and come out with a really good degree
- 2How to prepare to write your personal statement so that you have high quality and impressive experiences to write about that will convince admissions tutors you have the passion and intellectual ability they're looking for
- 3How to write your UCAS personal statement so that it wows the admissions tutors and doesn't take you 20 drafts and too much time to get it right

"I knew from the outset that it was going to take me a long time to write my personal statement, as I am a huge perfectionist. So I signed up to Lucy’s personal statement workshop to guide me and help me be more efficient and productive with my time. It provided me with a structure to start from, and saved me hours, if not days, of fiddling around with details that I would eventually have to cut out anyway! Once I finished my final draft, I booked a session with Lucy who reviewed it with me via Zoom*, and helped me to put the finishing touches on it. This spared me a great deal of anxiety and I felt very proud of the result. On the back of this I managed to secure an interview for Cambridge.

I got an offer today from Oxford and just wanted to thank you for your help on my personal statement as I am sure that played a big part in my acceptance there and all the other universities which offered me places.
Year 13 Student
I bought Lucy's personal statement package for my son after he produced about 4 lines in as many weeks. With Lucy's help he produced a full statement which his tutor said was “excellent- one of the best he’d seen”!
This masterclass has allowed me to show passion through relating different things I've done such as topic areas or courses/visits which I didn't think of myself. I had offers from all my unis.

Who's behind the UCAS Personal Statement Masterclass?
My name is Lucy Parsons. Over the last five years I have helped dozens of students get into their first choice of university by supporting them to craft impressive personal statements. Students have received interviews and places at universities across the country, from courses as diverse as design at Bournemouth to English and Physics at Oxford and HSPS at Cambridge. My expertise has been featured in The Telegraph, Independent, Independent Schools Magazine, World Student Magazine and on Radio 5 Live.
The Personal Statement Masterclass is brilliant! My son is ploughing through it now, having been told to come up with a draft personal statement by mid June with no input from school!! He likes the interaction with the videos and then completing the sections. It really focuses your mind and breaks it down into manageable stages. The outline of what to include in each paragraph and how to vary the openers is ideal too.
Parent of year 12
Lucy provides excellent insights, ideas and inspiration alongside great encouragement and support for students and parents alike. Her warm and empathetic approach, combined with her great experience and knowledge make for a winning combination. She helped my very dyslexic year 12 son to write a personal statement that got him offers at all the universities he applied to to study design.

All of the resources inside the Personal Statement Masterclass are invaluable, I would recommend their use as they provided an excellent structure. Following the masterclass ensured that the process of writing my personal statement was efficient and ultimately successful. The advice transformed my personal statement into one that allowed me to get an offer from Cambridge!
