How to write a personal statement for postgraduate course applications
Using AI tools to write your personal statement
Generating (and then copying, pasting and submitting) all or a large part of your personal statement from an AI tool such as ChatGPT, and presenting it in your own words, could mean that your statement doesn’t appear genuine. While AI tools can be useful if used in the correct way, they can’t replicate your personal thoughts and feelings and convey your own skills and experiences. Your personal statement should be your own work, and AI tools can make it appear bland and generic and could affect your chances of being offered a place.
If you are an international student and require a student visa, the UKVI may refer to your personal statement during an interview.
