I’m applying for a MSc Computer Science conversion course - I have no idea what to write on the personal statement. I can’t talk about what I want to do with the qualification in terms of a specific role in IT as I have no idea and won’t know until during/after the course. Any help much appreciated!

There must be a reason (Or lots of reasons) why you want to do it.

Experiences that made you feel that way
Qualifications you have and want to build on
Why their particular course (look at modules)

Starter for ten....

Yes all of the above. Course leaders want to know you have done your homework about this specific course as well as how it fits within your work plans.

Ok great, thank you! It doesn’t indicate how many words I should write - I’m thinking maybe a thousand?
