Personal Statement

A personal statement is required when applying to UK universities. In it, students are tasked with writing about what they hope to do on the course, what they hope to do after the course and why they are applying. We will edit your personal statement for free and more details can be found here.

Reference Letters

References are usually written by someone who knows you academically or professionally. Most references will talk about you from a teacher's or supervisor's perspective: the way in which you interact with other students and your performance in classes and seminars.

Your reference does not have to be academic, but if you're studying or have recently completed school or college, an academic reference is expected. Choosing the right referee is crucial for your application to university. Things to consider:

  • Choose an appropriate referee
  • Print on official company or university letterhead
  • Explain the relationship between you and the referee
  • Express confidence that you will complete the course
  • Don’t forget the signature of the referee

Studying in the UK

 I believe my success is due to the great support provided by SI-UK. I was advised the right IELTS courses to attend and they also helped with my visa application. I really want to share with you my positive experience and I would definitely recommend SI-UK to my friends.
