This course is specifically for students writing a personal statement for Medicine application. It is taught by Dr Dibah Jiva, founder of theMSAG, who has 16 years of experience helping students get into medical school. 

By the end of the class, you should expect to have a very good understanding of what universities are looking for, what differentiates very good personal statements from average ones, a good list of content brainstormed from your own activities (what to include, what not to and how to discuss it), a clear understanding and method on how to reflect on your personal statement, as well as one paragraph written at a good standard. You will not have your full PS written by the end of the course. This is a session that is best taken early, as you start to write your personal statement.

    The course was really helpful in refining and building up my personal statement to the point it is right now. The tutors were amazing, they analysed and explained each and every thing I needed to know before writing a good personal statement. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to make the best out of their personal statement.

    Knockout course for a Knockout statement

    Posted by Iman on September 4, 2020

    If you want a non-generic, knockout personal statement, MSAG can certainly help and guide you to create one that stands well above the norm. They helped me take my statement to a much higher level by helping me improve my content through clarifying my motivations, purpose and vision.
