    I went to a University open day and was given some useful hints and tips. Would anyone be able to advise on any good websites, good templates etc to use?

    Looking to get an application submitted within the next 3/4 weeks but just wanted to see what tools people use to help?

    Thanks for reading and good luck those applying.

    Hi, mine is ready to go when UCAS opens for application this week. I googled it and read a few different tips first. In the end I did a mind map on a piece of paper - divided it up into experience, personal interests, education, previous career, what I know about the training programme and any other strengths. I then just had a stab at writing it and re-hashed it a good few times until I felt happy with it. I made sure I linked my experience and used lots of examples. Good luck!
