Personal Statement Program

For Bachelor of Education Entry


From August 2017, all applicants pursuing entry into a Bachelor of Education degree will be required to submit a 1000-word personal statement. This requires applicants to describe their involvement in leadership activities and their motivation or suitability to teaching in terms of conscientiousness, resilience, interpersonal communication skills, and organisational skills.

In the Personal Statement Program, students will work with qualified and experienced teachers who will tailor their tutoring to each individual student. The teacher will explore the student’s inspirations and provide coaching with the written components of the application. The personal statement is unique for each student, so why adopt a standardised approach?
