There is a lot of competition for places at good universities. Getting a 1st class degree is no longer a guarantee of a place at Imperial College and other top institutions. If you want to go to these places you need to write a good personal statement. Dr Xie will give some hints on what she and other course directors at Imperial look for when reviewing applications. Please attend if you are planning to apply to a UK University for postgraduate studies.
