I have one offer already and am just waiting on another. It's my first year of applying and I genuinely feel that your personal statement school helped immensely.
I recommend it to any aspiring midwives I speak to!
Thank you so much again, it's really well worth the money. Your videos were invaluable to really gain an understanding of what the universities want.
I have your book also....... Ellie Durant fan girl right here! 🙂
I would just like to thank you for all the amazing help and tips I have received from the personal statement school. I was struggling so much, this was just what I needed! I failed to get any interviews with my first application but after writing a lovely personal statement that I am proud of with your help I've managed to bag myself 5 out of 5 interviews this time around! I'm absolutely over the moon and cannot thank you enough. so scared for the interviews but I am much closer to achieving my dream that I ever was before. THANK YOU ELLIE!
I just need to say thank you so much for your help whilst writing my personal statement. The personal statement school was just unendingly fabulous and informative. Before I signed up I didn't even know where to begin, and I was getting nowhere fast. As soon as I logged onto the PS school I knew I had hit the jackpot. Especially as an applicant applying on my own, I haven't had the help of a college or school so I just didn't have the techniques I needed to get me going.
Reading my PS for the last few times before I sent it off I KNEW it was good. Before I couldn't have imagined it would sound so awesome and contain everything I wanted it to! You just managed to translate it in such an understandable way - to get it all down on the page in a concise manner that flowed and sounded kick-ass. And now, I have two interviews at my top two university choices! All I can say now is: wow. It truly worked. Well done, and thanks and for all the work you have done/continue to do helping aspiring midwives. Now on to interview prep...
The mind maps are amazing, and I'm writing down things I had completely forgotten about. They make me look at things differently and enable me to put them down as skills gained. I thought my PS was pretty tight and rather good, until I came across your school & I am now starting again and rewriting it all!
What an amazing resource! I signed up the day it came out and it has been such a help to me! So easy to understand and takes you through step by step, it has managed to keep me calm when writing my personal statement. Well done Ellie and thank you so much!
anonymous testimonial: The Personal Statement School helped me get 5/5 interviews and I can't recommend it enough. It helped me organise my thoughts, focus on the key points and avoid common mistakes, whilst writing my statement in my own words. If you are going to use one resource to help your application then it should definitely be this!
I've had several personal statements fail to get any interviews so I got this on the first day it was out. I can see where I was going wrong and am much more confident now. Fingers crossed! Thanks Ellie.
Oh my god it's amazing - signed up immediately. Honestly Ellie I was shaking with excitement - it's exactly what I need, it's brilliant for working out what you want to say and how to structure.
'I have literally just surfaced (beginning at 9am....) from Ellie Durant personal statement school. Not been full on working the whole time but the inspiration/research section!! One YouTube video led to another... which led to another... would definitely recommend it so far!!
I didn't think I could afford to do it but I saved here and there the past couple of weeks and I've managed. I'd seriously recommend anyone give up a couple of takeaways or bottles of vino.'
I was in tears watching the inspiration section last night! it's kicked so many of my bad habits that I didn't even know I had. x
Thank you! I felt my personal statement was much stronger after the personal statement school. I wish I had found it sooner! I haven't stopped celebrating and will probably continue to do so until September!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the help your website has given me over the last few months. Your personal statement school was amazing, I couldn't have written mine without it! Also your interview advice helped so much, I felt so prepared for my interviews and it gave me a lot of confidence going in to them.
I've just been offered a place, my first choice university and I couldn't be happier. I'm so excited to be starting my journey towards becoming a midwife. Thank you again for all your help, I really couldn't have done it without you.
That's good, thank you so much! I just finished writing my statement with the help of your ps school and it was amazing, really confident about my application now thanks to your wonderful videos! 🙂 xx
Over the summer holidays I spent hours and hours stressing over how to start, and write my personal statement, I knew what I wanted to say but actually getting it down onto paper felt impossible!
Then I found Ellie's personal statement school, and my favourite thing about it is that it doesn't feel like Ellie is doing it for you, but it simply organises all your thoughts into sections, and gives you resource ideas, making the process of writing it so much more organised and it also helped me understand exactly what the admissions tutors are looking for.
I submitted my UCAS last week and have already received an offer for an interview.
Thank you so much Ellie, for turning what could have been very stressful into an exciting and interesting experience.
I strongly recommend using the personal statement school to help you write a brilliant and exciting personal statement!
I'm finding your lessons and tips so very helpful and I'm super grateful for the effort you have put in to produce such a magnificent tool for all us up-and-coming midwives.
For anyone that's struggling, not happy or not even started their statement, I cannot stress enough how much this will help you!
Thank you Ellie, you truly are a wonderful and inspiring person.

What Is Midwife Diaries Personal Statement School?
A step by step video guide on how to write an outstanding, unique UCAS midwifery personal statement.
Last year I offered a personal statement coaching service and found most of the people I worked with were brilliant candidates for the role of student midwife. But they just didn’t know how to write about their unique set of skills, insights, knowledge, and understanding in their personal statement.
Writing a midwifery personal statement is unlikely to be similar to anything you've written before, and demonstrating your suitability can be difficult, even if you're an ideal candidate.

Midwife Diaries Personal Statement School is the start of lifelong learning about midwifery. The process is designed to help you write a fantastic and unique personal statement and teach you valuable knowledge and insights along the way that will make your application even stronger and help you when you get to your interview.
It was sad for me to turn away so many hopeful prospective midwives because I didn’t have the time to work with them all. So, this year, the Midwife Diaries Personal Statement School is open to everyone!
I believe all midwifery candidates should have the opportunity to write about themselves in the best way possible. They shouldn't be held back just because they don’t have the specific set of skills needed to write about the qualities they already have.
All my experience in helping applicants write amazing personal statements has been poured into this course.
Easy to use on both Desktop and Mobile
Quick and easy workbook to structure your ideas and writing
Over 30 videos on every aspect of writing your personal statement
The most common, devastating mistakes even clever candidates can make
Bonus videos explaining how to talk about your unique circumstances
Brand new example good and bad personal statements
Lots of midwifery knowledge you'll absorb

Start Writing Your Statement From Scratch
You don’t need anything to get started! I’ll guide you through exploring your ideas and carefully selecting the points you want to write about. Structure, writing the body, introduction and conclusion, and blasting through going blank are all included in the course. As well as modules about special tips and tricks, writing about personal and unique circumstances, polishing and the all important character count.
Check You're Writing In The Best Way
The course is focussed on teaching you to communicate the best of your skills, insights, and qualities to the admissions tutors. You'll check you're using the top techniques.. Whether you're a mature student, young student, or Access Course student - you'll learn how to showcase your skills and personality, and make sure you have an edge.

Definitely Not Plagiarism
I just can’t stress this enough. There is no need to worry about UCAS' 'Copycatch' plagiarism software because your personal statement will be unique, authentic and all about you. Midwife Diaries is NOT about unfair advantage and is NOT about plagiarism. You will learn and research (with my help) on this course and actually become a stronger candidate.
Avoid The Mistakes That Most Candidates Make
Language is very important in midwifery and the way we speak has a deep influence on the care we provide. I’ll teach you why we talk about certain things in certain ways so that you have the best possible chance of demonstrating your unique insights into the profession.
Know What’s Expected Of You
Many candidates don’t know what is expected of them in their personal statement. This course will teach you what admissions tutors value most in a midwifery candidate and how to show you have what they are looking for.
