    Advice Needed Please

    HI guys

    I need some help or advice or both :-)
    I'm trying to get a place in UCC in September. That's our University here in Cork. I haven't done a degree here in Ireland before and I'm over 23 so I will be applying as a mature student. I always wanted to study Biology or Science and I would love to do a degree in Bio Medicine.
    Now on the application form you have to give reasons why. Anybody got any ideas? It's something I can't explain really

    Re: Advice Needed Please

    Tell them why you want that degree: do you want to help people when you finish? Do you want to use it for research? Do you want it so you continue along the educational route to be a doctor or put this degree to use?

    Give them a reason why you want to do it, and tell them you have always been interested in this field.

    Re: Advice Needed Please

    I would like to work in a lab and find out what causes certain illnesses. I just don't know how to say it so that I can impress them enough to take me

    Arnold's advice is good, if that is Galbally's field he would know what to say.

    How long must your entry be? How many words?

    It can be as long as I like but I don't want to rant.

    I'm kind of too shy to PM Galbally. I don't know if he would mind

    Galbally would not mind, and LC's advice to write it straight from your heart is true. Just tell them how you feel about that field, and why you want to study it, and why you want to study it at their institution. That will impress them enough to want you very much.

    Thanks Chonsi, I really hope so. I will have to buff up on my apptitude tests etc as well. I like doing those however so that's OK.
