What can you bring to this university?

While it may be tempting to come out with something witty such as “Just myself” or “I have a couple of rabbits”, it’s advisable to have a constructive answer at hand.

There are many things you can talk about here, but the bottom line is that the admissions tutors want to hear why they should choose you over everyone else.

Think about how you currently contribute to your school or college, and how your activities might be applied to a university environment.

For instance, if you are head of the Debating society at school, what skills or qualities do you possess that will allow you to be a successful member of the university’s Debating society, or any other club/team you might wish to join there?

Always use an example of something similar you currently or previously have done, and explain how you made a difference there.
