HK Personal Statement Coaching

Hong Kong Personal Statement Coaching

Each student applying to universities in Hong Kong via the non-JUPAS route is required to submit a personal statement. The personal statement is a crucial part of the admissions process, and an opportunity for students to highlight their strengths, passion for the subject, and relevant experiences to the admissions officers.

At CANA, our consultants guide each student individually for the personal statement, from providing recommended resources based on the student’s interest, having in-depth discussions about the student’s experiences, to giving detailed feedback and suggestions for each draft.

When to start writing the Personal Statement?

Generally, we recommend students to buffer 2 months to write the statement, as it takes time to read about the subject and reflect on your learnings.

Another recommendation is for students to work on the statement during the summer before the final school year - that would allow them to focus on the writing before the new term starts in September.

What to include in the Personal Statement?

For personal statements, we advise students to reflect on their personal journeys and why they are inspired to choose certain programs.

It is equally important to demonstrate your academic interest through discussing subject-related experiences or readings. For example, if you are applying for medical-related subjects, you can describe your observations from a shadowing experience or hospital internship. For reading-focused subjects, such as law, you can centre on further readings in the subject area, as well as your analysis and key takeaways from the texts.

Finally, you can emphasize your strengths and interests by detailing your extra-curricular activities to show the admissions officers why you are suitable for the programs you are applying for.


Here at CANA Elite, we truly believe that every student is unique and has the potential to reach their goals with the right guidance. Academic excellence is derived from both passionate teachers and eager students. That is why we provide a unique learning experience tailored to each individual student. Named after the location of the first miracle in the Bible, we hope CANA elite can be the place of miracles for all our students, allowing them to achieve their dreams.
