UCAS PS in US or UK English?

SasamiSasami 3 replies3 threadsRegistered User New Member
When I write my personal statement in order to apply for UK unis through UCAS, I am anxious about English in UK style is more preferebly seen than that in US style.
Actually, I am much more familiar to US English than UK English.
So, let me know whether Personal Statement in US English is disadvantageously seen by admission tutors.

    Do you mean spelling?

    Yes.
    For example, color/colour, organize/organise.

    You can do either- but you *must* be consistent.
    If you are asking for advice, I would go with UK spellings (set your spell check to UK English). Tbh, though, it will be obvious by your grammar that English- either version- is not your first language.

    Actually -ize endings are standard in UK English too, but are seen as weirdly quaint/dated/formal.

    I don't think it matters. Everybody knows that US English is the norm in a lot of foreign countries.
