Personal Statement for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa (Global Talent Visa) hast to have 1,000 words. When counting characters, it must have approximately 7000 of them. Spaces also count. How long is this in practice? Just a page or two?
Official Tech Nation requirements
According to the Tech Nation visa guidelines you need to write a personal statement. Actually, it must have a maximum of 1000 words in length. This piece of your thoughts must explain the contribution that you will make to the UK digital technology sector. In details, your Personal Statement should include answers to the following questions:
- Why do you want to come to the UK?
- What is your planned occupation in the UK?
- Which region or city of the UK are you planning to live in?
- How will the UK digital technology sector benefit from your work?
7000 characters of your Personal Statement
Please, answer all mentioned questions with approximately 200 – 250 words per question. If you will do it then you will miss a headache of counting words and characters.
Roughly 7000 characters with spaces fit for one two-sided A4 page. Also, it can be two one-sided A4 pages :).
Anyway, your Personal Statement should not be longer than this very clear limit.
