Share your university application essay with the DP class of 2019

You completed your IB programme, and now you are moving on towards your future career and academic goals. But how did you get where you are today? And more importantly, how did you tell your story? We’d like to know!

Did you write a great university application essay or personal statement? If so, we’d like to share essays on this blog to inspire current and future IB classes applying for university admission.

University and college application essays are personal and deeply reflect the accomplishments, challenges and thoughts of students preparing to transition in life. They can be funny, heart-warming, or even thought provoking.

We will consider full essays, excerpts or even reflections on what it took to write your application essay. Send yours to

University application deadlines are coming up, so submissions by 15 November are appreciated, but we will accept essays throughout the 2019 university admission season.  We hope to inspire the diploma class of 2019 as well as future IB diploma classes applying for acceptance to their universities of choice.
