Your personal statement is your opportunity to demonstrate why you think you would be a good candidate for the course you are applying to and why the University should select your application over those of other applicants. It is primarily an academic statement and you must target it very directly towards the subject in which you are interested, though a university will also want to know something about your more general interests.
In general your personal statement should be around one side of A4 in length.
