英国入读申请,经济学、计算机等热门专业个人陈述制作你需谨慎

2018.11.01 16:04 · 留学安全   来源:


大家在编创个人陈述时,肯定会参考诸多的范文与写作案例,但就小编的调查,多数的个人陈述写作攻略都是模糊阐述怎样撰写,并没有细分至详尽专业。倘若遵循此类攻略上陈述的撰写技巧,写出的文章固然没有问题,甚至投递至任何一所学校的任何专业都契合,但缺乏相对应的个性与特色,这种个性特色才是招生官们最期待的。下面我们来参考下经济学、计算机、心理学、医学等热门专业招生官最期待看到个人陈述的类型。

 

经济学

Dr Gary Slater,商学院经济学副教授

“Too often,applicants make vague statements like 'economics informs everything' or 'as an avid reader of The Economist......' but these don’t impress.

往往,申请者会用到很混沌的陈述,譬如“经济映射出任何事”或者“作为经济学人的热心读者”。但此类陈述并不能让人产生印象。

“Instead,say something meaningful about the books you've read,economists' blogs you follow or topical issues you’re following,including what in particular you find interesting (or even disagree with). In short,be yourself,be honest and make sure you evidence your enthusiasm for the subject.”

反之,谈一些你浏览过的有旨趣的书籍,或你关注相关经济学家的博客,或你正追的热门话题,加之那些你认为有趣的(甚至是不敢苟同)的内容。简言之,要呈现真实的自我,展示出你对这一学科的热情。

 

计算机科学

Dr Neil A. Gordon计算机科学系招生官

“Generic statements such as ‘keeping up to date with technology’ tell us very little,but if you have experience of Scratch programming,have investigated a programming language such as C# or Java,or have built something using a Raspberry Pi,that’s relevant.

与科学保持一致”这样的泛泛而谈能呈现给我们有用的信息真的很少,但假设你有Scratch编程经历,钻研C++或Java之类的编程语言,或者运用过树莓派建过模型,那么这些信息都是非常管用的。

“Visiting a university computing department,attending a science fair,or being a member of a computing society would also show a personal interest in the subject.”

参观过高校的计算机学院,或参加过某一科学博览会,或是成为计算机圈中的一个成员,同样能展示你在这一学科领域中的兴趣。

 

法学

Tim Hillier,德蒙特福特法学院院长

“We like to know that students are going to be interested in studying law. It's useful to know what motivated the applicant to choose law rather than all the other subjects on offer.”

我们想了解,学生对法律学习是否满兴趣。了解什么是促使申请者抉择法律而不是其他专业是很有意思的。

“Interest may stem from A-Level study, or from something in the news, or from personal interaction with the law. It doesn't matter as long as it is personal to the individual applicant.”

兴趣可能来自于A—Level研究,也可能是新闻中的某些内容,或是与法律的个人关联。这些并不重要,只要是申请者个人的兴趣起源。

“Law is also very much about communication and language so personal statements that indicate genuine interest in reading (beyond the set texts for A-level) or the meaning of words will suggest an aptitude for law.”

法律与语言和沟通也有很大的关联。因此,个人陈述展现的是对阅读真正的兴趣,或者是词意表现出法律上的素养。

 

心理学

Dr Andrew Clark,伦敦布鲁内尔大学的心理学本科招生导师

“I’m not interested in applicants name-checking specific psychological studies. They don’t need to have studied the subject before,and they don’t need to have been interested from an early age.”

我对申请者叙述的正在做某一特定心理学的研究并不感兴趣。他们并不一定要研究过这一学科,也不一定是从很早的年纪就对心理学产生了兴趣。


“Instead,I want to know that applicants understand and appreciate modern psychology as a scientific endeavour,one which relies on formulating hypotheses and testing them with data to gain insights into brain and behaviour.”

相反,我想知道申请者领悟和欣赏现代心理学,把它当做是科学努力探寻出的成果,这要依赖于形成假设并运用数据进行验证,从而获得对大脑和行为的认识。

“There are a lot of public misconceptions about what the subject is about, most of which ignore this critical feature. The more misconceptions an applicant holds, the more likely that they’ll be disappointed with the course.”

很多人对心理学学科存在误解,大多数忽视了它的关键属性。一个申请者的曲解越多,那么他对这一学科未来的课程学习将越有可能感到失望。

 

医学

Dr Karen Grant,兰卡斯特医学院的招生主任和医学研究副主任

“A common mistake that applicants make when they write their personal statement is to describe a long list of different types of work and voluntary experience, without reflecting on these experiences and without demonstrating much insight into their chosen career.”

大多数申请者在编撰个人陈述时常犯的毛病,描述一长串不同类型的工作和志愿经历,却没有反思和总结,也没有体现出他们对自身职业生涯的决策有很深的的见地。

“Much more important than what you have done is what you can demonstrate that you learned from the experience. What did you learn about being a doctor/working in modern healthcare? What did you learn about your own suitability to be a doctor? How did your experiences cement your desire to become a doctor

个人陈述中比你做了什么更关键的是你能证明你从经历中汲取到了经验:当你在一个现代医疗中心工作时,你经历并收获了什么?当你在适应成为一名医生的过程,你收获了什么?你的类似经历又是怎样一步步强化你期待成为一名医生的憧憬与希望?

 

物理学

Todd Huffman,玛格丽特夫人学堂物理学教授

“The biggest mistake that students make in their personal statements is when they list books they have read,but then,in interview,seem incapable of telling us anything about the books. Remember,we might well have read those books too!

学生犯的最大的错误在于,他们会在个人陈述中陈列出他们所浏览过的书单,在之后的面试中,他们却无法告诉我们对于读书后的感想。记住,我们或许也认真读过此类书籍。

“So if you do list books that you read that you either found interesting or inspired you,make sure you re-read them shortly before your interview so that you can talk about them.And it might be good,if you list any at all,to only limit yourself to one or two books. Personally,If I were writing a personal statement I would not list any books at all.“”

因此,假设你真要罗列书单,罗列那些你感兴趣的或者对你有影响的。确保在面试前你能够简略地重温一遍,这样你能够和面试官交六你阅读的书单。假设你想罗列书单,请只列出1至2本。就我个人而言,倘若我来编撰自己的PS,我根本就不会进行书单的罗列。
