读书计划/个人陈述 (PERSONAL STATEMENT或STATEMENT OF PURPOSE)

读书计划是在申请过程中按照学校的要求来写一篇有关申请人过去背景,目前成就和未来目标的文章,一篇成功的读书计划不但应语言流畅,且文章逻辑严谨,层次分明,能充分显示申请人的才华并抓住审阅人的注意力。要写出这样的文章,既使对于母语为英语的澳大利亚人来说都是十分不易的,更不要说对于母语为非英语的中国学生。但是澳大利亚的学校在读书计划这项材料上并不对中国学生降低要求,他们认为既然申请人被录取后会与澳大利亚学生一起学习,那么就应用同样的标准衡量国际学生,一篇成功优秀的读书计划不仅仅要求文法上没有错误,还要求语言流畅并具有感染力与吸引力,同时要说明自己的整体素质与学术成就,这的确不是一件容易的事。许多学生为了写一篇优秀的读书计划要花上一个月的时间,这并不奇怪。

然而,写好一篇读书计划并非很难,首先我们要明白审阅这篇读书计划的人想要知道什么,审阅人最看重什么,什么样的读书计划才算是出色的。然后我们才可以根据自己的情况写出这篇文章。

读书计划可以分为两种不同的类型:

一种是总括型读书计划,这种类型的读书计划实质上是一种个人散文(Essay),即用最大的广度、最可能的深度来介绍申请人的情况,无论是背景、现状、还是未来。这种类型的读书计划被广泛应用于医学院、法学院等研究生院中。

另一种是专业型读书计划,这类读书计划往往着重介绍申请人在某学业或事业领域上的成就与见解,在一种小范围内尽可能详尽他说明自己的情况,这种类型的读书计划常在商学院的申请人中见到。

无论是采取哪种类型的读书计划,申请者都一定要了解清楚学校需要申请人回答什么样的问题,是单一的对未来学习生活的展望与计划,还是全面的介绍自己各方面情况。

许多学校不要求提供读书计划,或是不规定读书计划的内容与形式,这样的学校也应备一份连同申请材料寄去。如果不规定具体形式,就把文章重点放在有利字自己申请的一个或几个方面上。一所澳大利亚名牌大学的招生办主任对读书计划的看法是:我们仅仅是想让申请人回答一个问题,就是“你认为我们应了解你哪些方面是最重要的”。假如你需要5分钟去面对一位审核官员说明这些,那么你在这5分钟内所说的内容就是读书计划。

从澳大利亚大学对读书计划的看法中我们可以对它有一个概括的认识,知道了读书计划应该写哪些内容,针对具体情况,我们建议在写读书计划之前首先考虑以下几个问题:

在你的经历中,有哪些独特与吸引人的地方,哪些你生活中的细节(家庭、历史、影响你人生的事件)能够使审阅人较好地了解你,并认为你与众不同。

你何时开始对你所学的专业产生兴趣,为什么感兴趣,当时你对它的认识是什么。

如今你对你申请的专业了解有多深,你的奋斗目标是什么。

如果你的成绩(大学成绩、标准考试成绩)不很理想,你是否需要为此解释一下。

你曾经克服过什么困难,有什么样的经历、技能或优点。

你为什么会选择这所大学。 回答以上所有的问题并不容易,但至少有一半的问题对申请是很重要的。许多人并没有经过仔细的回顾,往往一些很相关的方面都被忽略了。审核人阅读一篇读书计划的目的,是为了能够全面地了解申请人,最糟糕的事情是你的读书计划令审阅人感到厌烦,而这却是大多数申请人正在做的事。

考虑完这几个问题之后,就需要真正着手去写了,这时我们应注意的是:

这篇读书计划在为哪所学校而写,这所学校有没有内容上的规定,如果有,规定是哪些

你正在准备的是一篇个人读书计划,无论从哪个角度来写都要突出文章的独特性,而不能模棱两可。

有选择性地选择材料,详细说明有利于奖学金申请的材料,去掉与主题无关的材料,也不要加入太多的细节,否则会导致评审意见被引入一个误区。

无论在谈及成功还是失败,都需要保持一种乐观的态度与口吻。尽管一些过去的失败与挫折会在一定程度和方面上被认为是不利,但是如果能仍然树立起一种自信和认真,那是很令人欣赏的。

如果你的生活没有太多的与众不同,那么选择一个新颖的角度来写。

第一段就抓住审阅人的注意,适当以与众不同的形式表现,但不要过分。

如果你申请了几所不同学校,你是否写了不同的读书计划。审阅人如果感到你的读书计划是完全的空谈,那么会把整个材料否定的。如墨尔本大学(University of Melbourne)招生办主任在谈到读书计划时说:“最令我们失望的是,当我们在阅读一篇读书计划时,我们十分清楚这名申请人对我们学校一无所知,而可以把这篇文章寄到全澳大利亚的各个大学。”以上几点是在写读书计划是应当注意的,如果注意到这些,写一篇优秀的读书计划就并不是那么难了。

To Whom It May Concern:

Re: Application of Student Visa to study in RMIT University

In additional to all my documents provided, I would like to take this opportunity to write a personal statement to clarify the main reasons that drive me to study in Australia.

I was born in 1981, the starting period of China's economy reform designed and implemented under the leadership of Mr. De Xiaoping. I have witnessed the dramatic changes in the continuous infrastructure construction, observable improvement of living standards, greater enrichment of social life, gradual deregulation of policies and strong growth of local economy. All the positive sides make everybody fond of the market economy, especially my parents, both of who are managers of property development companies. My parents have great influence on me, so when I was young, I start to learn how to keep abreast of the modern society by learning the new knowledge and skills.

The world is already heading toward the new economy, although there are still some turmoil in certain fields and period. The explosive information technology changed the world in such quick and significant manners that many economists can't explain well. Meanwhile, China is joining WTO, the economy at this moment is growing at 8% annually, by further eliminating non-tariff barriers and reduce tariff rates, China's market will experience huge structural changes and countless opportunities will emerge to make China the hottest spot in the world economy. As a Chinese student, I am living in a new age that China is in shortage of personnel with proficient English skills, overseas education background and capability to merge east and west cultures.

By choosing to study in RMIT University in Melbourne Australia, there are a few advantages that I can achieve my goal:

Australia is a multicultural country, and RMIT university is a well-known multicultural university. I can learn how to interact within different cultures to improve my interpersonal skills. I also can build up a network that comprises friends from different countries and areas.

Australia enjoys vast land, abundant resources, mild weather and well-managed security, it is the best destination to study.

Australia has the world class educational systems, and RMIT university is well-know for its practical mission and provident objectives. By learning its IT courses, I can become an IT professional recognised in Australia and China and other places as I will have obtained professional IT skills.

Australia has good relationship with China and Australia is also changing its old economy image by actively engaged into cooperation between APEC countries and regions. China is certainly the biggest potential market for Australia. With my multicultual background and Australian experience and skills, when I have completed study in Australia and returns China, I can participate into the development of business cooperation or any other relationship

In short, by choosing to study in RMIT University in Australia, I will benefit greatly from the extraordinary experience for building up my professional career, and I will help to build China, my motherland, into a well-managed market economy country.

I look forward that my application can be assessed and approved at your earliest convenience!

Regards!

已经成功的读书计划范例(环境保护)

Two scenes stand out in my mind from my visit to Brazil's Wetland: Forests burning before seed planting and trees as hedgerows. Before the planting season, I could see the leafless remnants of burnt trees still standing. The burning of pristine forests destroys both the habitats and countless species which depend on and thrive in these habitats. The few remaining bare, scarred trees silently convey the cost to our natural resources of pursuing our economic interests. Some forests are preserved by government edict issued in response to international pressure. But most of this preservation occurs alongside major roads — not to protect the ecosystem, but to prevent disturbance to ranches and farms along the highways. The clash between economic and environmental concerns that I witnessed in Brazil fascinates me and attracts me to the Environmental Studies Program.

Two courses in my geography department increased my interest in the connection between the environment and economics: Conservation of Underdeveloped Countries and Environmental Impact Analysis. In the former, we studied the problems of natural resource management in developing countries. The balance is always tilted toward economics growth at the expense of environmental preservation. For example, because the Pantanal Wetland could become a highly productive agricultural system once it’s drained, it is drained regardless of the destruction that drainage causes to the ecosystem. Only portions of the wetland are preserved for tourist purposes.

The other course that piqued my interest is an interdisciplinary course called Environmental Impact Analysis in which we, as a group, created matrix and flow diagrams discussing the economic and environmental impact of logging and preservation of old growth forests. I was able to use tools that I acquired in my economics and environmental studies classes. In general, logging creates economic benefits at the local level. It increases employment in the timber industry and subsequently in related non-timber industries; it also benefits local government. Yet, it has great deleterious environmental effects: soil erosion, watershed destruction, and a decrease in specie diversity due to loss of habitat. The logging industry represents the classic clash between economic and environmental interests.

I also took two sequential classes in the economics department that are related to Resource Management — Theories of Growth Development and Policies for Economic Development. Because the courses were taught by a professor who is concerned chiefly with economic growth, I learned the standard economic rationalizations for development unrestrained by environmental concerns.

In addition to my interest in resource management policies, I have a specific interest in Geographical Information System (GIS), a powerful tool for natural resource management. After taking several related classes in GIS, I began interning for the National Park Service (NPS). After I learn how to use ARC/INFO, a leading GIS package, I will assist the NPS in constructing projects. Some of my duties include spatial and non-spatial data analysis, digitizing themes such as fire locations, vegetation, wildlife habitats, etc., and tabular and graphical presentation of results. I hope to use the tools I acquire during this internship in my continuing study of our environment.

I would like to study the social and economic factors that influence environmental policy formation. For example, because people worry more about pollution than endangered species, laws and regulations concerning environmental pollution are more numerous and stricter than for bio-diversity. Within the School of Environmental Studies, I have a particular interest in the emphasis: Economics, Policy, and Management. This emphasis deals with how economic factors can create negative externalities, such as pollution, and need to be regulated. This emphasis also tries to consider non-economic values, such as aesthetic pleasure and specie diversity. It also discusses tools like GIS and system analysis that apply to environmental management. Because of my interest in GIS, economics, and environmental studies, this emphasis suits me perfectly. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary approach of the School of Environmental Studies attracts me since it combines social science’s strengths with a knowledge of the natural sciences necessary to protect and preserve the environment.

After completing my masters program, I would like to continue my education and obtain a Ph.D. in natural resource management. This degree would enable me to combine a teaching career with advising business and government on natural resource management issues. Teaching college students is more than a one-way channel; I would also learn from their questions like my professors have from mine. In advising business and government, I can help them strike a balance between economic and environmental concerns. GIS will be a useful tool in helping me give them crucial information.

I have enjoyed an interdisciplinary approach in my environmental studies major and become fascinated by the clash between social interests, especially economics, and environmental needs. I pursued an additional major in economics to better understand this conflict. Furthermore, my work for the NPS will train me in the latest techniques in natural resource management. I would like to continue exploring this clash and resource management in the School of Environmental Studies. Ultimately, I would like to teach and work in natural resource management. Ideally, I would like to find ways for allowing development while preventing the burning of beautiful and valuable eco-systems like the Pantanal Wetland.
