  个人陈述就是常说的PS,即Personal Statement或者Statement of purpose。个人陈述的另外几种英文表述方法:statements of purpose; academic statement;study plan; plans for study;academic objectives;educational goals;letter of interests.

  个人陈述的内容应包含下列三项数据:

  申请者的学术或专业兴趣及背景 academic achievement

  欲研究的方向 research interest

  未来的职业目标 future plan

  写作时,可以按照三点将文章分为数段。不要像列清单,也不要重复申请表格已有的数据。个人陈述在整个申请材料的准备中占据了举足轻重的地位,也有必要赢得众位申请者的充分重视。 当申请者其他方面欠缺时,一份出类拔萃的个人陈述却有可能让从众多申请者中脱颖而出,甚至获得全额奖学金。在某些学校,个人陈述已经代替了面试,作为评价学生的一个重要依据。

于娟遗著《此生未完成》介绍

 

再远的飞行也要着陆,再长的旅行总会回家。2011年4月19日凌晨三时许,于娟辞世。几番生死,顽强抗争到底;下笔万言,留下《此生未完成》一书。

《此生未完成》再现了一个普通人未完成的一生,和一个普通人创造的生命奇迹。于娟以她诚挚的文字,讲述了病中所见的人事,病痛的苦楚,她对生命的感悟,她对父母、丈夫、儿子割舍不去的亲情。也讲述了那些散落在她身后的时光,她与姥姥之间的动人故事,她在挪威的求学生涯,她的童年,她周边朋友的故事。

于娟以文字记录下了她生命的痕迹,也在告诉生者,要好好活着,好好爱护身边的每一个人。

 

本书由中南出版传媒集团出品,上海世代文化策划编辑、湖南科技出版社出版发行。

——秉承“因良善而崇高”理念的中南传媒,将本书列为集团2011年度重点图书,面向全国,推出新时期的心灵励志书。在本书的制作上,采取高投入低定价的方式,不以盈利为目的,力争创造最好的社会效益,为大众提供深刻的阅读体验。

——本书的主要销售利润所得的一部分,依出版方与著作权人约定,将用于于娟遗愿“公益能源林”的建设,为实现于娟遗愿,为中国的公益和能源事业,尽一份力量。

 

一个人. 一本书. 一片林 - 于娟 - 活着就是王道

 

 

 

附二:

于娟的遗愿:山东曲阜能源林项目

 

当年于娟去挪威学习环境经济,中间死说活说要让妈妈也来欧洲看看,不惜每天半夜四点在及膝的大雪中送报纸攒钱。在女儿居住的奥斯陆湖边,她们看到郁郁葱葱的挪威的森林。女儿说,“好不?”妈妈说,“真好。”“我们把挪威森林搬回去吧!”

——摘自《三联生活周刊》2011年第12期《于娟和她的生命日记》

 

一个美丽的生命和一片树林紧紧联系在一起。

于娟生前曾在挪威奥斯陆留学,专业从事生物质能源政策研究,并对挪威的森林情有独钟。回国后,她曾反复思考发展能源林对于绿化、碳汇、可再生能源、山区脱贫的重要意义。在于娟的规划中,希望能结合她在学校的项目研究,在家乡山东济宁建立一个能源林研究基地,深入研究以黄连木(楷木)为代表的能源林推广栽种的投入、产出,对项目的社会效益和经济效益进行定量化评估,了解并解决其中的关键技术问题和政策问题,以推动能源林在山东和全国范围的发展。她生前和复旦、挪威的导师均讨论过这个想法并得到支持,还多次与母亲提起如何将其付诸于实践。

 

于娟提到的能源林树种黄连木,又名楷(音“皆”)木,传说是孔子弟子子贡奔丧时,带到曲阜去的;他守墓多年,种植了楷木,并用楷木雕刻了孔子形象。楷木是山东曲阜孔林中最著名的树种。《说文·木部》:“楷,楷木也。孔子冢盖树之者。”《清朝野史大观·清人逸事一·孔东塘出山异数记》:“ 孔林草木……惟楷木蓍草二种最著。上问:‘楷木何所用之?’ 尚任(孔尚任 )奏曰:‘其木可为杖,又可为棋,其木之癭可为瓢,其叶可为蔬,又可为茶,其子榨油可为膏烛。’”

黄连木(楷木)是能源树木中的一种,喜光,幼时稍耐荫;喜温暖,畏严寒;耐干旱瘠薄,对土壤要求不严,微酸性、中性和微碱性的沙质、粘质土均能适应,而以在肥沃、湿润而排水良好的石灰岩山地生长最好,深根性,主根发达,抗风力强;萌芽力强。黄连木生长较慢,寿命可长达300年以上,是城市及风景区的优良绿化树种。它树冠浑圆,枝叶繁茂而秀丽,早春嫩叶红色,入秋叶又变成深红或橙黄色,红色的雌花序也极美观,宜作庭荫树、行道树及山林风景树,也常作“四旁”绿化及低山区造林树种。黄连木材质优良耐腐性强,是名贵的雕刻、装饰及家具用材。

最关键的是,黄连木作为油料能源林,可以利用林木及其果实所含油脂等,将其转化为生物柴油或其它化工替代产品。黄连木的果实含油率在35%左右,种子含油率在25%左右,2.5吨黄连木种子可以生产1吨生物柴油。因此,黄连木全株利用潜力大,用途广泛,具有很高的产业发展价值。

 

无论从社会还是从经济的调度来说,发展能源林都是一件功在当代,利在千秋的大事。

发展能源林有利于促进经济社会可持续发展,保障能源安全。我国人多地少的国情决定了不能以农作物为主生产生物质能源,而丰富的林地资源可以培育生产液体燃料的原料林,是构建安全经济清洁能源供应体系的重要环节。

发展能源林有利于改善生态,保护环境。生物柴油不仅无毒,还能生物降解。一般情况下汽油中添加20%的生物柴油可减少排放二氧化硫70%,降低90%的空气毒性。发展生物能源林还有增加森林覆盖、构建多种功能森林生态系统、吸收二氧化碳的碳汇作用。

发展能源林有利于促进农村经济发展,增加农民收入。林地大多处于经济欠发达的偏远山区,能源林具有一次栽植、长期受益的特点,发展以果实加工为原料的生物质能源林,可以吸收当地农民就业,并与农民共享经济收益。

1950年代,美国科学家就开始对野生油脂植物的开发利用进行研究,从油料植物中提取碳氢化合物, 分离、加工成石油替代产品。瑞典在1980年代提出“能源林业”的概念,将发展能源林作为一项国策,把1/6现有林用作能源林,其2005年生物质能源已占能源总量的17%。英国亦辟出8万公顷土地,专门用于发展能源林。

我国政府高度重视生物质能源发展。2005年颁布实施的《中华人民共和国可再生能源法》将包括生物柴油在内的生物质液体燃料的发展,列入我国经济发展规划,政府对液体生物质燃料的生产实行鼓励和支持。《全国林业生物质能源发展规划(2011~2020年)》提出我国能源林面积规划达到2000万公顷;每年转化的林业生物质能可替代2025万吨标煤的石化能源。国家林业局编制的《全国能源林建设规划》计划到2020年,全国将培育2亿亩高产优质能源林基地,可以满足每年600多万吨生物柴油和装机容量1500多万千瓦的发电原料需求。国家支持生物能源发展的主要政策措施包括:建立风险基金制度,对企业实行弹性亏损补贴;鼓励开发荒山、荒地等未利用的资源建设原料基地;进行示范补助;实施税收优惠政策。

 

“如果我去了,在上海火化,然后把我的骨灰带回山东,在那片我曾经试图搞能源林的曲阜山坡地里随便找个地方埋了,至少那里有虫鸣鸟叫清溪绿树,不要让我留着上海这种水泥森林里做孤魂野鬼。”这是2009年末于娟第一次生死寄于一线时告诉妈妈的话。2011年4月19日凌晨告别这个世界之前,她重申最后的愿望:希望葬到山东的能源林,希望看到后来人把能源林项目做成、做好、做大。

为了实现她的遗愿,于娟家人和朋友正在积极同山东省、济宁市有关政府部门、当地农村合作社、复旦大学相关项目课题组、挪威奥斯陆大学相关项目课题组、上海交通大学材料学院环保与能源材料研究室、中国旅挪专家学者联合会等机构进行沟通,对项目运作模式、团队组建、参与方式、运作步骤等进行详细规划。作为一个论证摸索过程中的项目,我们希望广大关心于娟、关心环保与能源事业的朋友们能够给予持续的关注和支持,尤其能从各个方面给出可行性的建议和意见。我们的邮箱是godoveyujuan@163.com,“活着就是王道”的新浪和网易博客(http://blog.sina.com.cn/yujuanfudan,http://yujuanfudan.blog.163.com/)以及“复旦教师抗癌微博”(http://t.sina.com.cn/1758970411/profile)都将继续下去,作为支持这个公益项目的平台。

 

于娟走了,但她的灵魂依然寄托在故乡的能源林上。或者,她已经化作一颗破土而出的楷木,在向你我迎风微笑……

Personal Statement

2009-10-25 22:36:32 阅读6531 评论0 252009/10 Oct25

Since the start of my teenage years, I have developed a strong interest in Politics, current affairs and the way in which our economy operates. As I've become more mature, my interests have intensified. Despite only being 17 I've lived through a second Gulf War, mass terrorist attacks and a recently established economic recession. It is through such incidents that my pre-conceptions of the society we live in have been constantly challenged and created. Studying Modern Studies in 5th year further fuelled my passion for Politics, and developed my knowledge of current affairs both domestically and internationally. It has also complemented my strong interest in the business world and the economy as a whole, therefore influencing my decision to pursue a Politics or Business degree.
My interest in Politics extends beyond academic subjects. I often spend time debating certain aspects of Politics with friends and family alike, and due to the diversity of opinion that Politics offers I find myself continually re-evaluating my own opinions. As a subject, Politics enthrals me like no other. It influences everything that occurs in our society from the news we read to the social class we derive from. Due to this I feel that Politics as a discipline is too powerful to overlook.
My strong interest in Business stems from reading stories of respected entrepreneurs. My interest was further enhanced after attending a Business conference at Napier University. At the conference we had to create a Business idea within small groups and present it to fellow peers with the intention of competing against other schools. This gave me an insight into the skills required to succeed in Business and the competition and complexity of Modern Business.
My current 6th year subjects will help me establish a good platform for my university course of choice. I chose to study Media as it coincides with both Politics and Business equally, and because it can influence all areas of society, in particular voting behaviour. Also studying Administration will develop my knowledge of Business and how IT is progressively used in organisations to aid decision making and how it can create new markets and opportunities.
I've obtained a broad work experience through a variety of different roles which have helped me to understand Business from an internal perspective, and see the effectiveness of marketing and media exposure in terms of maximising profitability. As well as enhancing my interest in Business, my previous roles have provided me with excellent team working and communication skills and the experience of prioritising my time whilst working in a fast-paced and demanding environment.
Within school I'm a member of the pupil council and Events committee. Each role demonstrates that I'm a trustworthy and responsible individual who can generate and implement many constructive ideas within a team based environment. As well as being on these committees I was also privileged to be assigned the role of Pastoral Prefect which requires me to give educational help and guidance to younger pupils. In this role I have to display a high level of maturity and patience and the ability to adapt to the individual circumstances of each pupil.
Outside of academia my main interests lie in sport particularly Football, having played at Academy level for a premier league club for over 4 years. As well as Football I enjoy indulging in other sports such as Tennis and Golf. When not playing sports my interests are quite varied and cover a wide spectrum of activities from reading to music to socialising with friends.
My balance of schoolwork, sporting activities, work and maintaining a social life indicates that I have the ability to manage my time effectively, and that I can cope with a busy lifestyle. My previous experiences, motivation and will to succeed further connotes that I have the ability to meet the demands of studying at degree level.

A trip to Mexico at age twelve sparked my interest in the social sciences. The level of poverty and governmental corruption jarred me whilst there, and thus my determination to understand why social injustice occurs and how to combat it formed. From this, a fascination with politics and society emerged.

As a result, I browsed through texts such as "Globalization and Human Rights" by Alison Brysk, read lectures like Amartya Sen's "Global Inequality and Human Security" and explored books introducing me to political philosophy, sociology and psychology - all of which helped me try to understand the root of world problems. Brysk's book enabled me to discover the link between globalisation and human rights violations worldwide. I realised that while certain forms of globalisation have had positive effects on developing countries, there's still a strong discrepancy between its so-called "winners and losers".Watching John Pilger's "War on Democracy" provided gripping evidence of this in Bolivia, where multinational corporations at one point managed to asset strip the country's water supply. In addition, I found Sen's lecture particularly persuasive,and agreed with him that whilst globalisation has lessened poverty and not made "the poor any poorer", it's still unjust that the impoverished receive only a piece - and not the fair share of -the cumulative benefits of globalisation.

Furthermore, researching the works of political philosophers such as Machiavelli and reading books like "Affluenza" by Oliver James helped me explore the reasons why wealthy nations allow social injustice to take place and, at times,even indirectly encourage it. Machiavelli's philosophy "the end justifies the means" reflects the attitude rich nations seem to have towards developing countries. "Affluenza" discusses the obsession with materialism in order to provide self-worth,paradoxically at the expense of one's mental health and well-being of others -this being seen in globalisation's effects on developing countries.

My passion for human rights and politics was further supplemented by my participation in humanitarian initiatives such as Amnesty International,as well as in my other extra-curricular activities. In high school, I was the president and founder of an Amnesty International group.This experience taught me how NGOs work and helped me to understand globalisation's positive effects on third-world countries -NGOs like Amnesty being one of them. In addition, inspired by a trip to Rwanda two years after its 1994 genocide,I led the group on a campaign to end the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. My interest in Darfur remains, and I'm currently reading "Darfur: A New History of a Long War" to better understand the conflict. Furthermore, we worked on campaigns to end violence against women - initiating my interest in feminism - and ending the use of torture in the War on Terror.This specific campaign convinced me America shouldn't have entered Iraq as the reasons for doing so were both ambiguous and dubious.Watching Charles Ferguson's "No End in Sight",where those involved in the initial Iraqi occupation authority express disillusionment with the Bush administration, has strengthened this belief. Finally, I debated for my high school's debate club and wrote for its nationally award-winning newspaper, writing pieces where the topics ranged from mental health issues to terrorism.I received a letter of commendation from a local newspaper reporter for the latter.

I enjoy a variety of activities in my spare time. I love to travel, as is evident from my transatlantic background, and have visited most of the continents. I like learning languages,and am presently refreshing my Spanish skills in addition to teaching myself some basic Hindi. Literature is a particular passion of mine, having helped form my previous school's literary magazine.I am also interested in social psychology, and am currently researching the psychology behind consumerism.

The unpredictability of politics is what makes it such a fascinating subject for me. A particular topic that sparked my interest is the extremely volatile relationship between one established superpower and one rising giant: the USA and India. The relationship between these two nations has been completely transformed in recent years following India's globalisation and development of nuclear arms. This is highly significant today as India is representative
of an increasing number of rapidly expanding and politically-insecure nations arming themselves with nuclear weapons. My curiosity about their relationship led me to read Mira Kamdar's 'Planet India' which has given me a detailed insight into the political pressures India faces from much of the Western world. I especially enjoyed reading about Pokhran-II, when India defied the existing nuclear powers by successfully engineering the testing of nuclear devices in 1998, significantly weakening the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The political precariousness generated by acts such as this makes the study of politics in the current century more vital and relevant than ever before.

"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it". Marx's statement reflects the importance of being involved in politics, and inspired me to join both the pressure group Libertarian UK and the Conservative Party. I joined the latter primarily in response to my feelings on the different party reactions to the current economic crisis. The Conservative response, demonstrated by the proposal to tax non-domiciled residents, has ostensibly been more concerned with promoting social 'fairness' than some of
Labour's recent policies (particularly the initial abolition of the 10p tax band), perhaps indicating a subversion of traditional left/right politics. To widen my political knowledge, I completed an internship at the Labour Party HQ and constituency office of Karen Buck MP. It gave me a valuable insight into the relationship between national and constituency level politics, and I was responsible for communicating with governmental departments and quangos.

I also attended a debate in the House of Lords which focused on the implementation of ID cards. This matter brings to the fore the question of our civil rights in relation to the state and whether an increasing amount of authoritarian legislation can be justified. Additionally, I participated in a Model United Nations where I represented the delegation of Malaysia on the Security Council. I enjoyed the opportunity to research foreign policy and
debate major issues such as the expansion of the ASEAN. The excitement of the London Mayoral election in May encouraged me to represent Boris Johnson in my school's mock Mayoral election where I was able to refine my public speaking and campaigning skills. I also run my school's History and Politics Society, through which I have organised and attended many lectures given by MPs and MEPs, such as the Shadow Secretary of State for International Development.

My love of languages prompted me to study French A-level where, in my oral, I examined the destruction of the French aristocracy and the birth of a democratic government. In Economics and Politics, I enjoy exploring fiscal policy and both its political and social repercussions.

I have completed Bronze, Silver and recently Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. I ran Football Club and Modern Languages Club at school, which considerably improved my leadership skills. On a weekly basis I volunteer at Oxfam and also visit a pensioner. Volunteering demonstrates the significant role that civilians can play in shaping a responsible and compassionate society. I was working with the very people whose lives are most affected by government policy, those for whom political direction is most important.

I live in Pakistan-a country destroying itself with bombs,guns and governments' blabber to find justifications for what it is going through;a country where a former president is murdered in public,where the nation's constitution and parliament are suspended at the same time,and where the voice of a common man is unheard.

Since the last few years, I had aspired to become a doctor.The idea of "scalpels," "opened chests" and "sutures" had always intrigued me.And then it happened!The recent unprecedented events in my country wiped off the dust of disillusionment from my eyes;I lost my will to become a doctor.However,the turmoil in the country led me towards newspapers and news channels,and hence Politics.

As I involved myself into politics,I realized that it is all-embracive-wielding its way over social and economic life-it is the omnipotent of Pakistan.It can mobilize public opinion,gear up propaganda machinery,make or repeal laws and what not.Backed up by public opinion,supported by the majority of the legislators,armed with the means to keep the people in a state of ignorance,political power crosses the limits of dictatorial powers.Political power,like the most powerful intoxicant,makes the persons in power to forget social ethics,political morality and obligations.

Most of the learned youth in this country consider Politics to be "a refuge for the scoundrels" and this derogatory remark may be true if we look at the deceptive and degenerated type of politicians indulging in a dirty game.All these political parties are votaries of democracy,but the way they conduct themselves inside their own parties is nothing but senseless authoritarianism.Therefore a very few students choose to pursue Politics as a profession,but what they don't realize is that if we don't take a stand the system can never be changed.Thus,I want to study Politics so I can come back to my country and contribute what little I can do for my homeland and its people.If I can inspire even a single person,it would be worth it.The world today is growing global.We are now not only to think of our own nation but as and when we think of it,we have to keep the international perception in mind;consequently,I chose Politics with International Relations as one of my courses.

Studying in UK will breed a sense of individuality and self reliance.I would be able to interact with people from everywhere and get to know about their culture.This would not only open new horizons for me,but would also clear some preconceived notions one has about the other.I have always been an active participant of debates.I have participated in 3 Model UN conferences out of which I was awarded with the Best Delegate award in two. I was also one of the two students to be selected from my school to participate in the English Speaking Union '08.Moreover, I've taken part in Parliamentary style debates too.Therefore I believe I can communicate effectively in public and language will not be a barrier in my education.Furthermore, I have worked as an internee at Al-Shifa Eye Hospital for a month in summers.Here I learnt how to deal with patients,use the Auto Ref, handle files and punctuality.We also campaigned to a remote area near Murree where we helped the doctors in examining the patients free of cost.Another experience which taught me a lot was when me and my fellow colleagues volunteered to paint walls for the SOS Children's Village.In addition,I worked with SUNGI (NGO) where a group of 5 of us had to organize an event to pay tribute to 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I enjoy Literature,especially the works of Shakespeare,Tennessee Williams,Thomas Hardy and Andrew Marvell.I'd be delighted to study in a challenging atmosphere where I can focus on my studies.I commit to my work and my ability to think out of the box,keenness for Politics and my perception of things,I understand,gives me an edge over others.I believe in myself,and if provided with an opportunity,I'd make the university proud.

Edmund Burkes quotation 'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing' illustrates a cornerstone of my moral compass and above all, passion for Political Science. Once ignorant to the terror and destruction untouched evil can bring, my veil of innocence was uncovered when a young Yugoslavian immigrant displaced by the Balkan conflict fled to the UK. Together as friends, he and I grew up discussing the rational behind the war, questioning his parents and recalling his own personal experience, which gave me a valuable insight to the terrors of war and how unnecessarily destructive in can be. In order to find satisfactory answers I was looking for I researched thoroughly, reading the fall of Yugoslavia and more recently the Balkans, 1804-1999 by Misha Glenny.

As I discovered more about the effects of war, my passion for politics and peace intensified. From this my political perspectives were broadened, matured, and became rational. I learned the significance of the dialectical relationship of people, and how their ideas and actions shape domestic and foreign politics, in addition to our everyday lives. The domination of historic feuds fronted by the ideals of nationalism in Yugoslavia, the actions of Milosevic and the intervention of NATO, instigated a chain of events that brought my friend and me together. Ironically the ideologies of nationalism and intergovernmentalism are reflected in my interest in European Politics, supported by my reading of Democracy in the EU by Vivien A. Schmidt, European integration theory by Antje Wiener and regular viewing of Youtube's EU commission broadcasts.

My A-level studies have enhanced my aptitude to objectively debate and analyse, with a degree of reason and logic, empowering me to weigh arguments from varying perspectives. For instance, I questioned the morality of our leaders in denouncing nation's undemocratic institutions, while we retained our own, such as the queen and House of Lords. Thus I decided to research the historical and political context of constitutional government. As a result I read John Locke's two treatises of Government and while agreeing with his refute of monarchism, found Vernon Bogdanor's case for British constitutional government compelling, in The Monarchy and the Constitution. Around my academic studies, I believe in the importance of maintaining a high caliber of political sensibility. To achieve this I watch Question Time and The Politics Show, as well as reading informative material such as the Guardian and Socialist Review Online.

Believing in the idiom 'Practice what you preach' encourages me to take an active role in society. Twice elected as class rep and student council member, my responsibility in debating policies that effect students and relaying their opinions to senior management has ensured my use of diplomacy and communication. Chosen as a regional volunteer for the British Youth Council, I've had to exercise my interpersonal and oral skills by participating in conferences ranging from the media's role in fabricating negative stereotypes of youth and crime to the age discrimination of the 16, 18 and 21 minimal wages. Winner of this year LSC competition gave me the opportunity to work for the MP of Birmingham Perry Bar, where I was given a tour of Westminster palace and among his political team discussed the application of public choice theory to analysing electorate and politicians decisions, debated the judgement of Tony Blair's intervention in Bosnia compared to Iraq and its consequences to future humanitarian intervention in Sudan.

Armed with my natural affinity with politics, evolving knowledge and inquisitive mindset, I'm determined to continue to question, discover and understand the political world I live in. To learn the ideas behind human actions and the collective society, and its consequences to the global community and individual, at university, would be a privilege and a welcomed challenge.

PS范文

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my studies during my time in the Sixth Form, but of Politics, English and General Studies, I have found Politics to be especially rewarding and am looking forward to studying it more deeply at university. However my other A-Level choices have given me skills that I can use while studying at university. English gives me plenty of practice at planned writing and meeting deadlines for pieces of work. I also get the chance to do comparative writing which has complemented the work I have done in my Politics lessons so far. In General Studies we are encouraged to keep up to date with current events and I get a chance to develop my advocacy skills during our regular class discussions, which I relish the chance to participate in.

In my politics course, I was particularly interested in the work we did on voting behaviour in the United Kingdom. It was fascinating to examine the different reasons why people choose not to vote and the reasons people vote the way they do depending on social factors. It seemed particularly relevant to me as I am approaching voting age and it gave me the opportunity to look at my own political ideologies and willingness to participate in the political system. Another topic that interested me was individual rights within the United States and United Kingdom. I wrote an essay comparing the ways in which the two countries protected civil rights which was quite challenging as it required me to research the topic in detail on my own and select the most relevant points to include within the one thousand two hundred word limit. I decided to look at the ways in which the constitutions of each country provided for peoples civil rights and the differences between them, the impact of terrorism on legislation relating to individual liberties and the issues surrounding abortion. Overall I was very proud of the essay and it received a grade A upon being marked. Ia??d like to think that the way I approach doing pieces of work such as this is very thorough and that I perform well independently.

To supplement my work in class on American politics I have read relevant documents by the Congressional Research Service that can be found on their website. This reading has given me a much broader and fuller understanding of the ways in which the American system works and ita??s political culture. I also attended a lecture given by Robert Tuttle, the American ambassador to the UK at De Montfort University in October 2007. In his talk he outlined the issues he considered to currently be the most important and pressing global issues, these were: climate change, world poverty and extremism. It was an enlightening talk and gave me a lot of insight into the work of the US government that I wasna??t aware of previously. It also sparked off a lot of questions in my mind about globalisation and international relations that I think could be explored during my time at university.

Separate from my studies, I participated in a workshop within Sixth Form where I worked in a team to develop an educational childrena??s toy and give a presentation on it. The entire experience was very enriching and I would love to do something similar in the future if the chance arose. The workshop allowed me to develop my skills in team work, research, presentation, public speaking and organisation. In my spare time, I enjoy playing football, swimming, reading and painting; at university Ia??d hope to continue these interests.

Once my degree is complete I would perhaps like to pursue a career in journalism or in government. I think that a degree in politics would give me the chance to develop the skills necessary to succeed in these professions. However, my main motivation for taking a Politics degree is my passion for the subject.

Personal Statement - Politics

2009-10-25 22:34:25 阅读3784 评论0 252009/10 Oct25

I have always wanted to understand more about the world - not about its physical form or its surface, but about the people in it and the reasons why we have come to live the way we do - the reasons for conflict, government decisions and economic developments.

World politics as a whole and relationships between countries particularly interest me, and I am intrigued by the effects of the media on current affairs. Reading Hugh Miles' 'Al-Jazeera' made me realise how influential television and the Internet have become with their worldwide audience. My awareness of international relations was heightened when I took part in a Model UN conference in March '07. This, as well as being an excellent way to experience team work and improve my public speaking skills, left me wanting to consider large issues such as Third World Aid with a more informed mind and to question pre-conceived conclusions.

I would relish being able to make my decisions and ideas better thought out by studying philosophy. Reading Sartre's lecture on Existentialism and Humanism widened my appreciation of the subject and I am keen now to explore other writers and schools of thought. Completing coursework on the Stalinist regime in the 1930s Soviet Union was a wonderful opportunity to delve deeper into the reasons and ideology behind massive political and economic upheaval. This led me to link my personal reading with politics through Orwell's 'Animal Farm'. In Spring '08 I am going on a trip to Russia with my school which should provide considerable insight into such a politically contentious country, and shed new light on Putin's Russia which I have enjoyed reading about in 'The Economist'.

Taking part in the Bank of England's 'Target 2.0' challenge has emphasised how fascinating theories can be when applied to real scenarios. It has also made me consider the influence of monetary policy and the necessity of intervention in an economy. The experience of working in a group with my peers and applying what we are learning from A Level Economics, and have learned from Higher, is truly rewarding as it allows me to consider fully the effects of what we learn, and deepens my knowledge. A week of work experience at Baillie Gifford gave me the opportunity to use economics outwith the classroom. During the week I visited all the departments involved in investment management and found each role equally appealing. Analysing share prices was particularly enjoyable.

Attending a lecture in July '07 showed me for the first time how important International Law is, especially in addressing issues such as terrorism where the moral and legal principles of individual countries become difficult to follow.

I learned how to connect with a diverse group of people about political issues as the Labour candidate in our school's mock election in May '07. As the secretary of a Young Enterprise company I gained a sense of life in the business world and of how to improve my organisation. A week of work experience in Germany in '06 developed my communication skills and made me realise how beneficial encountering new situations can be.

I am Form Prefect for a class of 8 year olds and have also volunteered to help younger pupils in their history lessons once a week, improving their learning and so hopefully consolidating my own. The Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award, which I aim to finish in July '08, has allowed me to take part in new experiences as well as continue those I already enjoy. I helped out at my local Pony Club as part of this, which also contributed towards completing the Community Sports Leadership Award. Since I was four years old, I have committed to weekly dance lessons and I would love to continue dance at university.

I feel that I would be well suited to a course allowing me to pursue my interest in subjects underlying society and shaping the world's development and look forward to the academic excitement of university.

Statement of Purpose Sample

2009-10-25 22:34:01 阅读3757 评论0 252009/10 Oct25

My perception of Politics changed when I read the Communist Manifesto. I began to see the world as not a collection of states but a universal society divided by relative beliefs. Humanitarian initiatives, such as Amnesty International, became a large part of my life, and my passion developed from there. I took a strong extra curricular interest in politics at A-Level, attending debates by political figures such as Tony Benn and Peter Tatchell, reading the works of those such as Chomsky and Machiavelli, giving me two sides of the normative and positivist coin, and participating in protests such as the anti-war march of 2003. Following A-Levels, my teacher led me to International Relations by Lawson, which drove my interest further, especially the historical aspect. My interest in history also encompasses international history, such as Lenin and the Russian Revolution and Martin Luther's reform of the church, both of which I find tactically intriguing. I prefer to engage with a problem having an historical awareness of the arguments as, for example, in the Arab-Israeli conflict, a topic I have recently researched. I wish to use your course not only to provide a basis for a career within international politics but also to immerse myself in the subject for its own sake.

During my school career I sought to experience as wide a variety of subjects as I could. Studying Economics taught me to approach an issue with reasoned argument, and to be cautious when making complex decisions. Certainly the opportunity of investigating Philosophy added to this. I soon found out that it is near impossible to be single-minded and make sweeping judgements in a philosophical discussion! The study of Film allowed me to pursue another passion from an academic perspective. This academic diversity has, I hope, led to the open-mindedness that I feel is vital to learning, and was rewarded with a prize for academic achievement from my school. I found another pursuit in my school debating team, where I took opposing positions on such issues as the problems with charity and fair vs. free trade. I wrote for, and occasionally edited, the school's politics magazine, which allowed me to gauge my peers opinions, helping me to extrapolate my own. I was a school prefect, frequently guiding prospective parents around the grounds, and took an active role in the School Council.

Taking a gap year has enabled me to approach my future university career with more dedication and maturity than was possible even a year ago. The experience of managing my own finances and planning my travelling is teaching me the blessing and curse of independence. I am currently teaching English as a Foreign Language to German students to finance my travel, and participate in the students extracurricular activities, such as leading guided tours of London. This has increased my confidence, public-speaking and team-work abilities. I am using my gap year travel to further my interest in the Civil Rights Movement in the USA, and am currently planning my itinerary to follow the path of some of the most important events in the struggle. I am currently scheduled to have work experience at Oxfam while at home, as well as to meet ambassadorial personnel while in the USA.

I enjoy a wide variety of activities outside of my academic life. With a family firmly based within the arts, opera, theatre and music have always been part of my life, both as a participant and an audience member. I have recently developed an interest in modern Islamic art, such as that of Reza Abedini, who transforms Arabic political issues into bold images.

I am a highly motivated student who knows how to balance social and professional commitments, skills which I believe are essential for university life, a challenge for which I know I am ready.

政治 personal statement 个人陈述 范文

2009-10-25 22:33:06 阅读1849 评论0 252009/10 Oct25

Since childhood, I have been fascinated by the constantly changing world that we live in, wanting to understand and explore the causes and effects of current and future human interactions. During my teenage years I started listening to the BBC World Service and reading internationally recognized journals and magazines. I have become convinced that a third level education relevant to world affairs would help me gain knowledge that would allow me to pursue a wide range of possibilities. My current career ambition is to find a suitable role within an international organisation, such as the UN, ideally with specific focus on assisting people who have been displaced due to civil unrest, war, famine or other natural disaster.

I was born in Australia to a family of political refugees who had escaped communist Czechoslovakia. After my country’s Velvet Revolution, my family returned to Prague, the capital of a then newly formed democracy. This radical change helped to widen my perspective and see the world from a different point of view. Today I am a bi-national avid traveler, having visited more than 40 countries. I have attended six exchange programmes with partner schools: one in Sweden, one in Germany and four in France. I have also been on two volunteer programmes with Earthwatch, firstly being in Spain, where we helped gather information to design marine protected areas and then in Tanzania, helping to determine the impact of forest fragmentation through monitoring rainforest bird populations. The Tanzanian expedition in particular was an eye opener, not only because of the local cultural differences and the poverty, but also because of the amount of teamwork and hardship we had to face living in a remote area like the Usambara Mountains. The experience also made me aware of how foreign countries and NGOs are helping to alleviate the poverty in Tanzania.

At school, my position as the only girl in my class has ensured that I have maintained a somewhat independent approach to my studies. I have chosen a broad range of subjects for my Final Exams, not only because I like challenges, but also because I believe I will obtain a lot of all-around knowledge and skills from them: Mathematics and Physics have helped me understand the physical and abstract world around me, while Czech and English have shown the beauty of literature, which has become a great passion for me, Herman Hesse being my favourite author. I currently represent my school in the Prague Model of the United Nations, where I am I delegate for Germany in the Third Committee.

Aside from academia, I have a passion for a number of hobbies. Ever since I first visited Egypt, as a 12 years old, I have enjoyed egyptology, with all the facts and mysteries surrounding it. I enjoy the arts in many aspects opera has a special place for me, as my mother was, in her youth one of Czechoslovakia’s most promising opera singers. I also enjoy Photography, particularly black and white. I held a small exhibition of my work in Prague last year. As a child I enjoyed ballet, and even competed in local events. Now, sports have become more important to me: while being in the Czech Quiksilver Snowboarding team, I have achieved commendable results in freestyling contests on a national level. I am looking forward to improve my technique and hope to participate in international competitions. Every Summer I spend at least one month in France perfecting my French. Apart from speaking fluent French, English, Czech and Slovak, I have been studying German at school and have also been trying to self-study Hebrew. I am a active member of Mensa, Net-Aid.org, Greenpeace and the Czech–Japanese association.

I look forward to the challenges and opportunities that studying in the UK will present. I value very greatly the chance to be a part of such a reknowned institution as your college is, and I believe that in some small way I may add to its whole, through my personality, work effort and experiences to date.
