[经验分享] 简介DIY申请澳大利亚留学及一些建议

关于澳大利亚留学谈谈自己的留学感受.有的人留学是为了镀层金,回国找好一点的工作;有的人留学是为了移民;有的人到了国外一年两年了,还不知道自己在干嘛.
我不算典型的留学生,家庭条件不太好,留学是我从初中以来的梦想,为了这个梦想我和我的家人积攒了10年,终于在硕士的时候,留洋澳洲.
对于国内的学弟学妹们,有些忠告:
1正确认知自己
有的人留学就是为了图名气,哪个大学好就去哪个大学,说是名气大,回国面子上过得去.找工作也好找.这点大可不必,就拿我自己来说吧,我国内非211大学,还没毕业就接到
几份工作,这些工作都是相传非211非985不要的.所以因人而异,你就算名气大的学校毕业了又怎样? 老板爱上的是你本人,而不是你的大学.有名校情结的直接到名校抓人来
工作.
建议: 综合比较各个大学的专业课程设置,看老师的教学背景,看是否提供实习机会.
2心理上成熟
这和大家喜欢找中介有关.因为什么事情都是中介包办了,花钱省麻烦.可是你也省去了很多学习的机会.比方在申请学校的时候,中介给你的信息和你自己获取的信息是有出入的.就算是同一份资料,不同的两个人看待都会不同,更何况中介还有利益在里面.心理的成熟具体体现在你对待找学校找导师找住房等等问题的处理上.不要人云亦云,盲目跟风.
建议:很多事情就算中介提供了材料,自己还是亲自过目.在国内多通过留学论坛还有QQ群之类的,了解国外那边的情况,以防自己吃亏.
3对于语言课程
有的人觉得出去读语言很没面子,觉得这钱不该花.我的建议是,即便是你雅思过了7分,甚至8分,都有必要过来学语言.首先,语言是让你体验国外不同课程体系,评分标准的最好时机,每个人出国了都会感到或多或少的不适应.其次,语言是让你生活上更加习惯.比方说自己做饭问题,找房搬家等问题.最后,语言课程会结实很多的朋友,这些朋友和你的情况背景差不多,很容易找到共同感.
建议:即便雅思通过,也申请5周的语言,过来过度.千万不要不读语言,光提前一个月过来,会无聊死的.
4做好吃苦的准备
留学不是旅游,更不是儿戏.每一次的作业老师都会认真批改,每一次的进步都会让你更加优秀.在这边,你会感觉到心理上的痛苦,学习上的吃力,生活上的不方便.但是这些,都是人生苦难学的必修课.如果你把留学当成**,供你玩耍的天堂,那劝你还是在家里面好好呆着.
建议:自立自强,自主自信.
5关于移民
澳洲有个特别的诱惑:移民. 其实我过来读翻译,某种程度上也是因为有移民的可能.不过移民这事,也是仁者见仁智者见智的.只有你过来了,感受到了,体验了,才对于是否留在这边有个初步认识.我个人还是喜欢国内的方便,虽然国内也有一些不和谐的因素,但毕竟那是生我养我的地方.
建议:如果纯粹为了移民来澳洲,建议别来,因为来了也会让你失望.
和所有的事情一样,留学也是有利有弊的,但是不希望大家把留学当成投资,因为投资有风险,入股需谨慎, 相比而言,我跟喜欢把留学当成一种经历.至于这种经历能够收获多少,那要看你的成长速度了.
建议大家在出国前就做好计划,PLAN A& Plan B.
A.计划是留在澳洲这边应该有个怎样的职业生涯规划.(这就要多听取前人,学长,或者已经在这边生活了10年以上人的经验了)
B.直接回国,对于选择专业和学校,以及回国之后能干什么,都要想好.
======
对于这些种种的可能性,在国内我就有所听闻.我喜欢翻译专业,因为它的严谨会让我自己学有所获,不单是对于移民,还是回国发展,
都是很有帮助的.
在国内我就想好了回国有3条路可以走~
想好了这些大方向之后,来到这边就不会后悔,自己所要做的,就是竭尽全力好好读书!
最后祝大家都能够学得开心,学得愉快,学有所获!
本文特此感谢shiner4eversimont同学

DIY 澳洲MASTER申请全程文书及细节

12月初我收到了澳洲Macquarie University 的Letter of Offer, 在此为了曾经帮助过我的太傻坛友们,我也贡献出我的经历,供想去澳洲的同学们参考。
我在大学里学的是法学,但是是理科学校的法学,不是太好。而且我也发现学得太泛了,反而什么也不会,于是我想换专业。我到Macquarie University 学得是Master of Accounting (CPA Extension )。当初选这个专业的原因是它不要专业背景,而且Macquarie University 的会计很不错。
1Cover Letter
这个不是最重要的,但是寄的时候它是放在最上面的。这个的例子我想大家都看了不少了,在这里我只给大家看看我的。

Dear Sir or Madam

I am applying a Master’s Degree in Accounting (CPA Extension) at your university. My intended date of enrollment is the beginning of May 2005.


Enclosed are following items of my application materials:

1. Postgraduate Application Form -- completed in the China International Education Expo 2004, Chengdu on Nov. 4th, 2004.
2. Macquarie University International Scholarship Application Form -- completed

3. Degree C**ificate and Diploma (Chinese Copy) -- signed in the China International Education Expo 2004, Chengdu on

Nov. 4th, 2004.

4. a copy of official transcript and Degree C**ificate and Diploma from XXXX University -- in sealed envelope.

5. the C**ification of Rank and Grade Point Average from the Faculty of Humanities and Law of XXXX University

6. a copy of IELTS Score Report -- **, signed in the China International Education Expo 2004, Chengdu on Nov. 4th, 2004.

7. a curriculum vitae

8. a Personal Statement

9. two additional Letters of Recommendation besides the required two Academic Referee’ Reports -- in sealed envelopes

10. a copy of TOEFL ( paper-based ) Score Record -- 647

11. a copy of c**ificate of 2003 National English Contest -- Third Prize

12. four completed self adhesive name and address labels in English and Chinese characters -- in a white envelope

Thank you very much for reviewing my application materials. If you need any other information or materials, please let me know promptly


P.S. The application fee was waived in the China International Education Expo 2004 Chengdu on Nov. 4th, 2004.

我的Cover Letter 和别人的基本没什么区别,但是我在这页纸上加了页眉:

COVER LETTER FOR MACQUARIE UNIVERSITY

其他学校也是一样做一个页眉。没别的,只是为了别致一些。还有Sincerely yours,后的名字一定要手签,不要打印。这样基本就没问题了。 由于我的好多中文资料已经在教育展上被看过了,所以才有第3项和其他的说明。

2Application Form

这个只要真实的填就好了,不用全部大写,用不用黑的笔也无所谓。我在教育展上填的,用的是蓝色圆珠笔,其他的学校也是提供的蓝色圆珠笔。不过如果是你自己从网上下载的表来填,那就照要求吧。不过用不着用Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional 来填。如果你要申请美国的学校,听说必须用Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional。申请澳洲就别麻烦了。我的Macquarie University International Scholarship Application Form就是用Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional填的,太费时/事了。到处去找Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional下,下到了还不知怎么用,又试了好久,终于搞定了。打出来的确很漂亮,可花的时间不知是手填的多少倍。如果你也像我这样执著,又有时间,也可以用。如果你试了半天也不知道怎么用,就发信到zoeloveroy@sohu.com吧,请在标题中说明,要不然我就当垃圾邮件删了,谢了。

还有填电话时,中国的区号是86,然后后面的各地区号要去掉0。比如成都的区号是028,填的时候要填成28,即

86-28-XXXXXXXX。可能这个大家都已经知道了,可是当初填的时候我不知道,后来还要把0划去,挺不美观的。

3成绩单和学位证、毕业证

很多人都说必须要公证的,其实完全不用。不过签证时学位和毕业证要公证,反正要公证,你可以先在申请时就公证。不过我申请时都没有公证。

(1)成绩单

我的成绩单的英文是自己翻的,有的是学校给翻,都没关系。不过所有学校给这种成绩单盖章都要收钱,我们学校的是10元一份。成绩单要用印有学校名称的航空信封装,如果没有印有学校名称的航空信封,印有校名的国内普通信封也行,但是密封章信封的两头都要盖。航空信封只有一个开口,当然只盖一个密封章就够了。 注意成绩单是中文一份,英文一份。在信封正面可以贴上打印的标签,表明这个信封里装的是什么。因为加上推荐信,这个申请包里会出现好多个信封,贴个标签可以方便别人。

标签的格式:           

OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT

Name: XX        No: XXXXXXXX      Faculty: Humanities and Law  

Major: Law       School Year: Four Years                Class: 0001


标签千万别用手写,一定要打印出来。简单的方法是在一张纸上打印好多份,再裁成小条,用胶水贴在信封上。你要不嫌麻烦也可以直接把信封放进打印机里,设置好也可以打出来。还有,标签的字体一定要和成绩单的一致,用的是Times New Roman就都用Times New Roman。虽然是小细节,可是有时也蛮重要的。

关于成绩单的格式,你可以到学校的教务处去问问,如果学校有规定,就按规定,如果没有你就自己设计,但最好都集中在一页上,即中文成绩单一页,英文的一页,因为有些学校是按章的个数收钱的。当然有些学校教务处是给你打印出来了,那样更好。

我是学法的,所以在这里只能提供法学科目的翻译了。

成绩单下面还应有一些注解,如:

备注:1.  优 = 90 - 100,良= 80 - 89,中 = 70 - 79,及格 = 60 - 69   

2.  GPA算法:90 - 100 = 4,80 - 89 = 3,70 - 79 = 2,60 - 69 = 1   

3.  *为选修课,其成绩分为合格与不合格两种

Note:  1. A = 90 - 100, B = 80 - 89, C = 70 - 79, D= 60 – 69

2. GPA: 90 - 100 = 4, 80 - 89 = 3, 70 - 79 = 2, 60 - 69 = 1

3. ﹡means selective courses, which are evaluated by qualified (Q) and unqualified (U)

    各个学校的规定不同,看自己学校的规定吧。如果学校太懒了,什么都要你自己做,你可以参见《北美留学一路通》(李强编著,新华出版社,2001年版)P78-81的成绩单。看了那么多成绩单,这个是最好的例子。又详细,又省地方,如果我们学校没有规定的格式,我就用这个了。


(2)学位证和毕业证

    你要是先公证了,那在这里就不说了。我下面要讲讲学校开的证明。我们学校的规定是盖一个学校的章是10块钱。我刚开始不知道那么贵所以就按原尺寸复印了学位证和毕业证,然后翻译了这两个证,分别打在两页A4纸上,那一份学位证和毕业证就有4页纸,每页都要盖章,一份就要40元,太贵了。幸亏盖章的老师人好,她给我看了看别人做的样本,一页纸就搞定。下面我就来教教大家,就是做起来有点麻烦。

    首先,把一张A4的纸如下图1.平均分为4部分(A、B、C、D),然后把你的学位证和毕业证缩印成A和C的尺寸,分别贴在A、C处。

    然后把学位证和毕业证翻译好,打在A4 纸上。记住,一定要加边框。接着在把打印出来的两个证缩印成B、D的尺寸分别贴在B、D处。或者打印的时候就只打出那么大一块,再裁出来分别贴在B、D处。注意字尽量打大一些,免得复印时印不清楚。

    最后把A、B、C、D都贴满的A4 纸再复印一次,就做好了。剩下的就是在中间E的位置盖上学校的章。边框这时就很重要了,因为章要改在四个角上。

我的翻译如下:

①学位证:

                                                                        (English Copy)

Having been verified, it also conforms to “the Requirements of the Regulations regarding the Academic Degree of the

People’s Republic of China”. She/He is conferred upon the Degree of Bachelor of Law.


No. XXXXXXXXX

                                                                                                                   President: XXX

                                                                                                                   XXXX University

②毕业证:


                                                                                       Diploma

                                                                                   (English Copy)

如果成绩单和学位证、毕业证都是在学校盖章的,可以封在一个信封里,盖上密封章,不用再分开装了。

后来签证的时候做了公证件,可能公证处翻的更好吧。我也把他们翻的列在下面,大家可以参考。

                                                         (Steel Seal of XXXX University)

注意:Photograph 周围的框是像一个一寸照片那么大的,不是我画的那么小。(我不知道怎么用WORD把那个框画成那样)


4.排名和平均分

这个部分不是人人都需要的。因为我大一有两门课考得不好,但是我的年级排名还是很不错的,为了不让那两门课的成绩影响我的录取,我才做了这个。还有,澳洲的学校的要求中有平均分要求。你可以让他们根据你成绩单上的成绩来算,也可以在成绩单最后注明,也可以专门做一个这个证明,特别是系里盖章不收钱时(我们系就是,只要写明用途,让负责人签字就行)。

我的例子:

                                                            C**IFICATION OF RANK AND GRADE POINT AVERAGE


Name of Student:

Date of Birth:

GRADE POINT AVERAGE:

This is to c**ify that Ms. /Mr.________’ s cumulative grade point average was_____(%) at the end of her /his academic year in 2004.


Signature: ___________________________________     Date: _________________________

Name:

Position: Student Counselor (辅导员,你也可以写其他有关的人)

E-mail:

Place the official university / department seal here:

     注意, 这其中除了签名和日期外都应打印出来。还有打印的纸最好用带有系或学校信头的纸,如果实在没有可以自己做一个,用彩色打印机打出来。具体做法在推荐信那部分教大家。


5. 雅思成绩单

这个根据各学校的要求来做。不过除了前8的某几所以外,其他学校只要复印件就够了。你可以在申请包中寄复印件,如果学校非要原件不可,他会发信告诉你,倒时再寄也不迟(不过最好在考后3个月内)。一般的情况是复印件就足够了。

关于怎么给学校寄原件,领成绩单时有一张说明会告诉你,这里就不说了。


6.简历

这个应该很好写,但不要太长,控制在两页以内。

我的简历格式:

注意:1. 姓名和e-mail等你认为重要的信息可以加粗以强调。

             2. 在最后加上Signature:                  Date:                ,并用手写填上,显得很别致。

             3. 简历和个人陈述是很个性化的材料,你可以选择你觉得好看的字体,别老局限在Times New Roman。我推荐的字体是Verdana和Arial,这两种都挺好看的,而且据说外国人很喜欢。


7. 个人陈述

这个就得根据个人情况自己慢慢写了。我大概写了两周,写得很痛苦。我的经验就是多看看别人的例子。我买了好几本书来参考,觉得最有用的是新东方出国留学系列的《留学申请个人陈述写作模板》(包凡一编著,世界图书出版公司出版,2003版)。

我的个人陈述:

                                                                                 Personal Statement


In my desk drawer, beneath stacks of books and stationery, is a small saving box with a lock on it. In it are the “slips of my wishes and dreams”. I have kept it for more than sixteen years. It was a birthday present from my parents when I was

seven. Originally, with the hope that I could learn the spirit of frugality they advised me to save part of my pocket money in its abdomen for better utilities later. As a curious kid, however, I spent every coin I had to try whatever intrigued me, a

colorful pencil, a new type of candies, and never dropped one coin into it. Instead, with an inspiration one day, I started

the habit of writing all the things I wanted most out of life down on slips of paper and stuffing them into this empty box. Till

now, I can not remember how many wishes and dreams I have saved in it for I forget the keys after I tried to put it away

safely.


Last Saturday, just after I accomplished my IELTS test, I was putting all the materials about IELTS into my bookcase and

suddenly I touched a hard and cold metal piece under a pack of old textbooks. Excitedly and anxiously, I unlocked my

saving box with it. I pulled out all slips and reviewed them one by one with tears streaming down my cheeks. I embarked on a wonderful journey of recalling - “I wish I could go to Tsinghua University.” “I want to buy daddy a B.M.W..” “I want to be a psychologist.” “I want to be an excellent lawyer.” “I want to be an accountant.” … Every slip has a story behind and

these stories are indispensable components of my life.


“I want to be a psychologist.”


Whoever once was a teenager can understand the “growing pain” during that time. Sometimes desperate, usually feeling

an emptiness in the pit of the stomach, always seeking the so-called meaning of life and searching for one’s identity, these

are symptoms I had when I was sixteen and seventeen. I retreated far into myself and suffered a lot from that experience. What I remembered vividly is the time I was standing on the rooftop, watching the advent of the dusk. The sky was

changing from blue to gray, then to mauve, and finally velvet black whereas the lights behind the windows were kindled one by one. There, behind every bright window, existed an ordinary soul and I was just one of them. Sentimentally, with sorrow and void, I believed I was just an unnoted atomy in the boundless universe and wonder what I was able to achieve

through this.


With great efforts and a long period of time, finally, I overcame the depression and struggled to fulfill my studies. Later on, after watching some television programs about psychology and talking to my friends, I found this feeling was just the

symptom of depression and most teenagers were bound to experience it within a long or short time, depending on their

personalities, abilities to deal with pressures and so on. Unfortunately, every year, because of the depression, some

teenagers commit suicides. Once a victim myself, I felt it was my mission to help them out. With this in mind, I determined to be a psychologist for it was the simplest and easiest way to meet them and help alleviate all the sufferings they had to

endure. Looking back on the past, this experience promised to be a highlight of my young life and a blessing in disguise.

I finally realized “Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.” and grew a stronger heart. I believe

the hardship I was faced with as a youngster accelerated my maturity and greatly influenced my vast determination to

succeed. Most importantly, however, is that I learned effective interpersonal communication skills and the ability to adapt

myself to harsh situations, which have proven to be essential part of survival today. Now, having undergone the tough test of life, I can swear with confidence that when confusion and chaos appear to reign supreme in my life again, when I face

mountains of challenges once more, I will overcome them and stand above them among the clouds and stars.


“I want to be an excellent lawyer”


Due primarily to its respectable career prospect, my parents made a critical decision for me that I had to go to a Law School. For me, at that time the only thing I knew about the laws and lawyers was the dribs and drabs from some television serials. As soon as I started to study the Jurisprudence in the first semester my expectation about the law was spoiled by crushing disappointment because in the preface of this textbook, a quotation shocked me. It says “The nature of the law is against

all the romantic, interesting and novel ways of thinking.” I always considered myself to be an ingenious and innovative

creature and even in times of pain and loss in the High School, I did not give up these talents and felt proud of them.  

Owing to this inimical mood, I obtained very low score in my course of Jurisprudence and Chinese Constitutional Law in the

first semester.


However boring I thought the law would be, as a student, I had no other choice, only to study it and take great efforts to

study it. With time, my huge endeavor resulted in remarkable progress. Except the first semester, I had been the recipient

of People Scholarship for the undergraduate every year. The deeper I learned about the law, the more I was fascinated by

it. Based on the combined strength of legal theories and cases, sociology, commerce, economics etc. my major possesses

an interdisciplinary nature. I found this genre of studies did away with the narrow-mindedness inherent in the pursuit of

studies in a single area and the extensive knowledge provided me with a solid foundation upon which to prepare for a

qualified lawyer. Later, having been an intern legal assistant in a Law Firm and acquired some experience in a local court, I

discovered that being a lawyer was a challenging and richly rewarding experience. Through the course of seeking clues, I

could meet people from various backgrounds and encounter anything beyond a common person’s imagination. Although

complained at first, now I am grateful for my parents because they made a right choice for me.


“I want to be an accountant.”


This idea came to my mind just one year ago. Although, my mother has been an accountant in a government agency for

more than 20 years and I started to get acquainted with accounting even when I was a kid, I took no interest in it. People

always maintain that spending the whole life with numbers, the accountant is an extremely monotonous and tedious job. I

hold the same idea until I took the course called Principles of Accounting. My professor Mr. Jin is a CPA  as well as a lawyer.

It is his conviction that an outstanding lawyer is not just the one who is skilled and knowledgeable in his field, but just as

importantly, one who is able to develop his exp**ise in other relevant field, such as accounting. His advice helped to shape my career choice in Accounting. My fundamental knowledge towards this subject enabled me to learn it quickly and to push myself forward to advanced theories. As I became more and more involved in my course, I found accounting was not just a record of the past, but a guide for the management of future. I realized the potential to eliminate inefficiency through

budget forecasting and thus to avoid financial difficulties. Moreover, being a law student while studying the accounting, I

could easily acquire the essence of the Taxation Law and understand it from an accountant’s perspective.


Now, as a recent graduate from law school and student with elementary accounting background, I am self-driven and

motivated to enrich my theoretical and practical skills through your Program of Accounting which is a prestigious program

across the world. With your first-rate postgraduate education, I believe I will master the knowledge in both fields and

furthermore, by spending two and half years in a native English speaking country, my English will be as good as a local

person. Therefore, on my returning to China in 2007, I will probably become a real talent as my professor hoped and

contribute my strength to the legal and commercial development in China.


By retrospecting the slips in my saving box, I realized my life is just like a melodrama which has its twists and turns or ups

and downs. During the past sixteen years, some of my dreams came true while some of them failed, nonetheless, I have a

clear sense of what I am going to achieve in life and how I can reach them. Now, I am on my way to a new goal and

hopefully, I will reach my dream in your university.

     其实我的这篇写得也没啥特色,我找我们英语老师给看过,她的评语是:“Your PS is well-organized but not very

attractive. I think it is a bit longer than what is required. Besides, some parts are irrelevant and should be arranged in a

proper way so as to make it coherent and appealing. By the way, you should emphasize your strength and touched your

interest. This PS is scattered and the idea is not focused. You may write it from a different aspect, maybe it could be

better. The diction is okay and the language is polished. Hope to read your improved one.”

不过PS在申请澳洲学校的过程中作用没有申请美国学校那么大,只要你写清了自己一些经历和学习的目的也就差不多了,字数也不用太多,我的PS实在太长了。可我写得那么辛苦,舍不得删掉。

     跟简历一样,我在最后加上了Signature:               Date:               并用手签,显得很特别。而且我在PS上还加了页眉:            

PERSONAL STATEMENT, BY MISS/MR. XX, FOR MACQUARIE UNIVERSITY.

字体也可以根据自己喜欢的来选。

无论怎样,写完后一定要找英语老师看一看,改一改。如果认识外国人,让他们帮你看看也不错。


8. 推荐信

推荐信只有自己写的份,要老师写是不可能的。我一共写了5封 推荐信。当初的想法是我们系的老师3封,经管院的老师2封(我们上了很多经济方面的指选课和选修课)。如果申请有关法学的学位就用我们系的3封加经管院的1封,如果申请经济方面的就用经管院的2封加我们系的2封。其实不用这么多,一般2封就够了。不过你要是有时间又写得不错,多一点更有说服力嘛。(至少我是这么想的)。

要写好推荐信的关键也是要多找例子来看。新东方出国留学系列的《留学申请推荐信写作模板》(包凡一、王薇编著,世界图书出版公司出版,2003版)对我的帮助很大。 我的很多句子都是源自这本书。注意写的时候一定要举一些例子,别一劲儿地吹。

还有最重要的是打印推荐信一定要用由学校信头的那种打印纸,如果实在没有就自己做。我想每个学校都有那种红头的信签纸吧,就照着那个做一模一样的。如果能找到校徽就更完美了。

我做的信头:


XXXX 大 学

由于老师的不同,对于推荐信的态度也不同。有的老师看都不看就签了;有的老师只改正你的语法错误;而有的老师真是一句一句地看,对于不属实的部分是非要你改过来。在写推荐信之前一定要问好老师的电话和e-mail地址,特别是e-mail地址,而且要让老师帮你留意一下,因为据说有的学校会发e-mail给老师以便确认。留的e-mail地址最好是学校的,比如:XXXX@mail.buct.edu.cn

Dear Admission officer,


I’m the dean of the Law Department at XXXXUniversity . One of my favorite former students Miss /Mr.XX has informed me

of her intention to pursue graduate studies in your department and it’s my pleasure to write in support of her application.


I have had a good deal of contact with Miss /Mr.XX.over the years, teaching her in two of my courses, Commercial Law and Contact Law. During the semester, more than a hundred students were taking the courses and only after a few classes I

began to pay special attention to her, because almost in every class she sat in front rows. Each time I faced her I could see what a teacher desires most from her students: enthusiasm, concentration and manner of active thinking. Furthermore, I

found that she worked diligently, reading not only the assignment I gave, but also other reference books concerning the

author’s works we were to deal with. This enabled her to be better prepared than her fellow classmates and could put

forward ingenious and well-thought ideas in free discussions. I had always been impressed by her desire to learn about

something for its intrinsic value, rather than being solely concerned with scoring top grades, as some other students clearly do. From the conversations with her, I noticed that she possessed a wide range of interests and demonstrated breadth of

knowledge of various fields, particularly with respect to business affairs. She was also very ambitious and showed great

desire to make achievement in the field of Business Management.


In May 2004, Miss /Mr.XXwas selected to be one of the two participants from our department in the XXXX University Undergraduate Thesis Defense. Her graduation thesis titled the Resolution to the Disputes between Domain Names and Trademarks was just within my study fields and therefore, she asked me to be her advisor in a two-week period besides her tutor.

Despite the fact that few people in China had studied her topic and consequently, the materials that were available on it

were limited and the students of arts were in short of computer science, I found that her thesis displayed creative thinking, but still retained the organization of a disciplined mind. She demonstrated her understanding of the theory at an advanced

level. Through the conversation we shared, I found it quite enjoyable to talk with her because of her provoking comments

and inherent ability to grasp the crux of various problems. In my evaluation, I realized her English proficiency was a

priceless asset in her studies. As many reference texts were written in English, and void of Chinese translation. What is

more, I learned that she already had a very demanding full-time job while she had to do a large number of changes in her

original thesis and review and search the references. Meanwhile, she had to prepare her defense, designing the

PowerPoint according to the thesis, reciting the main part of the thesis. She had to accomplish the above tasks under

great pressure and within limited time. Her ability to remain calm and maintain her easy-going nature and optimism in this

situation made a deep impression in my mind. Because she already had a full-time job at that time, in two urgent moments, I even had to call her back from work to revise her thesis and fill out some form. She handled the incidents with ease and

behaved considerately.


Based on all these facts, I offer you my highest→this recommendation of Miss /Mr.XX., and would appreciate your

favorable consideration of her application.                                               


Sincerely,

RE: Reference letter for Miss /Mr.XX


Dear professors,


My connection with Miss /Mr.XX started in 2000, when I was teaching College English in the Faculty of Humanities and Law.

She was at that time a freshman majored in law. Since then she has been one of my favorite students and close friends. It

has given me great happiness to watch her grow step by step over the time and it is also very exciting to know that I may

have a positive impact upon her future career, by assisting in her efforts to pursue a master’s degree in your department.


As a professor of English, I have seen a great deal of Miss /Mr.XX over the four –year university life and have enjoyed

ample opportunities to observe her many talents. Miss /Mr.XX was an impressive student in many ways. Initially, the

academic results of her English were unspectacular, but through determined effort she made considerable progress, and

since the second semester her English scores had ranked within the top 10 among 120 students in her department,

especially her CET-4 and CET-6 scores. Moreover, she obtained the Third Prize in the 2003 National English Contest for

College Students and her TOEIC score was the No.1 in the university in 2003.


In addition,Miss /Mr.XX’s outstanding adaptability to new situations set her apart from her peers when she was still a

freshman. Just graduated from high school where the teaching modules focus on teacher-driven methods, that is, all

students have to be obedient without voicing different opinions, most students in my class were quiet and gave few

responses to what I talked about, let alone their own viewpoints.  Fortunately, Miss /Mr.XX was an exception. She learned

her role in the university within a few weeks and soon became a qualified college student. Miss /Mr.XX is also an excellent

team player and a natural leader. As a cheerful and friendly member of her class, she was well-liked and respected by her

peers. Her optimism and motivation were infectious amongst those she studied with, lifting their spirits and morale. I was so amazed at how she managed to lead all her dormmates who were all shy girls to give us English shows in English classes and

in 2001, the English comedy CINDERLLA which was written and directed by her and played by all her classmates won the

Second Prize in the University English Festival. As time passed by, I was very gratified to see more and more students in

her class become active and talkative.


Meanwhile, being a close friend of hers, I found Miss /Mr.XX a versatile young lady. Miss /Mr.XX has varied interests in her

extracurricular, sketch and calligraphy being her specialties. Her interest in classical literature has played an indispensable

role in promoting her imagination and vocal ability. In addition to that, her determination and perseverance was what

impressed me most. This can be best exemplified in the way she perfected her English. In order to enhance her English

abilities, she approached to any resource she knew, and therefore she became a frequent guest of my family, practicing

oral English with my daughter and me and lingering around my bookcase to seek any meaningful material, etc. In our

numerous private conversations, I learnt that she went to the English corner every Friday and even listened to the English

tapes while she was asleep. Consequently,her English reached the professional level. With these traits, I believe she will

reach whatever challenging goal she dares to dream.


Having now completed four-year university studies and well grounded in the proficiency in English, I believe Miss /Mr.XX will

represent an extraordinary candidate for your program. I trust her academic excellence, spirit of devotion and pleasant

personality warrant your serious consideration of her application. Should there be any way in which I can be of further

assistance in your deliberations, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


Yours sincerely,




XXX

To whom it may concern,


I am writing this letter of recommendation in support of XX, a recent graduate from the Law Department of XXXX University , for admission to your Postgraduate Program of Accounting.


I have been acquainted with XX since she enrolled in the Principles of Accounting course. This course initially began as a trial course, combining the resources of both the Law and Economic Management departments. It is extremely demanding,

especially for the students without the academic background of accounting, as it requires them to possess a very sound

understanding of basic accounting principles as well as competence in the research front of accounting theory.


While many of the students struggled with the coursework, XX appeared to relish this challenge with much confidence and

c**ainty. Her performance in class was outstanding, revealing a sharp intelligence and easy grasp of the material. Often

setting in the front row, I found her attentive in listening and active in participating in class discussions. I was struck by her

creative thinking and innovative approaches to solving problems. While many of the students saw no further than the

surface answers, she was persistently trying to get beneath that layer, to dig deeper to the true source. Others only

studied to pass the exams, but XX was obviously there to gain much more and her diligence and pursuit of knowledge did

not go unnoticed. Additionally, her ability to integrate academic knowledge into practice was impressive. Curiously, in the

class breakup, I inquired about the reason why she was so absorbed in Accounting and learnt that her mother was an

accountant and even as early as the time she was in junior high school her mother began to teach her the basic knowledge

of Accounting. And then her goal was to pass the 5 courses of CPA examination. Consequently, I was not surprised at her

highest score in the course examination at the end of the term.


I was most impressed however by XX’s dedication and passion for Accounting. I remember distinctly that incident. In a

chilling winter afternoon, my class was right after a P.E. class. I heard from their study advisor that all students in the

department had all their 5 subjects of P.E. tests finished just now and because of the extremely exhausted and

uncomfortable feelings, most students could not attend this class. But later, I was surprised at more than 30 students (

although only 1/3 of the total) appeared in the class.  XX was one of them, flush and coughing with a running nose, again

in the front row. I asked her about her test and her feelings and advised her to go back to dormitory to have a rest for she could not concentrate in that condition. To my surprise, she answered seriously that she was willing to stay in that the

contents of this class was the few parts she could not completely understand and nor her mother. She must come to grips

with it and discuss later with her mother.


I believe that XX’s proven academic record, combined with her excellent attributes, makes her a person with enormous

potential and she should be given the opportunity to further her education. I have no doubt that the knowledge and skills

offered by your distinguished Program of Accounting will stand her in good stead in her future career. I strongly ask you to

consider her application positively.

Dear Sir or Madam,


I am a professor in the Faculty of Economic Management of XXXX  University . I have known Miss XX for more than one year and believe her to be a dedicated student. When she recently approached me about her decision to continue her studies, I was pleased to speak on her behalf. My hope is that the insight I am able to provide will fully make clear the caliber of the

lady that is applying to your program of Accounting.


I taught Miss XX Taxation Law in her senior year. Although just an optional course, she left me with a deep impression of

her intellect, devotion and passion for the subject. Because of the reason that most students were engaged in the

preparation for the Graduate School Entrance Examination, few people selected my course in the semester and thus I could enjoy a lot more interactions with my 20 students, especially with Miss XX, the one always sitting in the front row.


Needless to say, teaching a course as complicated as Taxation Law in only 36 academic hours is far from enough and thus

the students have to do a great deal of extra work after class if they want to master the course. I discovered that Miss XX

had quickly grasped the basic foundation that I taught in the class and went off on her own to study more advanced

theories. As an independent learner, she absorbed new theories quickly and linked them with previous concepts in a logical manner. Meanwhile, this course emphasized practical skills, with lots of in-class discussion. She usually had many questions

and had also developed her own hypotheses, which apply both theory as well as practical knowledge to a problem.  


Because I want to make my course more practical and flexible, I did not use a standard textbook. Hence, I also did not use

the conventional examination of rogue memorization to determine the course grade. I had students analyze examples and

cases I did not talk about in class and had them provide their solutions themselves. Because Chinese students are typically

used to rogue memorization, this kind of examination frustrated many good students in the conventional sense. To my

delight, Miss XX did not have difficulty giving in-depth analyses to the problems and provide suitable solutions within a short

time. She was first to submit the paper and scored the highest in the class.


I believe with a seasoned education at your renowned accounting program, Miss XX will undoubtedly blossom in grandeur.

Her academic and personal development has been exceptional. Now, she only needs f**ile soil to branch to her greater

potential. Convinced in her excellent abilities, I unequivocally recommend her for admission to your graduate program in

Accounting.

Dear Sir or Madam,


I am writing this letter of recommendation in support of XX, a recent graduate from the Law Department of XXXX

University , for admission to your Graduate School. XX was enrolled in my International Economic Law course last year and

in the first half of this year, she came under my direct supervision while completing her undergraduate thesis. I had

numerous chances to interact with her and observe her qualities in the duration of one year.


My first impression of XX when she was taking my International Economic Law course was that she was a very diligent

student with an intense drive to pursue knowledge for she often sat within the first few rows and frequently raised

questions (some of them were very challenging) in or after the class. Later on, from the conversation with her, I found out

that she read many reference materials in both her major and related fields and she also exhibited distinctive insight into

legal affairs and social events. Therefore, the fact that she earned the second highest score in the final examination of my

course was within my expectations.


The following experience as her thesis tutor made me become more acquainted with XX. Her thesis topic was the Resolution to the Disputes between Domain Names and Trademarks. Although a brand new topic, she did not put off her perseverance at reaching into fiery current issues. Her comprehensive review of leading legal thoughts with insightful analysis of the

social repercussion was first-rate. Based on her acquired breadth of legal and philosophical knowledge, I believe XX had

grasped a higher enlightened state in legal understanding, beyond that of her fellow classmates. Meanwhile, through the

exchange of her thoughts with me during the process of writing the thesis, I found that she had an unusual intuition, for

she seldom failed to find the right way to approach a problem, and often promptly related subjects that were relevant to

each other. I also noted that she always paid attention to overall view first before focusing on details. She really has

peculiar but logical way of thinking. Moreover, XX has an inherent ability to express his opinion both on paper and in speech and thus her undergraduate thesis defense in June this year subsequently proved to be a great success.


Review what XX had fulfilled during the past one year, I am fully convinced that she is well prepared intellectually and

emotionally to pursue her further education in your program. If you need more detailed information about XX, please feel

free to contact me.

注意:

1. 由于你要让申请的学校认为这些信是出自不同人之手,所以这些信在字体、间距、字号、格式上要有些区别。别让人一看就知道是出自同一个人之手。

2. 信中一定要提到你的全名。比如你叫张三,就一定要在第一段提到Zhang San/ San Zhang/Mr. Zhang San/Mr. San

ZHANG( 根据习惯,你也可以在每封信里用一种来制造区别)。而且最好每段首都提一下你的全名,后面再用Mr. Zhang代替。

3.信要装在信封里,折信的方法也可以用多种方法以制造区别。一般也是用印有学校名的航空信封装,压着封口让老师签字,中英文随他们的习惯,但是一定要和信封里的签名一样。而信封里的签名如果是英文,一定要和下面打出的英文顺序一样。比如下面打的是San Zhang,老师就最好别签成 Zhang San。 这些细节一定要注意。如果学校没有航空信封,用印有校名的国内信封也一样,但要让老师在两头都要签名。

4.信封上应贴上表明这封推荐信是为谁写的标签,也可以直接把信封打印出来。但每封信的标签应有区别,字体应和信封内推荐信的字体一致。

还有印有自己地址和姓名的中英文标签(self adhesive name and address labels in English and Chinese characters)。这个可以用那种A4 纸大小的不干胶纸来打印。这种不干胶纸大一点的文具店都有卖(大概20多元一包)。做这个的目的是防止寄丢了。不过学校一般都用DHL给你寄过来,一般用不上。放在申请包里以防万一嘛。

你如果寄的学校不多,可以找DHL寄,它能在3个工作日里把申请包寄到,而且它还提供查询,你可以在网上查到你的申请包到哪里了。当然价钱有些贵,寄澳洲是180加燃油费(不知道是干嘛的),一共大概195RMB。

还有就是寄平信,大概一封40元左右。当时我可傻了,因为航空信封只有5号和7号,大的7号信封只有A4 纸的一半大,要把所有材料对折才能装进去。我就觉得特别奇怪,因为有人告诉我材料千万别折。最后我只有到邮局的柜台去问怎么才能不折就把材料寄出去。原来用我们平时用的那种牛皮纸大信封就可以了,不过格式要用写在航空信封上的那种,寄信人写上面,收信人写下面。这种信要在邮局柜台上寄。

我只用过这两种邮寄方式,所以只能提供这些情报。
