This is the key area of the application form and the one to which most
attention is paid. It’s the only opportunity to sell yourself. Admissions
Tutors are looking for a carefully crafted few paragraphs which will convince
them to offer you a place. They want you to sell yourself to them.这是把你买个好价钱的唯一机会。
Admissions Tutors want to see clear logical reasons why you’ve chosen
a course. You need to demonstrate that you have properly thought about
what you want to do and why. Committed students who’ve put thought into
their course choice are more likely to do well and less likely to drop
Tutors will look for evidence of work experience, especially if it complements
your course choice. They also like to see an indication of how you feel
your work experience has benefited you, either personally or career wise.
If you mention a particular quality that you have, give an example e.g.
if you say you are well organised, then say you always meet deadlines
for your assignments (but only if it’s true!!).性格特点，一定要真实啊！！
Admission Tutors also look for some evidence that you have a contribution
to make towards the course, for example evidence that you have good communication
Tell them what you enjoy doing besides studying. It will help
gain an impression of what kind of person you are.
DON’T WAFFLE BUT DON’T MAKE IT TOO BRIEF!不要夸夸奇谈，也不要过于简略
Separate out the statement into clear paragraphs or sections
which discuss different aspects of your application.
Make sure that the information that you provide is clear, well presented
and correctly spelt. For paper applications remember that your application
will be reduced in size and if it is not well written and clear to start
with, imagine how much worse it will be when it has been reduced!
Produce several practice copies and ask someone to read over and check
your final draft for you. Also, make sure that the information you want
to include fits into the space that you have on the application form.
There’s nothing worse than if you have to make your writing smaller and
smaller to fit it in or if you tail off because there is no space left!
