I am a student, graduated from BaoYang middle school, Nanning, GuangXi autonomous region, in 2006.
I am still studying in high school now, because I was not enrolled by the ideal university last year.
Recently, I have a dream to study abroad.
Then I search online and find that it is more convenient and suitable for me to go to New Zealand for study.
First, New Zealand is a multicultural country, which has the most advanced education in the world.
Second, the tuition is lower than other countries’, which I think is more reasonable for me.
Finally, the climate of New Zealand is similar with the climate of the South of China.
Considering above reasons, I told my parents my plan on going to New Zealand for study, and my parent agreed with me.
As a girl, I like preschool education since I was young.
Nowadays, Chinese parents, who want their children to get better education, pay more attention to preschool education.
If I study specialized curriculums on preschool education, I will go back China and work hard on preschool education after leaving college.
My plan is as follows: first, I plan to study English in language institute for about a half year in New Zealand.
Then, I will study specialized curriculums on preschool education.
I believe I have the ability of study abroad, because I have finished all high school curriculums.
Besides, my parents both have job and have rich income, so they will support me to finish my study.
After finishing my study, I will return to my homeland and work on preschool education, so as to realize my life value.
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am looking forward to study in University of Alberta in Canada this fall.
As an essential part of visa application process, I understand that a true study plan is important for my further success.
My name is***, Male, born on *** in***, China.
I accepted the offer of admission into the graduate program in Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Alberta.
My undergraduate education has laid the groundwork towards the path I now intend to embark on.
Pursuing dual degrees from seemingly vastly different fields at ** University endowed me with a solid theoretical background in two diverse fields of engineering and management and placed me in a unique position to appreciate the importance of management within the construction industry.
My choice of studying in Canada
Over the past decades, China has enjoyed rapid development in all aspects of its economy.
Opening its doors to the world has facilitated its expansion; this development necessitated building the proper infrastructures that will sustain the tremendous development the country’s economy is undergoing.
In line with this, the rapid rate of economic growth fostered an accompanying rapid rate of constructions.
Currently, buildings and skyscrapers are being built in the different cities of China.
Apart from infrastructures, these developments require the application of advanced technologies and the implementation of knowledge support, especially in fostering an effective, efficient, and thriving construction engineering and management system.
However, as an undergraduate student I know my knowledge and skills are somehow limited, necessitating advanced study in this field.
Doing so entails I look outside of China and learn from the experiences of other developed countries, especially those with far advanced systems in place.
Learning from their example will provide me with the exposure necessary for achieving my goals.
After a careful and thorough search, I have decided to seek admission to the University of Alberta in Canada.
The graduate program in *** is exactly the correct integration of interests I am searching for.
One of the main attractions of the university’s program is not only its solid reputation in the field of engineering but its interdisciplinary nature as well.
The prospect of studying ***in a new environment to broaden my horizon is a thrilling one, as it will raise new challenges for me to conquer.
Compared with somebody holding a Master degree from a Chinese university, a graduate holding one from North America which is not only exam-oriented is much more competitive in China’s labour market.
In addition, studying abroad may save time for me to gain the Master degree.
Moreover, compared with US and Britain, Canada is able to offer international student the first-class education resources with lower expense and Canada is
a peaceful, civilized and safe country.
It is a good chance to receive high quality education and to experience diverse cultures.
My overall educational goal
I have achieved excellent academic performance in both senior high school and ***University and I got band **overall in IELTS.
All of these make the basic foundations for my future study in University of Alberta.
Anyway, first step of my plan is to overcome the language barrier and adjust myself into the new environment, including new teaching methods, cultural differences and enhancing mutual understanding between the Chinese and other peoples.
In addition, the most important thing is to learn the courses of *** to improve my academic ability.
I hope I can use limited time to acquire more advanced skills, methodologies and the professional knowledge related to my major.
My parents have sufficient funds to supply me to study in Canada.
They are definitely willing and able to afford my education and it will not influence the future life of our family since they both have enough saving, decent jobs and stable incomes.
Return to China and Career Objective
After graduation, I intend to return to China and begin my work towards contributing to the development of the field of *** in my country.
Although there are numerous efforts towards addressing this issue, the number of specialists in this field of expertise is still sparse in China.
This raises the necessity for a new breed of successful and skilled professionals to lead in the creation of this system.
As a passionate and creative individual, I believe I am well-suited to contribute to overall efforts meant to fill this void in the job market.
I aim to become a professional who can fulfill the position such a relationship necessitates in my homeland and make good use of advanced technologies I learned.
One more important, because I am the only child, going back to China and taking good care of my parents after finishing my study is my responsibility.
In addition, China’s governmental policy is more attractive for students graduate from universities out of China and favorable conditions will be supplied for our personal and professional development.
A successful overseas returned Chinese student is always my aim and motivation.
Thank you for your time.
Date: April 6, 2010.
