 在申请海外大学的道路上,essay、课外活动、推荐信、面试、GPASAT/GRE/TOEFL等各种标化考试成绩可谓是每位申请者都必须面对的“五大金刚”。

对于很多名校,成绩自然是非常重要的部分,但是学校不仅仅只看重成绩,能够最终放在招生委员会讨论桌上的每位申请者都有其独特之处,或许是因为你的推荐信很真诚,也可能是因为你有独特的活动经历。

我校G11Clara同学在Maria老师的帮助下成功申请到了世界联合学院组织的非洲斯威士兰项目,在非洲学习交流了3周。

Clara同学分享了她此次非洲斯威士兰短期课程的一些感想和心得。

In 29th of december 2017-13th of January 2018, I participated UWC Swaziland Short course. The short course was the most challenging experience in my life. When I first heard about this short course program from school, it wasnt easy to decide to go because it was completely different news from my life. However, I thought this is good chance to be inspired and experience new thing so I just submitted my application. Luckily, I got accepted and from that day I started to prepare my journey. It wasnt easy to prepare requirements all by myself. Without support from parents and school I would never imagine to participate this programe.

The theme of this short course was Together for Development. It was a three-week programme held at the Waterford Kamhlaba UWC of Southern Africa. It was the only short course on the African continent. We covered many topics related to development. The lectures were about Economic development, Social Entrepreneurships, Gender, Enviroment, Arts, Education, Activism etc. It was very useful for me because at the school I dont study these kinds so it was good opportunity to learn new things out of school.

At the short course, I met many different friends from Angola, Belgium, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Chile, Costa Rica, Finland, Gambia, Germany, Italy, India, Lithuania, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Palestine, Rwanda, South Korea, Switzerland, Swaziland, Tanzania, UK, USA, Zimbabwe. This was my first time meeting various nations at the same time. They were all very initiative and passion to global issues. Through the lecture we listened and shared our thoughts and personal stories.

 

Since, I was the only Asian at the short course I stand for many positions. I shared Asian perspectives and real life stories living in asia. When I first knew that I am the only Asian in this program I was quite worried but people were nice to me and there was no discrimination to each other. I felt free to those people and begin to be more open minded. It was great time to talk about the development deeply. I never had thought about it deeply before but as the lecture continues I started truly concerning about the global issues. The short course made me find the new lease on my life.

If someone in my school concerning about sign up for the Short course, I would definitely recommend participate it. The UWC short course not only broad your knowledge but also make you global-minded.

 

2017年1229日至2018年1月13日,我参加了非洲斯威士兰短期课程。短期课程是我一生中最具挑战性的经历。当我第一次听说短期课程时,并不清楚这是什么样的一个课程。但是,我认为这是一个很好的机会。幸运的是,我被录取了。在父母和学校的支持下,我顺利地申请了这个短期课程。

这个短期课程的主题是“促进共同发展”。这是在南非Waterford Kamhlaba 举行的为期三周的项目。这是非洲大陆上唯一的短期课程。这个课程涵盖了许多与发展有关的主题。这些主题涉及经济发展、环境、艺术、教育等。这对我来说是学习新事物的好机会。

 

在短期课程时,我遇到了许多来自不同国家的朋友,他们来自安哥拉、比利时、巴西、布基纳法索、智利、哥斯达黎加、芬兰、冈比亚、德国、意大利、印度、立陶宛、荷兰、新西兰、挪威、巴勒斯坦、卢旺达、韩国、瑞士、斯威士兰、坦桑尼亚、英国、美国、津巴布韦等。这是我第一次同这么多国家的朋友一起学习。他们对全球问题的探讨都非常积极和热情。通过课程,我们学习分享了各自的想法。

 

我是唯一一个来自亚洲的学生。我分享了生活在亚洲的生活故事。当我第一次知道我是这个项目中唯一的亚洲人时,我非常担心,但是大家对我很友好,而且彼此之间没有任何偏见。短期课程让大家深刻谈论有关发展的各种话题。我开始真正关注全球问题。

如果学校有人想申请短期课程,我非常乐意帮助你们。像这样的短期课程不仅能拓宽你的知识面,而且还能让你具有全球视野。
