📨 Personal Statement 點寫?

Personal Statement 係你用嚟說服Professor 收你嘅文,理應由你自己諗,覺得得有適合嘅內容就寫落去。
一般而言,一頁 A4 (約 500字英文)合適嘅長度,你可以按需要加減。
建議使用英文填寫。
如果你申請中文/中文教育之類科目,可以 Bilingual 咁寫。
HKU / CUHK / HKUST / CityU 會提供位置俾你上傳 Personal Statement , 而其他學校唔要求。
PolyU 需要 PS 嘅科目列表
除以上四間大學外,請喺 Other documents 度上傳(非強制)。

  • CityU 表示你必須要填寫 Applicant statement 並於繳交報名時完成,但過後你亦可用 PDF 格式上傳到 Other documents,可以被視為有效。
  • 如果您喺同一間學校報多過一科,而學校只容許你提交一份嘅,我地鼓勵按照你嘅 first choice 嚟交。
  • 您可使用同一篇 Statement 交到唔同嘅學科/學系,但如果提及學校/課程嘅,請確保您使用正確嘅學校/課程名稱。
  • 過往有同學無寫仍然收到 Offer。
  • 如果你打算寫嘅可以參考以下嘅指引,但如果你決定用其他方法、想後補或者唔想寫嘅,請按自己意思做便可。我地唔會評論話「寫左一定好過唔寫」。
  • 以上並無標準答案,請憑自己嘅判斷決定寫唔寫/點樣寫。
    • ⚠️ 請勿於 @nonjupas 群內詢問 Personal Statement 係咪一定要交 / 可否後補,亦唔好pm admin詢問。
    • 亦唔好問「我之前無寫,見到報讀嘅科目派左 Interview,應唔應該補」或者「收到 Interview 應唔應該補」。
  • PolyU 嘅大部分科目並唔要求申請人交 Personal Statement / Ref letter。 引述官網FAQ: You NEED NOT submit more documents than required as non-required documents will not be considered by departments. Please check the “Additional Documents Required” section of e-prospectus for the details.

睇咗咁多篇personal statement之後,發現8成同學有個通病,就係唔夠personal。記住只有記描抒嘅文章先係personal,論說文一定唔personal。
❎因為我有好強嘅communication skills所以我適合讀XXX
→唔敍事邊個知你有幾強嘅communication skills?
❎我讀咗某某HD/AD,我學識咗XXXX
→你交表有寫你讀緊咩,而你啲同學個個都學識咗果樣嘢,點解要收你唔收第二個
✅我參加咗某某嘅課外活動,每年得15個位,我學識咗XXX
✅我屋企係開XX舖頭嘅,我F6果年暑假去幫手,發現XXX,所以我想讀XXX
✅我去過做義工,某個活動我好深刻,果時得我一個負責XXX

如果你需要人proofread,可以講埋自己報邊間咩科,俾 @ugfn1000 望望,睇睇大路嘢啱唔啱。

Personal Statement常見問題:
問:我啲活動完全唔關事,所以唔知寫咩好。
答:活動唔需要關你果科事,只需要關你性格事。例如你aim finance但活動係去家庭服務中心做義工,你可以寫你因為服務小朋友同老人家而變得十分細心,有利你讀啲要對數字嘅科目。

問:我返啲工同果科冇關,係咪skip咗佢唔寫好啲?
答:寫part time唔係寫job duties為主,因為都會同人撞,unless你嘅工作係兒子/女兒。寫part time應該集中喺返工某日最深刻嘅經歷,例如有客打爛嘢你點處理等等,所以無關科系嘅工依然可以寫。

問:我中學嘅活動、比賽可唔可以寫?
答:絕對可以,有幾多人ad/hd有活動啫,唔寫冇嘢寫啦,但小學、幼稚園果啲就真係唔好寫了。

問:我冇參加活動,又冇返part time,你又叫我咪寫讀書學到咩,咁我寫咩好?
答:寫你成世人最深刻嘅經歷同體會,例如有日你放學返屋企,執紙皮個婆婆突然扭親腰,你叫佢放低啲紙皮去睇跌打仲要陪佢去,佢都唔肯放低啲紙皮,你最後如何解決呢件事。

如果有其他PS相關問題隨時pm我 @ugfn1000 寫好想比我望下都可以pm。只限一般問題,深入意見需酌情收費。

*註: Non JUPAS 本科收生並唔要求學生提交CV;不過見偶然有人問起,都想俾有興趣嘅同學參考。

作為一個send 12間公司有4間in我,4間都second in 4間都話請嘅我,等我分享一下寫CV嘅心得

可包括以下欄目:
About me (3個point形容自己性格取向、價值觀)
Education 
(大專/大學,寫埋gpa->中學,寫埋咩electives;exchange都按時間倒序插入去,寫埋你係邊個programme嘅Exchange)
Work Experience 
(唔關事嘅part time都要寫﹗唔好因為唔關事就唔寫,如果冇就作喺親戚公司做過。Job duties要盡量寫得同你申請嘅果份工相關啲。用時間倒序排列)
Qualifications 
(DSE以外嘅考試/牌照寫呢邊,例如IGCSE中文、IELTS、急救牌等,以時間倒序排列)
Awards 
(獎項,以時間倒序排列,中學果啲都可以寫,獎學金都寫呢度)
Skills 
(最基本寫Word and Data Processing: MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint,其他常見skills係programming language; Design and Publishing Skills: Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Canva; 影音處理等,如果真係除咗MS Office就冇嘢寫,可以寫soft skills:communication skills, multitasking skills, ability to work under stress, leadership skills, time management skills etc.)

常見問題:
問:我完全冇關事嘅嘢,個CV會好空白好樣衰,點算?
答:通常咁問我嘅人CV都寫到兩頁,我喺呢度答你唔到﹐pm我啦 @ugfn1000

問:GPA低、DSE分數低都要寫?
答:唔想寫就唔好寫,最緊要你其他位夠嘢寫

問:份工唔關事係咪唔寫好啲?
答:照寫,等你返過嘅工多到可以篩走啲先任性

問:上莊寫唔寫好?
答:如果係Grad job就寫,第二份工起唔駛寫

問:咩獎要寫咩獎唔駛寫?
答:如果你成世人得過嘅獎都係得3個就3個寫哂啦,如果多過3個cut走中學果啲,然後揀最勁果啲寫

問:我諗唔到About me寫咩/我冇qualifications/awards
答:諗唔到就唔好寫,其他項目夠寫就得,如果呢3樣都冇但其他項目都唔夠就pm我 @ugfn1000

問:Referee駛唔駛寫落去?
答:有啲人會寫,但我自己唔會寫,等你in咗佢要先寫,因為你唔會知你會唔會交完份CV果日未in就已經同referee嘈交

** 如果你有其他諗法,請按自己意思做便可。

註:可以用嚟參考,唔好抄,唔好拎嚟改,請由頭開始寫起。

As an aspiring computer scientist, I am keen to pursue a degree in Computer Science from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The university’s strong reputation as one of the top institutions to study this field is both inspiring and humbling.

Throughout my academic career, I have developed a passion for understanding how technology operates and works on multiple levels. My studies have provided me with enough knowledge to begin work on coding projects as well as experience working in both Mac OS X and Windows environment. In addition, I have gained exposure with multiple programming languages such as Python, C++, Java, etc. which have helped me build the confidence necessary to continue advancing in the field. 

My goal is to continue enriching my technical skills while also exploring new theories in computer science through research and projects. Participating in various related extracurricular activities, competitions,and hackatons has enabled me to gain further insight into problem-solving approach’s within the discipline, allowing me to experiment more effectively with innovative solutions. 

I believe the courses offered by HKUST will help develop my existing strengths and provide the flexibility needed for personal growth within this subject area whereas its practical applications equipped with modern technological resources will allow for independent initiatives leading towards research opportunities that capture my interests deeply. I believe that pursuing this program is a great fit for me due to its prestige and outreach within Asia Pacific region providing an excellent pathway towards pursuing higher academic goals in future if desired as well.
