這是大學面試錦囊系列 (Tips on University Entrance Interviews)第2輯—Why do you want to attend this University ? (為何報讀本校?)

Why do you want to attend the University of Hong Kong? (談談你選擇香港大學的原因)。回答這條問題,可以考慮談兩方面。首先,說明你選擇的大學為何吸引你?其二,說明為何你認為本身的條件適合你選擇的大學。 

你選的當然不一定是香港大學。但你選的大學可能是規模較大的,或規模較小的。因此,以下有兩種參考答案。其次,你本身的考試成績也可能是很好的,或者不太符合你期望的,因此,以下也有兩種答案。二剩二等於四種答案,互相組合。 

可以先談大學。如果約見你的是香港大學/中文大學/科技大學/理工大學等,可以參考以下答案:

I’m attracted to [University ABC]/I choose [University ABC] because it has an accredited [faculty of law/department of English] it has the best [faculty of law/department of English] in Hong Kong it has a very good [faculty of law/department of English].  And I desire to receive a very good [legal/English literature] education.  [University ABC] also has a very good performance in world university rankings, and is one of the top [four] in Hong Kong.  I know I will receive a decent education here./I’m looking forward to an exciting university life here. (談了兩方面:你選擇的學院/學系,你選擇的大學。)

 再談個人。如果你的成績考得不俗,可以參考以下答案:

1I’m confident that I have solidly acquired the foundation knowledge and skills to study law/English literature, and I will study the subject with diligence and enthusiasm. (第二部分一定要講,只講第一部分就太驕傲了。)

2I have built a good foundation with good results in [subjects A, B and C].  I hope that my solid [science/social science] foundation and my enthusiasm in the study of [law/English literature] will provide me with a promising outcome of my study in your renowned university.
 如果約見你的是城市大學/浸會大學/嶺南大學等,可以參考以下答案:

Some of my friends choose universities based on parents’ expectations or peers advice, but I set my own educational and career goals.  I want to attend [University DEF/your university] because it has a reputation for providing a practical(實用的) /liberal(博雅的)/heuristic (全人的、啟發性的)education that can prepare students for the real world.  Many programs of [your University] bring [social/real-life] issues into the classroom and many classes are very practical.  I am really interested in the real world.  Therefore, I will jump at the chance to enrol in [University DEF/your university].

 如果你認為你的成績相對來說只算中等或者並不出眾,可以參考以下答案:

I first got to know [sociology/transport and logistics] when I was studying in form 5.  At that time, I was so amazed by the interesting discipline of [sociology/transport and logistics].  I made up my mind then to dedicate myself to the study of the subject.  I have taken [social science subjects] in school, such as [liberal studies, geography and economics], and obtained [fair-to-high/passing] scores in these subjects.  Although I may not be particularly bright or smart, I am a very enthusiastic and diligent student

  修辭立其誠 (Always remain completely frank and honest)
不過,interview旨在讓admission officers了解applicant,也讓applicant了解自己報讀的大學。所以,事前準備、表達的技巧和條理雖然重要,但真誠更重要。(Should you strive to tell the admission committee what you think they want to hear, or give the committee an idea of who you are and how you think?)
