Dear Sir or Madam:
My name is …. I will graduate from Zhejiang Normal University in June 2014. My major is environmental science specialized in water pollution control and management. I am writing this letter to apply for the WAREM Master’s Program at the University of Stuttgart.
My lecturer Haiying Yu is a real knowledgeable person with high academic achievements who received her doctorate in Germany. She was a very influential teacher to me and I have heard a lot about Germany’s academic strengths, superior research facilities and great academic environment from her during my study. She cultivated my ever-growing thirst for German education and it prompts me to further my study in a German university and become an excellent scholar like her. Then I searched for environmental-related majors for master´s degree in DAAD and the WAREM Program attracted my attention. I believe that it is what I was searching for.
China is experiencing a rapid urbanisation, but the lack of resources is a hindrance. So this major has its practical significance for my country. The recognition of the importance of sustainable water utilisation motivated me to further my study in this area. The programme focuses on the water resources utilisation and management, which are exactly what I want to learn. I have three reasons to join in the WAREM programme: First, Stuttgart, as the headquarters of many world-famous enterprises, may offer me a lot of internship opportunities to enhance my professional skills. Second, the University of Stuttgart has excellent research facilities in the water sector, among which the largest prototype waste water treatment plant in Europe is particularly appealing. Third, the programme can provide me with not only an international study environment but also the opportunity to receive a double degree.
In a word, the studying experience in WAREM would be very helpful for my future career. And after thorough consideration, I strongly believe that I am also well qualified for the WAREM Master’s Programme, because I have a solid basic knowledge background, especially in chemistry and biology, which can be seen from my excellent academic performance. Furthermore, the academic background in water-related subjects makes me feel capable of dealing with my future study in Stuttgart, for example, I’ve learnt fluid mechanics in the course of environmental engineering principles.
Moreover, in order to develop my theoretical and practical skills in a balanced way, I invested considerable time and energy into the research work and participated social practices. As for my academic experience, I did five research projects during the last three years and published a paper in "Guizhou Agricultural Sciences" in 2013, a core journal in China. In practice field, I also applied for a patent on a new-style burnisher in 2013 by cooperating with four team members. You can see my enormous enthusiasm in this field. Additionally, I had many internships and practical activities to improve my professional knowledge and skills.
I checked the curriculum and found myself really liking it. This major is my passion and strength, and my teachers also see my potential in this field. I have the confidence to complete the courses satisfyingly with these advantages. I would like to carry on in-depth researches, continue to pursue the PhD degree and finally find a job in a research institute or a university in China. On this platform, I may meet more influential experts and have a better perspective. These advantages will surely facilitate my job hunting in China. My career goal is to make a difference in the water resource management in China, even it may be just a small one. The water resource management knowledge and skills learnt from Stuttgart would make it much easier to achieve my life goals.
The aggravating drinking water quality of China threatens people's drinking security. It’s a top national concern and this problem strengthened my resolve to improve the China’s water quality. High-level environmental engineers and new technologies are badly needed here. I would use the platform of WAREM to acquire as much knowledge and skills as I can if I have the opportunity to join in it, and return to my motherland after graduation to apply what I’ve learnt to my work. I’m ready to dedicate myself to the career of water resource utilization and sustainable water resources development in China.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you soon.
