Renmin-Melbourne student profiles

Qianjin Zhang 张乾瑾, Master of Public Policy and Management (Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Melbourne)

Qianjin ZhangI really enjoy my overseas study life at The University of Melbourne. Our subjects are quite interesting and practical. There are several types of subjects, such as lectures, seminars and tutorials, in which you can train and improve yourself in different ways. Besides that, the teachers like to give us open-minded topics and I can choose what I like to study and discuss. You never feel bored by your study here.

Also, The University of Melbourne provides us with abundant resources and information. For example, the library offers some workshops to guide students how to research information and how to use the literature management software.

我非常享受在墨尔本大学的留学生活。我们的课程都很有趣而且非常实践。这边的课程类型有讲座、小组讨论和小组指导等,通过这些不同类型的课程,我们可以从不同的方面训练和提高自己。除此之外,老师们都倾向于给我们很开放的话题来思考和讨论,所以我们可以选择自己感兴趣的话题来学习,这样就不会觉得课程很无聊了。

另外,墨尔本大学给我们提供了非常丰富的资源和信息。比如,图书馆会为学生们开设很多培训课来指导我们如何利用学术资源,如何使用文献管理软件等等。

I enjoy the variety of workshops as an important part of my studies here. There are many free workshops offered by different offices. I especially enjoy the academic skill workshops, where you can train your academic reading and writing, improve English skills and so on. They also provide one-to-one guidance for your academic improvement and career development. It is also easy to join associations or clubs to make more like-minded friends and also enrich your life. I have joined the Melbourne University Chorus Society and I love the weekly rehearsal.

培训班是我在墨大学习非常喜欢和享受的一部分。每周都会有不同机构提供的大量不同类型的免费培训班。墨尔本大学学术能力中心开的培训班是最吸引我的,每一次培训都会有很有经验的指导老师给我们很多学术能力提升的建议。他们还提供一对一的辅导,非常有帮助。另外,在墨尔本大学,我们可以参加各种社团和俱乐部,不仅可以认识志趣相投的朋友也可以丰富课外生活。我这学期参加了学校的合唱团,每周的排练都是非常愉快的时光。

This one-year overseas study at The University of Melbourne would be an amazing and unforgettable experience. Join and enjoy it! You will never regret it!

这一年在墨尔本大学的留学生活一定会是一段精彩难忘的经历。加入并享受吧!绝不会后悔的!

Jingnan Guo 郭京楠, Master of Social Policy (Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Melbourne)

Jingnan GuoI have studied in the same school for five years. I wanted to make some changes and have a look at the world outside. The University of Melbourne is the best university in the Oceania. So I chose this program without any hesitation. The major of my undergraduate program is Urban Management, which is closely related to social policies. When I began to choose the topic for my thesis, I found I was interested in the social policy during the rapid progress of urbanisation.

我在中国人民大学学习、生活了五年。我想要换一个环境,想要看一看外面的世界是什么样子。加之墨尔本大学是澳洲最好的大学,所以我毫不犹豫的选择了参加这个合作项目。

我本科的专业是城市管理,与社会政策密不可分。当我在选择、确定本科论文的题目时,我发现我最感兴趣的领域是城市化进程中的社会政策问题。

I love it here. I love the beautiful campus, the professional teachers, the friendly classmates and so on. What I enjoy most is lying on the grassland, having a cup of coffee.

我非常喜爱这里。我喜欢美丽的校园,专业的老师和友善的同学等等等等。我最喜爱的就是握着一杯咖啡慵懒的躺在草坪上享受着和煦的阳光。

If you want to experience totally different culture, enjoy beautiful scenery and practice your English at the same time. This program must be your best choice.

If I have the chance, I'd like to complete my PhD at The University of Melbourne.

如果你想要体验不同的文化之旅,欣赏绝美的自然风光,同时还可以大大提高英语水平,这个项目绝对是你的不二之选!

如果有机会,我希望能在墨尔本大学完成博士阶段的学习。

Yupei Chen 陈玉佩, Master of Social Policy (Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Melbourne)

Yupei ChenI graduated from Renmin University of China in 2013 as a sociology major student. Then I continued my education with a Master of Social Work at Renmin Universiy.

2013年我从中国人民大学社会学系本科毕业,之后继续在人民大学读社会工作硕士。

I am very much enjoying my study here in Melbourne. The University of Melbourne is such a vibrant campus and has various opportunities to offer. I can always benefit from the exciting new insights in class and something that interests me outside class.

我非常喜欢在墨尔本大学的学习生活。墨大的校园充满活力,提供各种各样的机会。在课堂中能够学到新的知识,课堂之外也总能发现令我感兴趣的活动。

It is definitely a great choice to take a year studying in a foreign country if you hope to learn more (not merely in the sense of academic). Melbourne and UniMelb would be a wonderful option.

如果你希望学习更多(不仅仅是学术意义上的),留学一年是一个很好的机会。墨尔本和墨尔本大学也是一个很棒的选项。

Wenxin Xia 夏文心, Master of Public Policy and Management (Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Melbourne)

Wenxin XiaI have always dreamed of studying abroad. Although School of Public Administration and Policy in Renmin University of China ranks No.1 in China, as a pioneer of the new public management movement,  Australia can supply me with a great chance to explore the field in a  broader perspective. I was attracted to this project when I first entered in Renmin University of China and I am really happy to participate in such a program, to learn more cutting-edge knowledge and help to better build the Chinese characteristics of public administration.

一直以来我就对海外学期非常期待,虽然中国人民大学的公共管理学院是中国第一的公共管理学院,但是作为新公共管理运动的先驱者,西方国家,尤其是澳大利亚是一个能让我开拓更广阔的视野去学习和了解公共管理领域的好地方。刚入学我就被这个项目所吸引,希望能够有机会参加这样的项目,了解更多知识,更好的建设有中国特色的公共管理。

I like to study at The University of Melbourne because it makes me feel alive. When I first arrived at The University of Melbourne it was late winter. I was immediately attracted by the beautiful campus, and the antique buildings. Everywhere is full of vitality. Learning and living in such a wonderful university is really such good luck.

我很喜欢在墨大的校园里学习,它让我感觉生命是鲜活的。刚到墨大的时候,正值冬末,这美丽的校园,古色古香的建筑,和到处都充满着的活力与人文关怀深深的吸引了我。能在这样一个绝妙的大学里学习与生活真的是一种幸运。

One exciting part of my study at The University of Melbourne is that I can communicate with many excellent professors and teachers. This semester I selected a philosophy class. In the classroom we carry out discussions on some very controversial issues. The teacher encourages us to speak freely and never judges the right or wrong of our speech. On the contrary, he guides us in the process of discussion and I really benefit a lot.

在墨大学习非常令人感到振奋的一个方面就是与不同老师的交流。这学期我选修了一门哲学课,在课堂上我们会就一些很有争议的问题进行交流和讨论。主讲老师并不会去告诉你你的观点对或者不对,他很鼓励我们畅所欲言,然后在我们发言的过程中引导我们去思考,这让我受益匪浅。

Compared with the higher education we took domestically, studying abroad can definitely give you unprecedented challenges and new experiences. Here you need to use English to talk, you need to cooperate or debate with your classmates from around the world, you have to balance the dual pressures of study and daily life, and you have to deal with homesickness for family and friends. But as long as you conquer all these obstacles, you will become a powerful person.

相对于一直以来在国内接受的高等教育,海外学习绝对可以给你前所未有的挑战和体验。在这里你需要用英文去侃侃而谈,你需要和来自世界各地的同学们或合作或辩论,你要平衡学习与生活的双重压力,你要消化在夜深人静的时候对家乡和亲朋好友的思念。而这一切,只要你战胜了,你就一定能成为一个强大的人。
