What their Students Say

为了取得硕士学位而再次赴海外留学,已经快一年了。对于留学脚步踏遍欧美大陆的我来说,西式生活和学习已经习以为常。在此,我将自己的个人心得简要罗列一下,希望它能让其他即将出国深造的中国学子作为参考。

首先要跟大家讲明的是,国外留学并非崇洋媚外,主要是体验不同,并不代表国外更好。美国,加拿大,英国,虽然学习和生活模式略有差异,但是本质类似,都讲究自主学习和探究能力,与中国国内按部就班添砖加瓦的教科书模式大不相同。一个注重灵活和实践,另一个则像盖房子一样扎实积累优秀经验,并不存在优劣之分。一般性来讲,不同于国内的高考模式导致的严进宽出,欧美的大学学府都讲究宽进严出。除了诸如常青藤和剑桥牛津等世界顶尖级学府,只要你符合最基本的要求,往往能够进入大学就读。但是如果想要毕业,你必须付出真正的努力,否则等待你的不是停学就是一次又一次的复读。不过也不用对此过分担心,只要不是以混日子的心态来求学,投入应有的精力和努力,就不会有什么问题,毕竟我们中华学子在学习能力上一向是出类拔萃的。

于我个人而言,我认为出国求学学习知识其实并不是重点,培养自立能力和增长阅历才是最主要的目的。对于中国传统教育方式来讲,虽然让我们在家长和老师的领导下最大限度地避免了走弯路,完美借鉴了前人的宝贵经验,从而有了学识上的优势,但是因为一直被引导,所以自主能力远逊于欧美地区这些早早就习惯自己拿主意的学生。因此,出国之后需要自力更生的我们,正好借此锻炼自己。此外,作为发达国家,再加上与我们不同的文化体系,欧美国家的生活有很多值得我们学习和借鉴的地方,。在体验新鲜感的同时,也让我们得到了宝贵的生活和学习经验,所谓的前车之鉴后事之师。眼界也会变的更开阔,思维也更加具有全局观,印证了莘莘学子们的信条“

简而言之,还是应了那句老话——只要功夫深,铁杵磨成针。成功的留学离不开不懈的努力。而且要记住,虽然背井离乡,但是作为中国学子你并不是孤独的,身边还有其他一同求学的同胞可以同舟并济,而且祖国永远是我们的坚实后盾。最后要说的是,身在他乡,不可忘本,更要明白自己作为留学生,一言一行是会代表祖国的,要勤奋自勉,为国争光,尽展华夏之风。
