1.The opening paragraph： Why this subject matter？
2.Are you really prepared？
因为研究所只收少数学生，所以学校想要学生展现出他们已经准备在研究所发光发热。因此，你已经具备所有基础技能了吗？ 你上过什么课？ 你上过什么其他课程让自己更了解这个领域？这些问题都是学校想问的。当你在尝试回答时，不要照抄成绩单、简历上的东西。 选择两到三个经验或你在其他课堂上所学到的东西，说说这些经验影响了你什么和为什么你想要继续进修。
3.Why This School？
展现出你已经彻底了解你申请的program。 也就是看过每一个课程介绍、知道教职员阵容和该校或该科系引以为傲的special program（现在是时候拍些马屁了）
4.What are Your Future Plans？
假设你已经毕业，下一步计画是什么？ 你要进入业界工作还是待在学界？ 你要如何应用你在研究所所学？ 换句话说，告诉学校这些你即将学到的实际应用知识、你将认识的人才和在学所体验的一切经验能如何帮你达到你人生的梦想。

Dear Mr. /Mrs. ：
I appreciate that you can take time off your busy schedule to read my letter. This is a letter of my motivation to apply for the Master degree of Precision Manufacturing（MPM） of University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland （SUPSI）.
First， allow me to introduce myself. My name is Liu Yang. I’m a first grade postgraduate of Guangdong University of Technology（GDUT）. My major is Mechanical Engineering and Automation. I get my bachelor＇s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Automation at Wuhan University of Technology in 7thJuly， 2007. After I graduated from my university， I worked in Jiangling automobile joint-stock company for about 1year. Then I took the Postgraduate entrance examination and was enrolled in GDUT at last.
There are some hearty reasons why I like SUPSI and the major of MPM：
First，I am interested in MPM， for I have been studying in Mechanical Engineer- ing and Automation since I started my university life. It’s well known that this major plays a foundational role of the developing of industry and it is easy for us to find a ， in my opinion，is a similar major with Mechanical Engine- ering and tly speaking， it’s the specialization and concretion of Mechanical Engineering and Automation. MPM in SUPSI based on a set of prominent and well balanced lectures that not only promote individual profess- nal skills and cultivate their ability but also their creativity， management level and shape attitude. I think I can get more professional knowledges than I can get inland and extend my knowledge fields to enhance my competitive strength.
