এসওপি’র শুরুটা সবচেয়ে বেশি গুরুত্বপূর্ণ। কেননা এই অংশই প্রফেসরকে আপনার সম্পর্কে সম্যক ধারণা দিবে। সে কারনে আপনার বর্তমানে কোন কাজের সাথে জড়িত থাকলে শুরুতেই তা উল্লেখ করা ভালো। কোন বিষয়ে আবেদন করতে চাচ্ছেন এর পরই সেই বিষয়ে আলোকপাত করতে হবে।

After one year’s work experience as a research technician at [redacted], one of the US’s leading research institutes, I want to return to academic study and undertake graduate studies in Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics at the University of [redacted].

শিক্ষাগত যোগ্যতা আলোচনার পরই কেনো আপনি অন্যদের তুলনায় এগিয়ে সেই দিকে ইঙ্গিত করতে হবে।

After graduating with a first class degree from [redacted], University of [redacted], I felt I should gain some practical experience working in a research environment to gain first-hand knowledge of what the life of a research scientist entails. I have loved every minute of my work: especially the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge projects and discuss ideas with senior biologists. I soon realized that, although I enjoy handling the complex equipment and processing the results, I am not going to be satisfied with carrying out routine procedures under the direction of others. I want to be part of the team that directs the course of the project. My senior colleagues have encouraged my ambition and feel that I have the potential for graduate studies.

যে বিষয়ে পড়াশুনা করতে চাচ্ছেন সেই বিষয় সর্ম্পকে আপনি কেমন ধারণা রাখেন, কতটা ইচ্ছা পোষণ করছেন-সে বিষয়ে প্রফেসরকে পরিষ্কার ধারণা দিতে হবে। চাইলে নির্দিষ্ট উদাহরণ দিয়ে সবকিছু পরিষ্কার করতে পারেন।

My love of biology started in high school. We had a young and enthusiastic teacher, Mrs [redacted], who took us on field trips and visits. She made sure we did as much practical work as was feasible, and demonstrated experiments that we hadn’t the equipment or time to do ourselves. She also encouraged us to read. I remember the impact reading Maynard Smith’s The Theory of Evolution had on me: I wanted to be able to explain such important ideas as clearly as he did. Quite naturally my first thoughts about a future career tended towards teaching – I wanted to be another Mrs [redacted].

গ্রাজুয়েশন লেভেলে কি কি নিয়ে পড়াশুনা করেছেন। কোন বিষয়ের উপর আপনার মনোনিবেশন ছিলো। কোন ধরণের গবেষণা কাজে নিয়োজিত ছিলেন। প্রজেক্টে কি নিয়ে কাজ করেছেন। এসব বিষয় নিয়ে খুঁটিনাটি বিষয়গুলো তুলে ধরতে হবে।

At undergraduate level, my interests became more focused. Although physiology and ecology came easy to me, it was biochemistry and cell biology that really captured my interest. We were fortunate to have good laboratories and excellent professors. I found that cell biology was an interdisciplinary undertaking: today you need a foundation in chemistry, physics and even IT to be at the forefront in this subject. This interdisciplinary aspect of the subject suits my abilities well. I have always performed well in all science subjects and find it challenging to apply the knowledge to practical problems. For this reason I chose to undertake a project in my final year on the behavior of protein molecules in high energy fields at [redacted]. The scientists at[redacted] were impressed with my practical skills and were happy to give me a recommendation that led to my present job.

ক্যারিয়ারের কোন উল্লেখযোগ্য দিক থেকে থাকলে সে বিষয়ে আলোচনা করতে পারেন। সামাজিক ক্ষেত্রে কোন অবদান, এক্সর্টা-কারিকুলার কোন কাজের সাথে জড়িত থাকলে সেগুলোকে সুন্দরভাবে উপস্থাপন করতে পারেন।

Many people have asked me why I did not proceed directly to graduate studies after graduating. The answer is that I wanted to make sure that I had chosen the right subject and the right place before embarking on a course of study that would involve many years of my life. The one-year gap has also given me time to work with the local Natural History Society: we take families on Sunday trips to the nearby National Park to help create awareness about environmental issues. I have also been a member and organizer of the [redacted] Film Society: we watch and discuss films from all over the world. I am looking forward to furthering my interest in film in the [redacted] Film club, at your university, and I also hope to use my passion for teaching in the [redacted]Social Outreach program.

সবশেষে যে বিষয়ে পড়তে যেতে চাচ্ছেন সে সম্পর্কে নিজের মতামত। কেনো পড়তে আগ্রহী হলেন-এ ধরণের আলোচনা করতে পারেন।

In selecting the University of [redacted] I have been influenced by the way your research program addresses biological questions at the levels of molecule, gene and cell. I am particularly looking forward to such courses as Developmental Biology and Bioinformatics. I am also excited to interact with Professors [redacted] and [redacted] whose work is closest to what I want to pursue for the original research component of the MS degree. I have been corresponding with [redacted], a current student, from whom I have learned about the collaborative environment at [redacted] where I will interact with talented students, teachers and industry professionals. I believe that I will be able to contribute to and learn from the academically challenging environment at the University of [redacted].
