Write how you wish to be a more globally oriented person by paying attention to the five elements for global competence. This statement is meant to help you gain an overview of your undergraduate life from the early stage to graduation and plan what kind of activities you wish to pursue throughout your student years. Also, later in your student life, this statement will serve as a reminder of you of your first-year resolution and enable you to reflect on your improvement and growth.
Choose at least three out of four “Categories of Activities,” as outlined by Go Global Gateway: 1. Languages; 2. Classes/Courses; 3. Experiences Abroad; 4. International Activities. For each activity, write a brief report and upload it to My Page.
The uploaded reports on the activities you participate will become the core of your portfolio. You will be able to download the portfolio in a PDF format.
Review your approved activities and write how you believe you have gained “global competence,” especially in relation to the five elements. You may add a further statement noting how you plan to be even more globally oriented or about the new goals you developed as you participated in various global activities. After your application statement is approved, you will be able to access to a PDF version of the certificate.
You may continue to expand your portfolio after receiving the certificate by adding more reports of global activities until your graduation. This will enable you to have a clear and detailed set of records of all the global activities during your undergraduate years. The portfolio will serve as a valuable asset as you launch on your global career!
