IMMIGRATION HISTORY: Since I have just visited Place name to participate program name ‘, this is my first trip (year A.D to year A.D) to abroad country and my immigration history is recorded in my passport. This time I wish to travel Australia for my further education in Agriculture Business Management at Diploma and Advanced Diploma Level
The reasons behind choosing Australia because of stimulating environment, safety, friendly, laid-back nature, excellent education system and high standard of living. I prefer Australia as a destination behind US and UK because of the cultural diversity, friendly natives, and high quality of education. Schools and employers all over the world recognize degrees from Australian schools. Graduates from Australian schools are highly sought after due to the impressive international reputation of the Australian education system. This system is carefully regulated by the Australian government in order to maintain the high standards of education associated with the country. Australia’s standard of living
is amongst the highest in the world. Living expenses and tuition costs are considerably lower in Australia than they are in the United States and United Kingdom. Australia is the wonderful country with naturally beautiful in itself and technologically advancement and it has unlimited future for genuine students. Quality part of the Australian education is the great rewarding point in international scenario. Institutions in Australia offer a wide variety of courses and degrees, so international students can easily find the school and field that are right for them. One of the most appealing aspect of the country for international students is the quality of scientific research. Australia is at the forefront of new technology and innovations. Students in Australia can take advantage of the country’s impressive technology and research resources. Over the years, Australia has been producing thousands of skilled manpower for the different field in the world. So, it has been popular for best education hub over a decade for international students.
Due to Australia’s high commitment for providing quality education, it has been placed 3rd study destination after US and UK. Moreover wide varieties of practical courses are available in 1100 institutions of Australia. Also Australia has low crime rate and strict gun control laws providing a safe environment. The Education Services For Overseas Students (ESOS) framework protects the right of international students studying in Australia. Australia also protects the tuition fees of international students through the Tuition Protection Service (TPS) provision. Though the other faculty of Agriculture as Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management (B.Sc. Environmental Management), Bachelor of Technology in Environmental Engineering, B.Sc. in Environmental Science, B.Sc Ag, B.Sc in Forestry, Bachelors in Veterinary and Animal Husbandry are listed and taught in my home country but the particular Subject Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Agriculture Business Management which I want to study is not included in any university and college. Hence, considering all the above, I decided to study in Australia.
WHY NOT OTHER ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES: Australia is wealth creator country with agriculture on 2nd rank as well as food importer and producer with advanced agriculture technology as it is an important component for a strong economy in Australia. It’s infrastructure and it is growing rapidly which will definitely give me a cutting-edge type of education is gaining a lot of knowledge about agriculture management, agriculture funding and food security. This is the main reason to choose Australia for study as I will be able to experience more about its business and agriculture sector development which I will implement in my home country in order to develop agriculture business sector as its a major factor for country’s economy and also titled as country of farmers from ages.
Tuition fees is high and as US is not a gun-free country which eventually makes it a dangerous country. US crime rate is high as we have been hearing frequent violence in a public place due to gun-free status. Whereas U.K high living expenses, a recent change in immigration rules and the cold climate were an unappealing factors to me. Canada is mostly cold having 8 months remained very cold (Snowy) and it’s quite hard to bear for the international student like me.
WHY NOT HOME COUNTRY: Nepal as being the developing country is far behind the modern learning and teaching methods. The academic institutions of Nepal still lack the skilled professional staffs, modern revised courses with
International exposure. Nepalese education gives more value to student’s grades rather than their abilities and possibilities. Nepal’s University rankings are very low compared to Australia. And also, it takes a longer time to finish an alternative course. Sometimes whole year lapses for the result publication. I have seen my seniors who had done their bachelor from Nepal are still struggling to get satisfying jobs as they lack in practical operational and communication skills.
So, these were the penetrating reasons to choose Australia rather than in my home countries.
WHY did I choose to study Agriculture course starting from DIPLOMA? Regarding the selection of course, that is the Diploma of Agriculture leading to AD of Agri-Business Management. Agriculture is one of my area of interest of study as well as I have a family business background as my father owns a farm named ‘Cherry Agriculture Farm and Research Centre’. It offers me the opportunity to develop the technical and conceptual skills required business as well as the agro-based industries in my home country. Being the largest and oldest country on traditional agriculture concept and more than 85% of total population-based agriculture income, my country has been backward due to the lacking of technical as well as food grading concepts on daily basis markets and industries. To overcome all these drawbacks and to revolutionize the agricultural industries in my country as well as to upgrade my family business, i preferred this course. So, an internationally recognized Australian Diploma degree definitely will assist me for my future career and underwrite the revolutionary attempts on the fields on behalf of my country’s potentiality.
The Diploma of Agriculture course is designed to meet the global demand for high-quality as it is the world’s oldest, largest, and most important industry. It is the business that enables the world to grow, trade and feed everyone utilizing the Earth’s finite resources. Agribusiness encompasses half the world’s labour force, half the world’s assets, and 40% of modern consumer purchases. It drives the public policy issues in economic development, food security, trade, nutrition, natural resources, protecting plant and animal diversity, genetics, and economic, social and environmental priorities. Agribusiness has achieved industrial-scale efficiencies in the developed world, but these are not replicated evenly throughout the developing world. I have just passed my +2 level and learned few traditional methods of agriculture through my farm which is, I think insufficient for my career life, but, at the same time, I feel a dire need to upgrade myself by taking advanced knowledge of agriculture business management for promoting my upcoming life and career, at the same time it also makes me to be more confident and competent to face many global challenges and take global opportunities in my related sector. In this sense, I feel it is necessary to study Advanced Diploma of Agriculture Business Management which will instil me the necessary knowledge of agriculture and some business entrepreneurial skills. Completing this course from Australia one of the genuine and established academic institute-Academies Australasia Institute will make me complete and whole in all sense for my sound career development.

After analyzing and interpreting various course offered, excellent background, supportive environment, affordable fees, College name is enlisted firstly in my choice. This is one of the most innovative, dynamic and richly diverse education centres in College name helps student in achieving their career development and professional aspiration through career education, guidance and information.
