Briefly describe any research you conducted about study in your home country or in other countries, before you made the decision to choose your selected academic program and education institution in Australia:
I searched countries like USA, UK and Australia etc. I have compared that it is very difficult to get admission in USA considering its entrance requirement of GMAT/GRE test and also study cost is not affordable in USA. The master degrees offered in UK are of only one-year duration that doesn’t recognized in Nepal and I want to do 2 years Master. I Choose Australia because Australian studies are well known for quality education and the students from all over the world are studying over there and after obtaining proper qualification they make their future bright. Australia offers a diverse range of study options for international student. Australian institutions focus on developing real knowledge in students by offering the courses which are practically designed as per the current company’s requirement which is totally lacking in Nepal study. Also, Australia offers Post Study Work opportunity for international students which are good opportunity to have international work experience. It has Tuition Protection Scheme which makes secure about the paid fees and it has ESOS Act which deals about the rights of international students and such good provisions are not available in most of the other country i.e. USA, UK, New Zealand. The climatic condition in Australia is also similar to Nepal where it will be easy for me to adjust. Other some European country requires learning own language for the admission which takes a longer time.
The biggest reason for choosing abroad study rather than my home country is the lack of practical knowledge in Nepal. I have researched about some Universities i.e. Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University, Pokhara University in Nepal and found that most of the Universities offering the IT course have limited specializations and have limited practice facilities in the classrooms & also Nepalese qualification is not globally competitive. I already studied a long time in Nepal and now I also want to experience new education style from abroad which will not only gives me qualification but also will get opportunity to interact with the students from different nations, can exchange culture and ideas each other’s, will know the international environment, time management system, will develop my personality. So, I have decided to study in Australia not in my home country Nepal.
- After identifying the skilled occupation and associated international career opportunities available to you upon successful completion of your selected academic program, list any other reasons for choosing this particular academic program and education institution rather than a similar course at an education institution elsewhere:
After a lot of research, brainstorming and web exercise, I shortlisted the Universities like Federation University, Victoria University and University of Sunshine Coast, Central Queensland University, La Trobe University and at the end, I selected University Name. I compared academic and English entry requirements, tuition fees, course structure, specializations available, class size, facilities provided to international students and location with other above-mentioned universities and finally satisfied with University Name at its Melbourne campus offers small class size and student support services. International students will gain a quality education with small-sized classrooms recognized in the top XX% of universities in the world. It’s creating new and modern facilities to all of its students and continually investing in the latest technology, spaces, and support services. It also offers a very good platform for students regarding research with a lot of training opportunities. I will have 5-star study experiences while studying in The University Name. It is one of the world’s top 150 young universities. As per my research 9 out of 10 University Name graduates are employed within four months of finishing their degree and its graduates are currently using their skills and expertise to drive change in more than 5000 communities worldwide. Comparing those factors with other universities, getting suggestions from a counselor and getting feedback from the students who are already studying in Australia I finally decided to study in The University Name which provides quality education and my interested degree in very affordable cost.
