“BACHELOR OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY”
Statement of Purpose (PRA01GHI)
I would like to introduce myself as Applicant Name , son of Parents Name, a permanent resident of Address and currently residing at Satdobato, Lalitpur Nepal. I was born DOB. I am passionate at the possibility of devoting my long term career to such a dynamic, fast-advancing field. So, I am determined to do a Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) from University for my professional development and progression in work.
Stating my Academic background, I have completed my SLC in 2016 AD with G.P.A from School Name, Address and 10+2 (Science) Higher Secondary Level in 2018 AD from School Name, Address with G.P.A. Then, with the plan to have further study in abroad, I prepared for IELTS and took the exam on Date and scored XX. After that, I researched various Colleges and Universities across the world to continue my further studies In Bachelor of Information Technology and finally decided to continue it in Australia.
While searching through different internet websites, I found Australia as the best destination for my higher Education rather than UK, USA. I found Australian education is better because it is more focused on practical training & live projects. The degrees and qualification from Australia are recognized by employers and leading educational institutions all around the world. The education system of our country is still lingering in decade old courses giving more priority to theory with less qualified lecturer while Australian education System adopts new technologies as soon as it is available in the global market giving more priority to practical knowledge through highly qualified instructors and educated professors. I also researched some other European countries i.e. Germany, Finland, Denmark, Austria but most of those countries also require to learn their own language which is tough to do and takes time as well also those countries have high crime rate in comparison with Australia. In addition to that many international students choose to study in Australia because of the cultural diversity, high quality of education, the standard of living, friendly natives and employment opportunities after the completion of our degrees under the Post Study Work (PSW). Education provided by Australian universities and colleges is world-class. I will be afforded with satisfactory job opportunities all over the world after studying in Australia which is not possible if I choose my country Nepal for further education. I am well aware with the fact that Australia follows ESOS (Education Services for Overseas Students) act 2000 for International students which deals about the right of international students and there is Tuition Protection Services (TPS) which mean our paid fee is safe in Australia. Also, it offers Post Study Work opportunities. While doing research about other countries i.e. UK, USA I was unable to find such good provision. Australia is also a very safe country in comparison with other countries. As, I found USA has high crime rate and after the mass shooting of Las Vegas on 1st October, 2016, I do not want to travel to USA. Similarly, getting admission in Information Technology courses is really hard in UK and the courses, as well as the living costs, are expensive over there. Before making the final decision, I also checked the website of Australia www.homeaffairs.gov.au, www.studyinaustralia.gov.au, www.australianuniversities.com.au and studied about the education system of Australian universities, visa policy and conditions. After doing this much research I am fully satisfied with Australia and applying for the same.
The reasons behind not choosing my hometown for my higher study is that I am not happy with the education system and curriculum of Nepal which is very old and it is heavily influenced by politics. It needs to be developed for more practical training and working with the latest technologies and in accordance with basic international education standards. The instructors here are locally produced and do not have quality because they are not exposed to the international system and they are not up-to-date with the technological advancements in IT field. Knowing, using and working with new technologies are a dream for students in our country. Moreover, globally renowned Universities lack in Nepal as the degree from Nepalese Universities is not globally accepted and nor recognized. Courses offered by Nepalese Universities and Colleges are not of International Standard that they do not meet the needs and demands of the modern market. The teaching system here focuses more on theoretical knowledge than practical. Also, there is lack of skilled and expert teaching faculty members to meet the standard of course. At present, Nepal has only four universities Tribhuwan University, Pokhara University, Kathmandu University and Purwanchal University where there are limited courses which are not up to date. The students need to attend various entrance examinations before admissions which create time delay on the study. So, I have no more interest left to study in my hometown.
While talking about, I am fascinated by Melbourne because it is named among the world’s most livable cities. The title is awarded to the city with the highest score for stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. If I got the chance to study in Melbourne, I’ll be living in a safe and vibrant city that offers world-class study options, services and the widest range of things to do. Melbourne is the best student city in Australia and the third best student city in the world, according to the prestigious QS Best Student Cities 2018.
After analyzing various education providers, I found University Name as the best match for me from every dimension including financial as I have heard about scholarships, academic, student support and other aspects as well. One of the main reasons for choosing University Name was also because of my desire to study is in Melbourne in Australia where the high number of Nepalese students enrolled for different courses. Moreover, I found the college is also well equipped with modern technologies and pieces of equipment, small-sized classes, presence of excellent teaching and sporting facilities, quality courses, accessible academic faculty and staffs are supporting. I found the university is the most suitable for me because Federation University is one of the Australian leading regional universities with a strong tradition of education and training delivery spanning. It is listed on the Commonwealth Register of Institution and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) as it has met the quality standards set out in the Australian law, which ensures to provide best possible educational services. The Study Centers of University Name is in Melbourne and Sydney which makes it easier to choose one as a destination. The course structure is also very effective as it provides hands-on, work-relevant courses that prepare graduates for a range of employment opportunities. The tuition fee is not that much expensive and is affordable for me. Apart from that, I have heard that it provides scholarships to international students and I am also expecting to get it. If it would be then, I would feel more convenient. By viewing the student reviews about I found this university very attractive and the university life being enjoyable. I also did research in other universities as Southern Cross University (SCU) and Charles Sturt University (CSU) for the same course as requiring the same academic qualifications as Fed University but these SCU and CSU have expensive tuition fees. Similarly, The Good Universities Guide declared, computing and IT students rate University Name higher for measures of Student Support and Overall Experience than any other university.
Choosing a career path can be stressful and overwhelming. Information Technology is incredibly diverse and it’s not only about fixing computers or laptops but in present society, information is dominant and information technology (IT) influences all kinds of human activity. The job market in computing and information technology is increasing nowadays. These jobs require skill, training and a logical thinking process. Many of these careers are demanding and stressful but most offer a considerable financial reward. This course will allow students to take their career in a number of different directions. Careers vary in manpower from Network Manager, Systems Analyst, Multimedia Developer, and Database Administrator and so on. IT graduates will also be prepared to specialize in far wider areas of interest. Thus, after completion of my course, I will have a lot of opportunities to work in different government, national and international companies. I will also take the opportunity to do Post Study Work (PSW) from which I aim to increase my practical knowledge and experience. I will be able to work for a lot of posts in IT field in some renowned IT companies back in my country like Mercantile, World Link, and Subisu with a considerable salary level. I believe my Australian degree will be appreciated and I will try my best to prove my potency. I have set sights on seeing me as an IT professional and I believe it would be possible only through University Name.
I preferred to choose the 3 years full-time course, i.e. Bachelor of Information Technology (Networking and Security) that it provides an in-depth understanding, focusing on managing materials and human resources efficiently to ensure a high standard of quality. I am aware that without a good financial status I would not be able to complete my course since living cost in Australia is high and my tuition fees per semester is around AUD 11850.00(Excluding Scholarship) Also the living expense in Australia is around AUD 600.00 per month. If I can get an opportunity to be a part of the intellectually stimulating environment, I am sure my talents will be put on optimal use. As for my academic strength, I have completed 10+2 level in science faculty. This study requires mathematical and computer skills to find a solution. I have studied Mathematics in my Intermediate level of Science (ISC) and it seems me to assist a lot for my further study of IT.
With lots of ambition, I am applying a Bachelor of Information Technology in Federation University, which will complete in three years. With a graduate degree and PSW in information technology, I would be able to broaden the sphere where I can best fit myself. I am confident that my international work experience and relevant degree will take me to a different level. I am such a person who can’t stay away from my family for a long time. While my nation is blooming in IT fields, so I have a plan on returning back to my homeland and pursue my career for the betterment of my country and myself. Though our country Nepal is a developing country, many development works and programs are going rapidly. Different big national and multinational companies are establishing day by day like different hydropower, banks, construction offices and yes, of course, different IT companies as well. Many companies like Softech Infosys, Improvement Company Nepal, Bharati-software company have established in Nepal are in seek of IT Technicians and IT professionals having international graduates. Moreover, after the recent election Government of Nepal has divided the country into different states, municipalities and village rural municipalities, wherein each government offices IT Technicians are to be employed compulsorily and after completion of graduate with gaining latest practical knowledge in PSW, I think I am capable to grab these opportunities having minimum NRs.50,000/- to 100,000/- salary. With this point of view, I am confident that I will make my investment back after my graduation from University Name.
I am aware of the visa conditions of maintaining academic growth. Hereby I want to assure you that I understand these conditions. I will not be able to change my educational provider for at least 6 months; I am not allowed to change from SVP to non-SVP educational provider. I need to notify address to my education provider and if by any circumstances I change my address the university has to be informed. I will only be able to work 20 hours per week. Maintain eligibility (80% attendance required and minimum passing marks required)
Being an ingenuous student, I want to assure if you grant me an opportunity to join in University Name, I will do my best to make you feel proud on having me as an international student.
Thanking you for having positive consideration on my application.
