I worked in a company name from Starting and end date. After that I started my IELTS classes and gave my IELTS examination on 5th may 2018(Score Sheet attached), as the Score was not sufficient then I started PTE classes. Then, recently I gave my PTE exam on 26th July 2018 (score sheet attached). This was the reason for my gap. After getting the results of my test I started to apply for Australia around 2 months for the processing.
Father name, mother name, Sisters name ( Father, Mother, and sisters) respectively hold income from the Salary, business and land lease at our home town/country with an annual income of Nrs.*******/- equivalent to AUD$ *****/- and will be sponsoring me for Masters of International Tourism and Hotel Management (MITHM) at Southern Cross University, Sydney, Australia.

If I am granted a visa I will be living with my maternal uncle Bishnu Poudel for a few months at 10/15-19 Tery Road West Ryde 2114 NSW. I will stay with him until I find a new apartment and I don’t think I will have any problems regarding accommodation in Australia.
WHY NOT IN NEPAL
Hospitality management courses are also available in Nepal. However, the colleges are limited which are Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management (NATHM), Academy of culinary arts and hospitality management. The quality of education in our country is poor as compared to Australia, the USA, and other developed countries. The teacher tends to focus more on theory rather than practical in Nepal. In such subject and area, practical and training based knowledge is imperative. After consulting with parents, seniors, teachers, and education counselors, I decided to go abroad. I searched for the courses in all countries including the USA and Europe. I cannot deny the fact that there are good colleges and universities in my home country that are offering postgraduate degree but there is only one or two of them offering Master of International Tourism and Hotel Management. The education system in my country lacks the ability to provide a practical based learning experience and specialization in the field of interest. It is easy to develop a sound theoretical knowledge, but it is a big challenge to gain practical expertise in respective fields. Hence getting a degree in Tourism and Hotel Management from a recognized university will put me in a better position in developing a strong resume and getting good jobs which will help me a lot in shaping my career. name the universities
WHY AUSTRALIA RATHER THAN OTHER COUNTRIES
However, I found that Australia is the best destination for international students. It is because, the first thing I liked the most is, and Australia doesn’t discriminate students whether they come from any region. On top of that, it has an English speaking environment with multicultural aspects and also the place for tourist with the popular destination. That creates opportunities for students like me who study hospitality management. I will have opportunities to get a world-class education as well as international experience serving people and promoting hospitality in Australia while I will be studying. Besides, Australia is the safest place for international students which matters a lot for my field.
Nepal is considered to be the top travel destination all over the world. Hence, tourism is growing immensely leading to the development of more national and international hotels. Hyatt Regency, Dwarika Hotel, JW Marriot, Hilton Hotel, Sheraton Hotel are few of the established and ongoing projects in our country thus; this course (Master of International Tourism and Hotel Management) assures me more opportunities in managerial level. Even so, having an international degree will make me more competent and demanding in Nepal and a postgraduate degree from an Australian University will be my Unique Selling Proposition to potential job providers in the Nepalese hospitality market.
I felt a strong urge to pursue my postgraduate education at an Australian University since the value of Australian education is of exceptional quality and has an excellent reputation all over the world. Australia has become one of the most sought educational destinations for students all over the world. It is now home to some of the world’s best universities with excellent education and infrastructures for students. It is evident from the fact that 19 of Australian Universities were ranked among the top 400 universities of the world (Times Higher Education World University Ranking). The degrees provided by these institutions are globally recognized and are accepted all over the world. Also, Australian universities have a well-founded reputation of consistently providing a skilled workforce that has made a significant contribution in all parts of society throughout the world. Therefore I am greatly looking forward to being part of an Australian University which will provide me with both globally valued education and the necessary exposure to pursue my career goals.
Another important factor is that Australia is popular among International Students in the standard of living. Australia’s standard of living is highest amongst other countries, living expenses and tuition fees are considerably lower in contrast to the United States of America and the United Kingdom. For an international student staying away from home a safe and friendly environment is another factor which Australia has been able to provide. Australia is home to residents from over 200 countries which makes it one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Exposure to multicultural environment allows international students to enjoy a diverse lifestyle and know about new traditions and cultural activities and also Australia has got the ESOS act, TPS act which protects our tuition fees and the PSW visa which help us to gain the international experience once we complete our master course. COMPARE WITH THE USA, UK, AND OTHER COUNTRIES.
WHY SOUTHERN CROSS UNIVERSITY
As making the decision of studying Master of International Tourism and Hotel Management was relatively easy due to the level of interest, selecting a university was tough as there are so many top universities in Australia which are suitable for achieving my goals. I have also researched many universities and colleges for the subject I intended to study in Australia and found couples of universities that matched my interest and area such as Southern Cross University, James Cook University, University of Western Sydney, La Trobe University and Torrens university in Sydney. Though, The University of Western Sydney and Torrens University are available in Sydney. After some research of my own and suggestions from consultancies in Nepal, I stumbled upon Southern Cross University. DO MORE RESEARCH ABOUT THE OTHEr UNIVERSITIES AS WELL, PUT SOME COMPARISION

After successful completion of my master’s degree, I would like to apply for PSW visa so that I can gain overseas experience to work effectively and efficiently in different hotels MORE ABOUT PSW BENEFITS. After that, I will return to my country as I believe after completion of my course I will be qualified to get a managerial position with a high salary in a hotel. Hotel Association of Nepal (HAN) has affirmed that, in the near future hotel industry in Nepal has the growing market with different international brands with their own international standards. All the practical and theoretical knowledge and the Degree from Southern University will definitely help me to sharpen my management skill and build my career up to the international level and help me to gain proper knowledge. Nepal is one of the tourist’s destination countries. Tourism is the largest industry in Nepal, and the country’s revenue depends on it. Nepal is a hotspot destination for adventure seeking people such as rock climbing, Rafting, Mountaineers. Besides, Nepal is rich in cultural heritage, a landscape which attracts the huge number of tourists. It is losing a huge number of revenue due to poor management in hospitality. So that, I want to study hospitality management from world renowned university. As soon as I complete my degree, I will join and gain experience from renowned industry in Australia then, I will come back to my homeland and serve for the well reputed industry in my field and ultimately lead the international level hotel and organization.
