WHY NOT FURTHER STUDY IN NEPAL?
I had always dreamt to get an international degree for my higher studies as this would make my education profile much stronger. After completing my entire primary as well as secondary level study and I choose to go to India for my undergraduate study. And now for my master program, I am looking forward to studying in an International University to explore realistic teaching methods. There are few colleges in Nepal with limited resources and fewer options that provide a Master of Public Health. Moreover, the teaching system here is more traditional and theoretical based rather than innovative and practical.
Also, there is no flexibility in choosing subjects for specialization. Although the tuition fees in Nepal are inexpensive in comparison to Australia, the degree I pursue here may not be internationally recognized. The reasons above have significantly contributed to my decision to seek to complete my masters’ degree elsewhere than in Nepal.
WHY IN AUSTRALIA?
With clear cut intention to leave my home country in the pursuit of higher education and many study destinations were upon my mind. Then my personal research got initiated. The obvious choices were the USA, UK, Australia, Canada and European Countries like Germany and Norway. Then I started comparing and contrasting among these countries and I finally chose Australia for its globally recognized education in a safe environment and lower living cost. Australia is a diverse country that has always warmly welcomed international students and I have found that Australia is the right place to continue my Master Degree. Almost all universities in Australia is government recognized which makes the student safe about their future and education. The Australian Government regulates the education system in order to maintain a high standard of education associated with the country. Students have great choices of universities, as there are almost 43 universities, which provides qualitative, practical, and future-oriented education. The reason for not choosing United Kingdom is that, the master education is generally of one year which is not globally competitive while in the USA to get into a good university a student needs to take competitive exams like GRE (Graduate Record Examination), GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) etc. which is often time consuming process from preparation to securing the good scores. Also while contrasting among other European countries for instance in Germany, Norway etc. there are certain language requirements and as Australia is English speaking nation and doesn’t have to take language classes for it as I have been studying in English medium school early from childhood. According to the contemporary scenario of the USA and the UK, it is not safe to stay. Also, the fee structure of Australia is affordable in comparison to the USA, UK and Euro rates. One of the other, I have thought of India too but the owing similarity in Culture, Tradition and even education paradigm, I let the idea. Moreover, the most trustworthy part is that Australia has the provision of Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) which is a register of Australian education institutions that recruit, enroll and teach overseas students. The education system of Australia emphasis on practical study. The education system is renowned and the teaching technique is unique. This standard education system escorts individuals to a better future and more job opportunities in every part of the world. Australia in the past few years has become one of the most popular destinations for students from 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 24 of Australian universities were ranked among the top 400 universities of the world according to the Times Higher Education World Ranking 2018. Graduates from Australian Universities are highly sought after education system, which is carefully regulated by the Australian Government in order to maintain high standards of education through the Department of Education Services for International Students (ESOS), Tuition Protection Act (TPS) to ensure and maintain high standards to facilitate quality education to the international students. Australia also provides an opportunity for international students to apply for a Post Study Work (PSW) visa after the completion of a university degree which will help students gain practical work experiences after they graduate and enhance their overall international study experience.
After my research in different cities in Australia, I chose NSW Sydney as a destination for my further study. New South Wales is the largest state in Australia. Sydney is the oldest, biggest and most beautiful among all Australian cities, lies amid a seductive intermingling of land and sea. One of the world’s great icons, the Sydney Opera House is a Heritage Site. Sydney Harbor Bridge, The Rock, and the Circular Quay are also the common attractions, Sydney Tower which is the city’s tallest building and one of its greatest landmarks as well. Beaches like Bondi, Milk, Freshwater, Cronulla, Lady Bay, Manly beach and many more are also the tourist attraction. A lifestyle that is hard to match as Sydney offers one of the highest standards of living in the world and yet is more affordable. International students receive a 40% discount on all public transport and buses within Sydney city center. It has the humid subtropical, shifting from mild and cold in winter to warm and hot in the summer, with no extreme seasonal difference as the weather is moderated by proximity to the ocean.
Why Torrens University?
From extensive research, I came to conclude that receiving an International Degree in Master of Public Health (Advanced) from Torrens University, Sydney, Australia will surely help me in achieving my goals. Torrens University, Australia is a part of Laureate International University, a leading international network of quality institutions of higher education comprised of 70 universities across 25 countries.

Going through the university website it was evident that Torrens focuses on providing students a learning environment with face to face interactions with industry experienced professionals and lecturers with initiatives like touch point weekend sessions, small and interactive classroom environments.
Besides Torrens University, I also did several research for other colleges. I did a comparison of tuition fees, course structures, and location and entry requirements by different education providers of Australia. Most of the universities like Macquarie University, University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and University of Southern Queensland (USQ),.Torrens University is very much affordable with respect to the above-mentioned universities.
As per my marital status, I am married to Husband Name –a residence of Address on Date according to our customs. He will accompany me to Australia if I get an opportunity to study over there. He has been my source of inspiration and has always motivated me to achieve my dreams. So his presence will help me to perform my best in my study and will support me morally.

This way I hope to develop the economy of my country. I will be delightful to help in every sector to provide better health services in developing countries like Nepal.
