My Brief Introduction:

I am Anil Nepal, a permanent inhabitant of Tansen- 02, Palpa, Nepal. My Date of Birth is 17/11/1991 and Passport Number is 05872964. I want to pursue my dream of gaining an international degree from Australia as I found that this country offers the best course in the field of Engineering in which I am solely interested and want to pursue my future. I completed my Bachelor’s of Technology in the field of Environmental Engineering from one of the reputed university of Nepal that is Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel, Nepal. Getting inspiration in the field of environmental engineering since my childhood and my core interest to become a successful and professional engineer; I am interested to complete my higher degree qualification from abroad.

Why am I applying to study in Australia?

I am applying to study in Australia because Australia is a dynamic and vibrant country with a great deal to offer students looking for international education. Choosing to come to Australia to study will provide me with a whole new view of the world and wonderful opportunities and experiences, with exciting and progressive world-class education programs. Since international students contribute strongly to the economy of Australia, the government takes special interest in regulating the education sector, and the presence of many universities in Australia in the top 100 of the world rankings speaks highly of the government’s efforts to get student to study in Australia. That is more than enough for me to select Australia as a destination for study because even if a particular university is not ranked among the world’s best, there is a guarantee that it would strive to do so and never compromise on the quality of education. That being said, there is much more that prompted me to choose study in Australia, even though the cost of education is relatively high. Once I have spent my time and money in acquiring education in any country, it seems only justified for me to wish to work in that environment for some time before heading back to my country or going elsewhere to chase my dreams. The recent changes in government policy make it easier for international students to work in Australia once they complete their education (conditions apply) and hence they can add value to their résumés not only through international education but also through international work experience.

Reasons for choosing UOW over other options:

I did research on different colleges and Australia through net surfing to find best education provider in the field of environmental engineering and I found University of Wollongong the perfect university for my study because it is consistently ranked among the top Australian universities for the quality of its teaching, research, graduate employment rates and student experience and UOW has been placed in the top 2% of universities in the world by its performance in The Times Higher Education and QS World University Rankings 2014/2015 and the Academic Ranking of World Universities 2014. The University of Wollongong is a leading Australian university with an international reputation for academic excellence. UOW provides an inspiring study environment – on the main Wollongong campus, or at its downtown Sydney Business School. The University offers degree programs across all levels of study (undergraduate and postgraduate coursework and research), as well as English language and academic bridging programs through UOW College with affordable fee structure.

How is this course related to my previous course of study?

According to my previous study, my educational background is Technology and Engineering. In Nepal I passed my Bachelor’s of Technology in the field of Environmental Engineering from one of the reputed university of Nepal that is Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel, Nepal. In this regards, I have relevancy between my previous educations. To gain internationally recognized degree, I want to continue my study in the same field in Australia at UOW.

How will this course benefits my future career and provide opportunities to increase my potential future earning capacity? How will I be recovering the expenses after studying this course from UOW?

After the completion of master’s in environmental engineering it will benefits us to contribute to sustainable development in their respective employment sectors such as industry and governmental agencies, Take an active role in their continuous professional development to enable Nepal to build the knowledge-based economy emphasized, promote ethical and professional standards in their careers with respect to the duty of care towards the environmentand sustainable development and contribute to environmental, societal, economic and technological needs to address the challenges of the knowledge-based economy which will help my home country develop in the field of environment.

Environmental Engineering offers the graduates opportunities to work in several domains of environmental protection. The major areas include air pollution control and abatement, industrial hygiene, hazardous waste management, toxic materials control, water supply, wastewater management, storm water management, solid waste disposal, public health, soil remediation and land management within each of these major categories are many sub-specialties. The degree will enhance prospects for potential employment in Governmental bodies (Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Works), national and international industries located in and outside Qatar (eg: hydrocarbon (processing, refining and petrochemicals) as well as service and utility providers among others. Also, potential employment opportunities exist in consulting companies as well as in research institutions.

As per the Australian Government we international students are given two years of work permit after completing our graduation program. So during those two years I am going to find a good job opportunities related to my course of study. After completing this course I will be able to earn AUD 1500 to 3000 per month which will help me to recover my expenses. Similarly after I return back to my home country I will be able to get opportunities in INGOs/ NGOs where my monthly salary will be about USD 1000 to USD 2000. For your information I would like to inform ypu that I am planning to stay in Sydney for my study.

Financial capacity for me to support my studies:

I am an unmarried boy living with my parents, so I don’t have any dependents who will be joining me in Australia. My parents are financially capable to support me in Australia during my entire study period. So as not to have financial burden to complete my desired course from Australia, I will take education loan from one of the authorized banks of Nepal by DIBP, New Delhi. No, I don’t have any relatives in Australia.
