I would like to introduce myself as XXX, daughter of Mr.XXX and Mrs. XXXa permanent resident ofXXX, Nepal. I present myself as a Nepalese citizen holding the passport number XXX. Since childhood, I have loved to cook food for myself and my loved ones. I want to study Cookery and Hospitality Management in Australia atXXX College by realising my interest. I also wish to become the chef of my restaurant. I have strong support from my family; therefore, I intend to continue my study in Australia.
I (XXX) Completed my School Leaving Certificate from XXX School , in XXX, securing XXX. I also have a High School Certificate (10+2), an Australian qualification equivalent to High School, from XXX School, securing a XXX GPA out of 4. My high school certificate is based on Hotel Management as per Nepal’s Higher Secondary Education Board and completed in year XXX.
For pursuing a study career in Australia, as an international student, an English Proficiency test is necessary. I had given the PTE on XX/XX/XXXX at my homeland country (Nepal) and scored overall XXXmarks (Listening XXX, Reading XXX, Speaking XXX, and Writing XXX). I have secured the marks according to the college requirement.
My passion and career goals are connected with hospitality management, especially in cookery. Being a girl child in my family, my mother always encourages me to help her cook delicious food for my family in the kitchen. Gradually, with the time, I realized that I was passionate about cooking, hospitality management, and serving the people around me. As a result, I decided to pursue Certificate III in commercial cookery, Certificate IV in commercial cookery, and a Diploma in hospitality management with all the dedication and passion for my further degree.
My high school certificate is based in Hotel Management. The primary motive for studying this subject is to apply for a job and placement in that field where I have a keen interest and am fully passionate. During my studies in higher secondary, I was involved in internships in hotel and hospitality settings as part of the placements. Aside from that, my previous study is also related to cooking. I had researched the biography ofXXX, who is also my idol, and his story has inspired me a lot.
The degree I will receive from XXX College will be applicable in every corner of the world because this renowned institution from Australia provides courses that include all the practical based and quality education. Since Nepal is a country that is based on the tourism and hospitality industry, gradually, hotels, restaurants, and the hospitality industry are growing in Nepal after covid.
I believe that if I study the course based on my passion and interest, I will never feel bored in my study and my professional career. The knowledge and skills of commercial cookery and hospitality management accommodate a wide range of professionals in various work settings. After completing my course, I can start a career in this sector as an accommodation manager, catering manager, chef, conference center manager, event manager, fast food restaurant manager, hotel manager, public house manager, and restaurant manager. After gaining certain years of experience in this sector, I wish to run my own hospitality business and develop my career in this field. Thus, I believe that by choosing Certificate III in commercial cookery, Certificate IV in commercial cookery, and Diploma of hospitality management, I have made the best decision ever in my life to shape my career.
I am applying to study for Certificate III in Commercial Cookery, Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery, and Diploma of Hospitality Management for my further education at Canberra Business and Technology College (CBTC). This course trains students to cope with modern food items and hygiene concerns. The program is designed for students who want to learn the skills and knowledge necessary to work as chefs in hotels and restaurants. Furthermore, it contains practical and physical training on assessing customer needs, planning, and monitoring food, which is vital in any firm. It was created in compliance with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and professional association criteria.
After finishing this course, it will prepare me to work in sectors such as Cook, assistant cook, cook’s helper, banquet or function manager, front office manager, kitchen manager, and motel manager by familiarizing me with food variations, food hygiene, and cook and monitor work operations of various hotels.
The Diploma along with certificate will take a total of three and a half years to complete the course and will provide a solid foundation in cooking and hospitality. The Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency has authorized the program. I have to complete the following subjects to meet the academic criteria of the diploma and certificate:
I will be given 200 hours of practical work placement. XXX College offers a severe learning environment led by highly qualified instructors and also offers a contemporary educational environment that emphasizes leadership development via the development of responsibility, respect, trustworthiness, fairness, commitment, and compassion.
Through all of my research for studying abroad, I have found Australia to be the right place to pursue my future studying career. I went to several educational fairs, met with a number of experts, and solicited advice from my elders. I thought of four countries after my continual efforts. They were Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Without a doubt, each of these countries has established its own standard for offering high-quality education. The University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, and McGill University are just a few Canadian universities that have impressed me, but I had backed off due to the cold weather condition.
Furthermore, they have a Four-year degree, which equates to a year’s worth of time and money compared to Australian education. The United Kingdom may have been my final destination, but once again, the exorbitant living costs were prohibitive.
When considering the benefits and drawbacks of studying in these countries, I chose Australia. Australia provided me with everything I was hoping for. It is a safe and secure country that offers an excellent education at a reasonable cost. My favorable atmosphere and weather, as well as other recreational activities outside of studies and much more to discover, were all essential factors in putting Australia at the top of my list. There is no denying the fact that the Australian Education System is recognized as one of the most outstanding in the world, and it has consistently maintained a high quality in which the government strictly regulates the educational system.
Each year, the Australian government provides more than A$200 million in international scholarships. An overseas student who is fluent in English and meets the requirements can enroll in universities right away. Australian universities provide a wide range of courses and degrees, making it easy for overseas students to discover the right university for them. Under the ESOS Act 2000, overseas students can also benefit from extensive financial security, student rights, tuition cost protection, and other services. OSHC (Overseas Student Health Cover) is required and must be maintained for the duration of one’s stay in Australia.
I was particularly impressed to learn that Australia is home to eight of the top 100 universities globally, with over 22,000 degrees offered across 1100 institutions. It also boasts five of the world’s top 30 student cities, based on student mix, affordability, and quality of life. These are the factors that I consider when choosing Australia to pursue my study destination.
Studying abroad to obtain an internationally recognised degree and global exposure is becoming increasingly popular among Nepalese youngsters. However, studying abroad is not as easy as it appears; there may be numerous risks, impediments, and stumbling blocks. As a result, selecting a nation that offers an excellent education, a safe learning and living environment, and cheap living costs and tuition fees is crucial and challenging for any student wishing to study abroad.
So, I did some research on countries that are well-known as international student destinations, such as the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and other European and Asian countries. There are several reasons why I prefer Australia to other countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and others. Among these countries, the general facilities available in Australia and the Australian educational system piqued my interest. The causes behind this are listed below.
Students must take SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) or ACT (American University Testing) tests, which take 3 to 4 months to prepare for. Furthermore, the climate of Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and other European countries is extremely cold, with temperatures as low as -19.7 degrees Celsius, and Japan experiences massive floods and earthquakes every year, yet Australia’s climate is similar to that of Nepal.
No doubt, European countries are also best for studying. As an international student, I have spoken both my native and English languages from childhood, but the language should be known to studying and living in European countries. This is quite difficult for me.
Furthermore, there are security concerns in nations such as the United States, where foreign students are not welcome, and we frequently hear reports of gunshots and looting in the United States, which can put international students at risk. Australia is regarded as the safest place for international students, and it ranks in the world’s top ten happiest countries. However, there is a lack of protection for foreign students in the United States, as foreign students are not welcome, and issues like as gunshots and loot have been reported frequently.
So, after considering all of these factors, including living expenses, tuition fees, weather conditions, and provisions for the protection of international students’ rights and responsibilities, I chose to study in Australia over countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other well-known destinations.
Practical application of theoretical knowledge is nearly impossible for Nepalese students in today’s corporate world. The importance of practical education is downplayed, while the importance of theory is emphasised. Nepal’s educational system is not well-known around the world. There are just five major universities in Nepal and a limited number of courses to choose from. Practical knowledge, in my opinion, is given far less priority than theoretical knowledge, and Nepal’s university is primarily concerned with theoretical knowledge. There are limited hospitality institutions in Nepal with a restricted number of course choices and insufficient practical sessions and workshops to provide the essential set of skills and knowledge
The available Hotel Management College in Nepal are:
Thus, the colleges have the best theoretical Knowledge but the Nepalese students have to go to Dubai, Maldives, Singapore, and Thailand for the one-year internship period because of Nepal’s lack of practical sessions.
Despite my significant interest and accomplishments, political insecurity and daily educational strikes in Nepal doubt my ability to continue my studies and attain my career aspirations. Numerous political upheavals and internal conflicts constantly hampered the quality of education in the country. With these disadvantages in mind, I choose to continue my studies in Australia rather than in my own country Nepal because Australia’s education system is known for being flexible, highly productive, goal-driven, and career-oriented.
I had researched a lot on the internet about institutions of Australia. I looked at some Australian colleges, including the XXX College and XXX College (www.XX.XXX), XXX College(www.sccm.edu.au), and Stotts College (www.XXX.XXX); however, I discovered that these institutions charge higher fees than XXX College.
There are various reasons for choosing Canberra Business and Technology for my course Certificate III in Commercial Cookery, Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery, Diploma of Hospitality Management because of the well-structured tuition fees and is a right match for me from different aspects. The program offered includes all the high-level cookery and hospitality courses such as preparing the dishes using other methods, designing and producing business documents, etc., which would help learn. In addition, the university offers excellent class quality with skilled and highly experienced instructors.
In addition, I will have access to a variety of industry-based learning opportunities, internship chances, and professional development courses, guaranteeing that I will learn more than just from books. The existence of competent student mentors and an accessible academic faculty and staff are all supportive considerations in XXX College and also promises to give each international student individual attention.
XXX College is the perfect fit for overseas students like me because of its small class sizes, highly qualified professors, technologically friendly environment, and flexible course format. XXX College also offers a variety of mentorship programs.
As a result, after considering the many factors described above, such as course structure, reputation, educational quality, multiple intakes, tuition rate, and teaching manner, I am personally quite impressed with XXX College. I am quite excited to begin my Certificate III in Commercial Cookery, Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery, Diploma of Hospitality Management at XXX College.
After completing Certificate III in commercial cookery, Certificate IV in commercial cookery, and Diploma of hospitality management in Australia, I have planned to return to my motherland. The main intention for abroad study is to achieve a higher education degree that is recognised worldwide and explore and gain new experience, knowledge, and skills that I would not be able to obtain in my home country. As I have stated previously, Nepal’s economy depends on the tourism and hospitality business. Hotels and restaurants will never end in a country like Nepal, where there will be a flow of tourists from different countries worldwide. But being a developing country, there are still numbers of people who hesitate to work in this field, and the main point is that there are not enough skilled and experienced workers in Nepal. Therefore, I will have an excellent opportunity to get my job quickly as I will have a degree that is acceptable worldwide, and I can change people’s perceptions.
Although, many numbers of restaurants and hospitality businesses are growing after covid-19. My dream is to become the chef of my restaurant. So, I will start my career at the entry level and work as a cook in a restaurant. I will work for more than three years and gather all the required knowledge about the food and how to make it testy, customer’s needs, and how to provide them with the exemplary services and the essential skills and experience that a best Chef must-have. I will utilize all the skills, knowledge, and ideas I have learned from Australian education because I want to make a good investment in my homeland. I would open my restaurant, including all the country dishes such as Chinese, Korean, and Nepalese food. This means both satisfaction and prosperity will go hand in hand. Working in these sectors for years will help me gain experience and earn a handsome salary compared to local degree holders, which will help me recover my study investment.
My main motive for enrolling in an Australian institute is to gain the most prestigious academic degree in Hospitality and Cookery. While attending XXX College, I intend to devote a significant amount of time and money to my studies.
This degree is not available or offered by the educational institutions in Nepal. As a result, I don’t want to waste my talents, ideas, and expertise in a foreign country. Also, I want to increase the wide range of the hospitality industry as long as possible into more skillful professionals. Nepal is a famous tourist destination. I can use this hospitality professional to welcome them nicely.
I want to invest all of my knowledge, talents, and ideas in my home country because, being a citizen, I will also be responsible for the development of my country.
Nepal is a developing country with various activities in hotels and the hospitality industry distributed around the country, providing numerous chances. I hope to return to my home land and invest all the skills, knowledge, ideas, and experience I have gained through my international study in my country by establishing my own restaurant business.
My parents live in my homeland Nepal, and I have day-to-day conversations with them. I don’t want to live apart from them. After I finish studying, I will head back to my country to take care of and be with my parents. We have family property, houses, and relatives, which motivate me to return to my nation after completing my study as soon as possible.
I am mentally prepared to comply with all of the visa subclass 500 conditions, which I have summarised below:
I pledge, in writing, to abide by all university and government rules and regulations and live as a law-abiding student in Australia. I’m highly committed to this program and want to make the most of it by attending CBTC.
Last but not least, as a sincere and hardworking student, I guarantee that I will complete my intended course in the time allotted under all visa conditions and that after completion, I will return to my homeland Nepal and work in the field of hospitality and cookery using the skills and knowledge I have gained. I would request to consider my application and let me embark on my dream academic career.
