These four years of professional experience helped me to get potential exposure, improvised knowledge, enhanced my technical skills and upgrade my overall abilities. Also, this job and responsibilities are highly correlated to the program I am applying for because of the nature of the course itself and my employer's company target sector.

Reason to Choose Australia

Amidst the deep interest in the course of Health Science, initially, I looked two (2) universities/colleges in [home country] to continue my study, university of ** and ** University which offer Bachelor in Public Health (BPH) with major community-based health services but my interest was always to study specifically health science along with nutrition studies and joining in such universities in [home country] with other courses which are none of my interest and not of my choice. Similarly, admitting the fact regarding teaching methodologies, physical infrastructure to support experiential learning activities and most importantly outcomes of the alumni, I decided not to continue my bachelor’s degree in [home country] although many opportunities still ringing the bell. Firstly, I have gone through some universities portal around Europe, later I ended up with the fact that studying in Australia is far better than in Europe as far as corresponding climate, community and overall education development in Australia is concerned. Also, I have researched universities and colleges in the UK, USA, Canada and compared them with Australian universities and colleges but I found [your  Applied university] is best for me. I found Australia is safe with a low crime rate compared to the USA. Affordable compare to Canada and UK as well. Moreover, the cities of Australia are cosmopolitan so the possibilities of getting innovative ideas and knowledge from people all around the globe apart from university study are relatively high.

Reason to Choose Canberra

Although, I have gone through the portals of ** University, and ** College, Australia looking for courses of my interest. ** University offers Bachelor of Applied Social Science, while ** College offers Bachelor of Community Services, having no major subjects in nutrition studies I decided not to apply to these universities. Apart from that, Canberra is my first and foremost destination to live and study. 

Now, coming to Canberra for studying and living, I have a few assumptions. Firstly, Canberra is one of the best cities in the world and Australian Capital Territory with the best touristic and opportunity hub, it will be the advantages to learn about various diversified cultures, a privilege to know deep about art and culture. Canberra has the largest student population and adaptation in such a place would be relatively easy for students like me. Thirdly, the security and social services provided by the authorities are fascinating which appeals to me to live in Canberra as compared to other cities in Australia itself. Lastly, the serene beaches and recreation area even aroused me to live in Canberra to enjoy during my free time in university. 

Reason to Choose [your Applied university]

As I have searched many universities with keywords of Health Science focusing on Nutrition, the [your Applied university] was found to be the best among other institutions comparing few parameters. The research outcomes, publications, faculty members and alumni performance in the various sectors of the [your Applied university] are student appealing. Furthermore, as far as finances and fees are concerned, the [your Applied university] has made really easy and cost-effective schemes for all students which are also prime reasons to opt for this university. As this university has collaborated with other companies, research institutions and partner organizations, I will have a great opportunity to join seminars, events and presentations to enhance my analytical skills and performance. I have also researched more universities like ** of university, University of ** and *** of university but [your Applied university] fee is more compared to then and I have found this university provides more practice education compared to other universities mentioned above. 

Living Arrangement in Australia 

Regarding accommodation in Australia, I am thinking of residing in a student-friendly condominium outside the campus during my undergraduate study tenure. While I will be happily adjusted with my family friend’s residence as a paying guest at <address>, which is just **km from [your Applied university] and it just takes ** mins of road transportation, until I permanently shift into my own residence. We have verbally agreed that I will pay *** AUD per week which includes food and accommodation.

Knowledge about Course 

Being highly ambitious in the field of health service, developing social and health policies, applied counselling, nutrition science and its dynamics, food behaviour attitudes, ethics and professional practice, research methodology, Government Policy, nutrition assessment practices and guidelines are major components that are prime for practitioners like me. And most notably, the [your Applied university] is currently providing these particular courses in its curriculum, which is why I am more interested in the Department of Health specified in Health Science to fulfil my career goal.

Future Plans

Upon my return to [home country] right after completion of my bachelor's in Health Science, I would like to dedicate my skills and abilities in the field of community health service. As a health worker, I am planning to spend my upcoming ** years in both the rural and urban areas of [home country]. Having already some experience regarding patients counselling service in pulmonology and critical care department of the concerned hospital, service-oriented public health camp to provide counselling, social health awareness software training, health instrument related hardware assistantship to different types of patients and as a health worker or health resource person, I have identified that there are some lacks regarding public health awareness and nutrition practices among the community people or even people visiting hospital itself, which is the main reason behind not getting quality health services in a different area in [home country].

In the context of [home country], there are a few companies and organizations which are working in the field of Health and Nutrition, working actively in both rural and urban areas in [home country]. The potential role for me in such companies/organizations after my graduation would be Nutrition or Research officer focusing on Health. In current scenarios, they are paying tentative *** to *** depending upon the ability and skills. The potential and noted companies such as, ***, ***, ****, *** and many more.

However my first priority would be working with the government as I believe I can crack through government competitive exam after my graduation from [your  Applied university], I am planning to join the Government of [home country], department of public health services to apply my developed knowledge and abilities towards public and social health adjoining nutrition to the people of [home country]. For the first five years, I will be working on community-based awareness and counselling services in the different rural parts of [home country] as a public and social health resource person. After five years I am seeing myself as a policymaker in the Government of [home country], during my tenure I will emphasize more on potential tool development to make an effective community based different health training program, effective plans on nutrition science. Also, the capacity development of subordinates will be on my priority list. Hence, this Health Science at [your  Applied university] would help me to reach my career dreams and hopefully, I would be able to start my journey upon the acceptance of the application.

Yours Sincerely,

<your name>
