Hospitality SOP Australia
Introduction & Family Background:
I am delighted to introduce myself as Harinder Singh S/o Ranjit Singh and Rajinder Kaur. I hail from Ludhiana, Punjab, India. I am blessed with a nuclear family of four members which includes my parents, me and my younger brother. My father is an Agriculturist, my mother is a homemaker and my younger brother is a student in India.
I have passed matriculation from PSEB in 2015 with 67% and Senior Secondary from the same board in the Humanities stream in 2017 with 68% respectively. After completion of my school graduation I decided to pursue my further studies from abroad so I searched many options and after being decided with everything such as course, educational destination & course provider I appeared for the IELTS exam on 21/09/2017 and got overall 5.5 bands. My Individual scores are- L-5.5, R-6.0, W-5.5, S-5.0. I am applying to study the Diploma of Hospitality Management leading to Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management in Gamma Education & Training Pty Ltd, Queensland, Australia.
Reasons to choose Australia over India:
Keeping my goal and target in my mind, Gamma Education & Training Pty Ltd, Queensland seems to be an excellent and brilliant place for carrying my career ahead to its peak as doing a qualification at an international level will carry more weight-age.
There is no denying that there are many institutions available in my country such as the RIG Institute of Tourism and Hospitality Management in Gurgaon, Guru Nanak Dev University in Amritsar, and Subhash Bose Institute of Hotel Management which is located in Kolkata and so on. Firstly one has to clear the entrance exams which are quite a tough job due to the limited number of seats in such institutions.
Moreover, in India reservation system is followed for admissions so that’s why my chances of getting admission were quite low. Secondly, the course curriculum is quite different from the curriculum of Australian colleges and universities. Moreover, In Australia, the approach of teaching is practical along with the use of the latest techniques and updated syllabus which makes the student industry-ready graduate and this increases the chances of a fresh graduate to be a part of one of the leading organizations of the world. Even the modes of delivering education are well furnished as the latest technologies are being used to impart education to the students such as smart-classes equipped with projectors or other audio-visual aids and so on.
Moreover while studying in my home country I cannot get the benefits that can be gained while studying abroad such as international exposure which would add extra weight to my resume to get good jobs in future. Secondly, by studying in an English speaking country I can improve my communication skills. Last but not the least, the value and recognition of an international degree due to the latest business techniques and understanding of the advanced economy are always higher than a local degree especially in one of the most emerging markets like India today. Hence internationally qualified candidates are always preferred comparatively. Due to all these merits of overseas education, I have decided to have an international degree rather a domestic one.
As the hospitality industry (accommodation and food service) is the seventh-largest employer in Australia. Australia is the only country that has implemented some educational acts which reserve the rights of international students. The act is known as “ESOS- Education Services for International Students” which gives the international students the rights to information about course offered, subjects, actual fee structure, and method of delivery of the course by the institution. It also gives the right to students to have a written agreement with the institutions which states all the terms and conditions to be followed by both the student and the course provider.
The best thing about this act is its tuition fee protection policy which ensures the investment of an international student is safe. It will not be wasted if in case the institution is unable to provide the course to the student and it has to arrange a replacement for the student or has to refund the tuition fee. I could not find such policies in other countries.
Why not any other Country:
Choosing a country was a difficult task but Australia made the cut at the end because of it being among the world’s best tourist destinations. Its amazing weather, great people, and Nikhil Mittal of Nik Baker’s having completed his studies from Australia. It may be surprising to you but Mr. Nikhil Mittal was of great inspiration to me in choosing Australia as my education destination. I also weighed on other countries but the USA was very expensive, Canada is too cold and not promising with regards to hospitality management and Europe being totally different language and culture-wise.
Lastly, I have searched about Cesar Ritz College which is located in Switzerland as Switzerland owns the reputation of providing the high quality of education related to tourism and hospitality industries. No doubt the band requirement of this college is not high but the fee of this college is 24 lakh Indian Rupees per year, so it is also very high as compared to Australian colleges and universities.
Moreover, Australia is among the 3 most popular destinations for overseas students after UK and USA with 7 out of top 100 universities in the world so it shows the quality of education provided by the country and Australian degree is also globally recognized so it is also very helpful for me to get jobs in any country. So due to all these reasons, I want to study in Australia.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE -MBA
I am Manjinder Kaur, D/o Balwinder Singh and Gurmeet Kaur, R/o Ward No.6 VPO Mallan Wala Tehsil Zira, Ferozepur, Punjab, India, and my passport No. is N2434366. There are 7 members in my family, my father is an agriculturist and my mother is a housewife. I am blessed with 4 siblings. My both elder sisters Sukhjit Kaur and Amandeep Kaur are married and well settled. My elder brother Gurmail Singh is helping my father in his agriculture business and my eldest sister Mandeep Kaur is studying. I am blessed with a family who has always taught me the importance of good values and principles. It is only because of their undying belief in me and their encouragement, I am submitting my plans to study my Master’s degree from abroad.
ACADEMIC BACKGROUND & IELTS:
I have completed my Secondary education in the year 2012 from Punjab School Education Board and completed my Senior Secondary education in the year 2014 from the same board with 86% marks in Humanities Stream. After my senior Secondary, I have done my Bachelor of Arts in the year 2017 from Panjab University in the first division.
After my graduation, I express my feelings about my interest in studying abroad particularly in Australia to my parents and with their encouragement, support and blessings I decided to pursue my Master of Business Administration from Australia. For pursuing my Master’s degree from Australia, I was preparing for the IELTS exam and appeared for the IELTS exam on 24.02.2018 and got an overall 6.0 Band (Listening 6.0, Speaking 6.0, Reading 5.5, Writing 6.0).
Why not India
My aim is to be successful in the life and I find it is very easy to do so but when the time passes and start understanding the education system deeply I came to know that in India people who have economical power or quota powers can get admission in the reputed Colleges or Universities and I find it is impossible for the student like me who belong to very simple family. So I have to look for the other option for my further studies and then my family suggested me to go abroad for the same because overseas universities give very good practical knowledge then Indian Colleges. In India students from reputed colleges are settled in life other are just working in simple call centers and I don’t want to become one of them. Moreover, in India, more emphasis is given to get good marks instead of getting knowledge and skills, so I finally decide to study abroad for my further education.
Why Australia, not other Country:
I started my research on the internet and found that Australia would be the best educational destination for me comparatively other countries as Australia is a multi-cultured country that is extensively engaged to offer education to international students. Australia is accepting new modern techniques and fundamentals in the field of education like that of the US/UK. No other requirement to go for special language courses to study in Australia unlike other countries US and UK. During my research, I have come to know that Australia has the third-highest number of international students in the world.
Moreover, studying in Australia highly advanced study programs, opportunity to earn working experience while and after studies and on top of it, international exposure earned from Australia will help me build a strong platform in order to achieve success in my career. Also, Australia is the only country that has implemented some educational acts which reserve the rights of international students. The act is known as “ESOS- Education Services for International Students” which gives the international students the rights to information about course offered, subjects, actual fee structure, and method of delivery of the course by the institution. It also gives the right to students to have a written agreement with the institutions which states all the terms and conditions to be followed by both the student and the course provider.
The best thing about this act is its tuition fee protection policy which ensures the investment of an international student is safe. It will not be wasted if in case the institution is unable to provide the course to the student and it has to arrange a replacement for the student or has to refund the tuition fee. I could not find such policies in other countries. Besides this, Australia has an education system that is valid and recognized all over the world.
Why ATMC (Australian Technical and Management College):
ATMC has a good reputation for providing good teaching facilities with small size classes which helps a student to get personal attention. ATMC is also providing mentors to international students who are already studying there. They help new students to know about the accommodation, assignments and attendance criteria thus make International students comfortable while teaching.
Why Federation University:
Spending a lot of hard-earned money of my family and also leaving one’s own country, I knew I had to get the best possible return on my education. Accordingly, I started searching for universities to get admitted to in accordance with my profile and Federation University turned out to be the best choice among all. I compared the course structure, Fees, Graduate employment satisfaction rate of different universities like Curtin University, Deakin University, Victoria University, and much more, I found Federation University the most affordable choice for me with all necessary facilities available. Fees of other universities are comparatively high than ATMC-Federation. Apart from being better ranked, the University boasts of a research-driven approach producing results and development of a prospective student like no other.
Moreover, I got a 20% scholarship from Federation University which is an additional benefit to me, thus help me to save my money. Federation University assists students in adapting and learning with various support services. Federation University produces graduates who are career-ready, world ready and digitally literate, and who experience an academic environment distinctive for its personal approach. More importantly, what really matters is one’s return on investment and the university has had a strong rapport among employers around the world. Not to mention, it’s up to date teaching methodology and the preparation of the student for his whole lifetime. To sum it up, being able to study from the best, among a diverse set of students with a promise of a great future ahead is a very fascinating feeling altogether.
I searched on the internet for my living arrangements in Melbourne. I have visited a few websites like https://www.indianconnection.com.au/services/accommodation etc where I got many accommodation options. I can stay in a rental apartment or shared apartment in the budget of AUD 250- 350 per week.
Why Master of Business Administration:
Initially, I will study EAP for 5 weeks due to my low scores in the Reading module and after the successful completion of my EAP program, I will study an MBA from Federation University.
I choose the Master of Business Administration as I want to pursue my career in the Business and Marketing field. This program develops skills in business management. This course provides me the knowledge and skills to be a professional, with particular skills in a chosen area. MBA involves rigorous training in all aspects of the business which require innovative strategy making.

It will also prepare me for management-level positions in the industry. It will improve my leadership skills by giving me the opportunity to lead teams in group assignments. Regularly working as a part of a team will also help me to better coordinate my efforts with my team members.

My future goal is to work with TOP MNCs in India like Reliance, Samsung, Nestle, HDFC bank, ICICI Bank, Infosys, etc. and can work as HR Manager, Business Development Manager, Business Analyst, Team Leader, and Relationship Manager, etc.
After the completion of this course initially, I am expecting a package of INR 8-9 lakhs per annum but with growth in life, I will expect more. Therefore, I am confident that the offered program is going to benefit me in more than one way.
I also read online testimonials of Indian students already studying there and read visa rules, living standard on the official immigration site Australia www.studyinaustralia.gov.in, www.homeaffairs.gov.au I have researched about my Education Visa Subclass also that I am applying for Student Visa under 500 SSVF and I am aware of the rule I have to follow like I have to Maintain my OSHC for the entire duration my course, I shall not work more than 40 hours fortnightly, I have to maintain my attendance and follow the protocols of the Institute and I will have to leave the country before the expiry of my visa.
