The Statement of Purpose (SOP) is the single most important part of your school and student visa application. As the name signifies, the statement of purpose is your personal statement about who you are, what has influenced your career path so far, your professional interests and where you plan to go from here.
You should be able to provide information on the following matters for the admission officer and visa officer to have an overview of your profile.
- Your reason for choosing to undertake the course of study specified in your application.
- The relevance of your studies to your academic and/or employment background.
- The relevance of the course to your future career/ educational plans.
- Your reason for choosing your education provider and your reasons for choosing to study in Australia rather than in your home country.
If you plan correctly, you can give yourself enough time to submit a well-written, thoughtful, polished SOP that will boost your chances for admission and successful visa application.
Writing a reasonably good statement of purpose is not an impossible task. It requires care, attention, and patience.
Set aside time for you to be able to write several drafts, show them to people and polish your SOP till you get a version that you are happy with.
This is your chance to make yourself stand out from among a multitude of similarly qualified candidates.
To show them that you have the spark, the thirst for knowledge that could add value to your career plan and objectives.
