If you’re having trouble writing your Statement of Purpose, you’re not alone. A Statement of Purpose (SOP) or Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) statement are required written documents that need to be submitted with your Australian Student Visa application. With the status of your Australian Student Visa relying heavily on a properly written Statement of Purpose, many students choose to get a professionally written GTE Statement from our experts with a 100% money back guarantee. However if you choose to write your statement on your own, we will share with you the most common SOP mistakes students make while writing their Statement of Purpose.
“I have also considered your immigration history and your personal circumstances.”
Immigration history is something many potential students fail to go into detail on while writing their Statement of Purpose. Unfortunately, a common SOP mistake is not providing enough background about your previous immigration history. Have you left your home country and received a visa for work, school or travel? Did your visa get accepted or refused? Did you overstay your visa in any country? If the answers to these questions don’t work in your favor, it is still important to disclose this information throughout your Statement of Purpose. If you don’t disclose this information, your case officer will find it and think you are being untruthful resulting in a denied Australian Student Visa.
“Applicant reported traveling and working in the US, but did not specify what type of visa they held. I have taken into consideration that the applicant hasn’t previously travelled to Australia.”
In this case, our applicant made one of the most common SOP mistakes by not disclosing which type of visa they used to live and work in the United States of America. By not providing exact details of their visa and working situation, this potential student left their case officer without the sufficient documentation needed to approve their Australian Student Visa. This applicant received a refused Australian Student visa simply for not providing enough documentation of their previous immigration history. Don’t make the same common SOP mistake, provide as many details as possible throughout your Statement of Purpose.
