In many cases, potential students choose to write their Statement of Purpose without first referencing helpful articles like this one. There are many factors to consider when it comes to writing a proper Statement of Purpose and too often we see students make careless common SOP mistakes. The majority of students who have their Australian Student Visa refused did not research and write a proper Statement of Purpose. This week we will share one of the most common SOP mistakes made by potential students so you can avoid visa refusal.
“You wish to study English in Australia at the International House Sydney College. You stated that after completion of this course you wish to return home and begin working for an international company. You did not however, provide detailed or convincing testimony as to how this Australian non-award English course would assist you in achieving this goal in comparison to a qualification which could be acquired domestically or in Europe.”
It’s no secret that Europe is filled with high quality Universities and Institutions. The common SOP mistake this potential student made was not choosing a course of study unique to Australia. As the reviewing officer noted, the English course this potential student listed was a “non-award” English course; A comparable course could be found for the same value closer to their home country. Be sure to highlight unique courses that cannot be found online throughout your Statement of Purpose for the best chances of Australian Student Visa acceptance.
“Based on the information you provided, I do not find compelling reason for you to travel to Australia at significant expense to pursue the proposed English course when your language improvement goals could be adequately served in Europe.”
Unfortunately when applying for an Australian Student Visa, location matters. If you have Institutions or Universities that are held in high regard close to your current home country, it will take more effort to convince your reviewing officer to accept your visa. You can do so by choosing specific, unique courses that will directly benefit you and your industry when you return back to your country of origin.
