to become an expert in education

George H.W Bush once said that "Education is the key to opportunity. It's a ticket out of poverty". Being born and raised in an indigent family, his words have always inspired me to become an expert in education. Despite having some outstanding achievements in my previous major, Infrastructure Engineering, I believe that becoming an educational expert is my aspiration. In addition, English is one of the most spoken languages in the world. Being fluent in English helps one stand a higher chance of working in an international company with a decent income. Hence, those are the main reasons why I have chosen MA in Teaching English To Speakers Of Other Languages (TESOL) as my proposed course. With this course, I can become an expert in the field, which opens up more opportunities for me to education Vietnamese students at a professional level, especially those in remote areas who have no access to quality education, to break the bone of poverty and better their living standards.

I choose to study at the University of South Australia (UniSA) because of some reasons. Firstly, the degree structure at the university is planned thoroughly. Particularly, the two courses namely Research Methods and Issues in Education and Curriculum Development in TESOL available in the institution would provide me with practical knowledge to identify educational problems in my home country and develop an appropriate curriculum for Vietnamese students. Not only would this benefit students' future greatly as they can progress in their careers and improve their living conditions, but it can also help me be an effective leader who can make positive changes to my country's educational system.

Secondly, the university has students from more than 80 countries all over the world and one-third of them are international students. This would help me form new relationships, which allows me to expand my knowledge on cultures of different countries as well as share Vietnamese culture with them, helping them more and feel more interested in this S-shaped country.

This is a good draft. You show clear personal and professional reasons for your course choice and institution. The thing is, you still need to choose a second course at the same university or, a second course and different university. You may even opt for the same course at a different university based on a different set of reasons. The second option is a standard requirement for your scholarship consideration. The reviewers require it as a part of the assessment process. You may remove the current last paragraph to free up the character count for the 2nd option purpose. That presentation will prove that you have properly reasearched and considered all options in relation to your MA interests.
