Australia Award Scholarship application
I heard about Australia Award Scholarship (AAS) since 2008 when one of my campus colleagues got scholarship to Australia. Since then, I attracted to collect information related to this scholarship. In 2014, I have opportunity to attended the AAS presentation to obtain essential information. Then, I collected significant information about studying options through the AAS website and information CD. My first experience on AAS both long term and short-term application was in 2015.
When I failed in the first attempt, I must hunt more information. Then, I attended International Education Fair hosted by Universitas Nusa Cendana Kupang (UNDANA) in 2016. Through this event I obtained deepen information from representatives of Australian universities, AAS and the International Development Program (IDP). Additionally, I bought some books that help me to understand more about scholarship preparation. And I also regularly visit the website of Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) to find the most suitable course and institution.
After failing in the second attempt in 2016, I attended classes and scholarship hunter groups both to boost my spirit and to achieve my goals, namely; English class held by Fortuna course, private class of academic English held by Via Vallen PhD, class of Berburu Beasiswa ala Forum Akademia NTT (BBAF), class of Smart Learning Center Kupang (SLCK) and also Let's Talk community. Moreover, I joined social media groups including Australia Embassy pages that continuously provide important information. Then, in 2017, I decided to take TOEFL test held by UNDANA, I expected different result when I submit the application but I failed again. Even though, I already have gotten Letter of Conditional Offer from my favorite University. That conditional offer encourages me to keep in touch with university admission officers. Since I am not selected yet as shortlisted candidates, I used the moment to improve my application and review the whole processes to have a better preparation. This time I am ready to win AAS.
