Master of Information Technology course choicePlease give any feedback for this statement on "Why did you choose your proposed course and institution?" for Australia Awards Scholarship.
I chose the Master of Information Technology (IT) course because I am an IT graduate currently employing as a Senior Software Engineer. As much as this field excites me, this course will also equip me with the qualifications for the next goal of my life. IT is transforming the lives of all XXX. It is inevitably one of the most powerful tools to improve my country's economy. Therefore, by gaining advanced technical IT skills, and sharing it with future students, I hope to improve the status of my country even by a bit. To follow this course, I selected the University of YYY and the University of ZZZ as preferred institutions since both of them are prestigious universities in Australia with high rankings.
The University of YYY is my first choice because it is the highest ranked Australian university for technology. It also supports applicants with previous studies in the same field, eligible for credits. It could help me to advance into specialised subjects. The university also allows me to select an elective track to support my career goals and interests. Moreover, it hosts a large number of international students which will encourage me to engage in different cultures and perspectives.
My second choice is the University of ZZZ because of its global reputation in teaching quality and research output. One of my personal goals is to become a great lecturer in my country, and by studying at this university, I believe, I will be exposed to international experts and their teaching techniques too. Masters course at the University of ZZZ includes a master thesis, and I hope it will improve my research skills. By studying here, I will be able to learn from other researchers and build up a network where I may find motivation for my future PhD research as well. The course list is rich in subjects covering different areas of IT which also allows me to hone my expertise by selecting preferred ones.
