WHY NOT INDIA : I know that in this competitive world we have to do better than others so if we have to do better, we have to have International Master Degree in a particular subject who helps in achieving excellence in the respective field, in turn this may change my future prospects. In the courses offered in India at master degree level are not practical and focused. The admission criteria are tough.  I need to sit for the entrance test for securing admission in Masters Courses. Acceptance ratio is very less as huge number of students attempt for the qualifying test but the seats are limited. Only few Universities are really good but the competition is very high. I may not get international exposure if I study my master’s course in India. That is the reason why I chose to study master degree in Australia. I have options pursue my Master’s in courses like structures, transportation, water recourses etc.   But there are limited universities offering Project Management which is my career goal. So I was looking for a course which will provide me leadership qualities, management skills along with technical knowhow. Small colleges offering the courses are not up to the mark as there is a problem with, Labs, library, faculty etc.,  WHY NOT OTHER COUNTRIES:  Even I tried to find out about studies in different countries. For US it takes long time to process the student application and further the visa decision is solely rest with Visa Officer. The present situation in USA is very discouraging and parents are scared to invest on my education in USA as the Government has cancelled the universities like Tri-Vallay University, SVU, NPU students were deported and after issuing the visas the following universities are blacklisted American Bible College University, Arizona, Belford University, American University, Hawaii, Buxton University, Concordia College and University, Kensington University. All programs in UK are of one year and actual study period ranges from 10 to 11months which I feel is insufficient. I could see that, Australian studies are more beneficial as compared to other countries. The conversion rate is also high. The degree is also not recognized by the government sector in India. Even the climatic conditions are not favourable for Indian students. WHY AUSTRALIA: Australia is the third largest country with advanced education system which can provide me a platform to improve my management skills which can be beneficial for my profession. Australia is a leading global education power house with some of the world’s best facilities and educators, providing local and international students with a range of quality study options. Universities in Australia offer a wide variety of courses to meet each and every student’s requirements. The curriculum and infrastructure are latest while the faculty is up-to-date and result-oriented. The cost of pursuing education and living in Australia is 30 to 40 % less than that of USA, UK, and CANADA varying with the preferred location. Australian qualifications are recognized by employers and leading education institution in many countries around the world.  Moreover most courses and training undertaken by international students in Australia are covered by Australian Qualification Framework (AQF). It is a system of learning which is authorized by the Australian government.     AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION: It is third most popular international student’s destination in the world.     Variety of courses offered by many institutions.8 out of 100 top universities in the world are Australian.University system ranking is 9th in the world ahead of Germany, New Zealand and Japan.20,000 crores of annual government investments on International scholarshipsAustralian universities feature in the top 50 ranked universities in the world in Engineering and Technology, Environment Sciences, Art and Humanities, Life sciences, Pre-clinical and Health and Social Sciences.Finally, the international degree is valued across the world and can get opportunities not only in India but also in other countries. Therefore, I have chosen Australia as my destination. WHY SYDNEY: Sydney is the capital of state New South Wales. The city of Sydney is by far largest in Australia with a population of more than five million its density is 38 kilometres, Established in 26th January 1788. It is one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world with inhabitant speaking nearly 140 languages. It has most beautiful harbour in the world framed by the iconic Sydney harbour bridge and the stunning opera house. This natural wonder provides a spectacular back drop to activities as varied as sailing, fishing, and etc. As it is the capital city even the education different from other countries. So, I preferred to study in Sydney at Central Queensland University (CQU).  WHY CQU:Central Queensland University (CQU) was originally founded in Rockhampton in 1967 and was known as the Queens Land Institute of Technology (Capricornia) 1992 the institution achieved full university status to become Central Queens Land University (CQU).It is a world class-quality, multi-city educational institution with a strong adherence to facilitating students’ learning process, enabling them to ‘be what they want to be’. Nearly half of the students are international, which ensures a friendly and welcoming environment.

CQU also has international campuses in Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast.Central Queensland University is a public university with strong on-going relationships with its communities, industries, and businesses. This relationship provides students the opportunity for multiple learning experiences, enriching their learning process. Education courses are designed in such a way to deliver both discipline-specific skills and generic transferable skills relevant to life-long learning with affordable fee structure.With over 100 different degree programs to choose from, Central Queensland University offers an education for everyone. Education curriculums provide one of the best combinations of practical, classroom-based and theoretical, workplace-based learning across any Australian university. The University provides 10 weeks Internship which will further increase my employability. I am grateful to the University for granting me the International Student Scholarship.Student Support:It offers a variety of support services to assist the students to develop the personal resilience & skills needed to achieve both their academics and personal goals.Library: Library offers total support and innovative information to students regardless of location and their mode of study.Campus libraries provide learning spaces and resources which enhance the learning experience.The Desk:It gives free access to modules, quizzes & tools to help with everyday issues & common study problemsStudent Mentor Services:These services aim to help new students in UG & PG programs to quickly feel at home at CQU during their first year of studies.Campus transfer facilities: Students can opt for transfer facilities after the completion of the semester if they wish to. Why Master of Project Management: Project management skills can be applied across many industry sectors. The Master of Project Management is aimed at professionals who would like to develop their skills in this area and gain a high-level qualification.I will learn how to organize and manage resources in such a way as to deliver the work required within the defined scope, time, cost and quality constraints and within acceptable levels of risk. I will understand the principles and applications of project management in asset and operations mode.The study of Project Management spans all the phases of a Project life -cycle, from preliminary feasibility analysis and concept development through to commissioning on the project. Study of Construction Management focuses on the construction execution phase which I have studied in my bachelors as a major subject called Construction Management and Administration (CMA). Both of these disciplines contain interrelated processes that can be modelled and sometimes optimized. The challenge lies in recognizing and balancing their human and technical dimensions. Meeting this challenge requires a good understanding qualitative and quantitative principles of management and engineering applied to domain of engineering projects.  No of courses are 15 and core subjects are11 and 4 electives. Following are the subjects of MPM sem-1: Project Management ConceptsInitiating and Planning Projects Project Management MethodologiesExecuting and Closing Projects  Course outcomes:  MPM helps to expose myself to the modern projects and management in organisations directing my future towards great advancements.Lets me to identify the areas of a project that will meet the needs of professional goals and avoid risks.Manage and Evaluate own performance and professional development by working independently and by employing appropriate professional and technical skills.Critically evaluate the impact of Project strategies on stakeholder and community outcomes and outputs.MPM helps me in relating projects with constructions and implementing effective techniques in my home country for a better and efficient Infrastructure development.  CAREER PLAN:  Career opportunities are endless for Project Management graduates employment can be found in many industries such as Engineering, Business, Construction, Transportation and many others. This course will boost my career advancement prospects and provides a competitive advantage for me over others without this qualification. I could relate Project Management with constructions and do well in my field as a Project Engineer, Civil Engineering has been an aspect of life since the beginning of human existence. My country, India, is on the gateway of restless development in infrastructure like roads, bridges, highways, expressways etc. India is in a furious hurry to make up the lost time and catch up with the developed world and reach better standard of living. Civil engineering will play a crucial role in influencing the face of Indian Panorama which will be incomplete without proper management. Therefore, I want to implement the strategies and techniques which I will learn from MPM into my country and support the development which is on its way. On my return, according to my Qualification I may be designated as a Project Engineer, Planning Engineer, Construction Manager, Site Engineer, Civil Engineer, Structural Engineer etc., in a public or private sector in companies like L&T, GAMON INDIA, GMR, PWD, IRRIGATION DEPT, INDIAN RAILWAYS, R&D, IRCON International Limited, TATA Projects Ltd., ESSAR Group, Jaypee Group, Hindustan Construction Company etc., with a healthy package of Rs.6 lakhs to 7 lakhs per annum. After completion of my master’s program in Australia I will come back to India. I will search for jobs through job portals like,, with designation Project Leader, Technical Leader are offering companies are Alstom Transport Limited, HERE Solutions India Pvt. Ltd., Zen3 Info Solutions Pvt. Ltd. Offering package starting from 4.5 to 6.0 Lakhs per annum.  Websites of Government Organisations and newspapers advertisements and walk in interviews. As I will have a qualification master of project management from overseas I will be given more preference compare to other graduates who do not have this degree.    FAMILY CIRCUMSTANCES:I would like to assure the authorities that I will be coming back to India as I am the elder son of my parents and has responsibility of looking after my parents during their old age. As such my parents are very much attached to me. They have granted me permission for higher education as they would like to see me as a successful person but we will be missing each other for the duration of my education in Australia.My parents own four properties valued around Rs. 3.5 crore and located in Musheerabad, Hyderabad. This will be directly or indirectly inherited by me and my siblings in future. Subsequently, I will be joining my parents in India and the joy cannot be counted in money terms. Hence my return to India is inevitable and must to complete my parents and my ambitions of working in India and achieving career in my own country and also I need to look after my family property.A master’s degree from the Central Queensland University (CQU) would provide me a buttressing academic environment to come up with my talent and prove myself in the desired field. From my side I would give my whole with diligence and perseverance to the university. It would be a great opportunity for me to pursue my master’s studies with adequate assistance at the Central Queensland University (CQU). I am confident that I would withstand the high standards set by the university. These myriad of reasons helped me to opt civil engineering as my graduation and directing me towards Project Management as my Masters. I shall be grateful to you for providing me an opportunity to study in your institutionVISA OBLIGATIONS:VISA SUBCLASS: Higher education sector 500 which means it allows staying in Australia to study full-time higher education course like bachelors and post graduate studies.I must remain enrolled and maintain satisfactory course progress and attendance of 80%.If I wish to change my address, I need to provide it to the university and DIBP within 7 days.I cannot change my university for 6 months upon enrolment.
