Anita (Name changed) is a Bachelor of Dental Surgery student from India. She completed her Post Graduate Diploma in Dental Materials and went on to involve in a few community development and health awareness projects in India as part of her course. Her passion is to serve the community and support development of health programs for the underprivileged.
Ideally, she wanted to study abroad to delve more into this area. She initially chose to study Master of Public Health program from a reputed University in Australia. But she was soon feeling that the course was a misfit for her. She wanted to study a social science oriented course that focussed on community development, health and youth work but she felt that the public health program focussed heavily on health care system policies. She completed her first semester and was on the lookout for a better course that suits her interest.
She came to Aussizz Group for help and our expert Education team identified her interest and goals, and suggested that a Master of Social Work course aligns better with her career aspirations. We guided her on social work careers and about the job opportunities available for this field of study. She applied for Master of Social Work courses with a few Universities but was unable to meet the entry requirements for this course owing to her Education background. Anita was unable to secure a place to study Social Work as she had not studied in a cognate discipline of humanities, medicine, education or psychology and so on for a minimum of one year in her previous studies.
Not to dwell on the negative outcome, Aussizz encouraged Anita to try satisfying the academic criteria by creating a stronger application. We helped her achieve a positive application outcome the following way.
- We guided her to secure professional recommendation letters from her previous work place where she had participated in voluntary community projects and from her professors she had interacted with.
- We guided her to start a short term CERT IV in Disability program to ensure relevant qualification in the field and gain a foot hold in community services field in Australia. She was soon able to start a part time job in this field.
- We helped her prepare a stronger statement of purpose detailing her initiatives back in her home country to engage with the community
Through our professional advice, Anita managed to crack the academic criteria in spite of not having a relevant background which hampered her aspirations in the first place. Anita is now a disability care worker and a final year student of Master of Social Work. She looks forward to working as a Social Worker in Australia after completing her Education.
