PERSONAL DETAILS AND COURSE CHOICE:
I, YALAVARTHI AKSHAY KUMAR, applying for the Canadian study visa to pursue Micro-Computers and Networking Systems offered by Herzing College in Montreal, Quebec, CA.
Education is an important asset and quality of every individual, so everyone must strive hard and acquire the best of it. Though I did my undergraduate program in Electronics and Communication Engineering, my keen interest for learning new ideas, when combined with my inner desire to reach a degree of excellence in every piece of work I perform.
MY INTENT TO PURSUE MICRO-COMPUTERS AND NETWORKING SYSTEMS COURSE:
Computers have quickly evolved. From the main stream computer that typically fit in a room, We have reached a point where we can carry them in our palm. The Micro-Computers and Networking Systems will enable me to aggregate all my previous knowledge & experience on the field and encourage in achieving my career goals.
The Initial curriculum will have introduction to computing & application software, architecture, electronics for network specialist and introduction to networking. The focus will be on various networks.

The third term curriculum focuses on cloud computing and on LINUX. This also includes installation of LINUX Server operating systems and there will be team projects to ensure the continued development of critical skills.

MY FAMILY BACKGROUND:
I have a family of four members, my father Mr. YALAVARTHI BRAHMAIAH has been working in the Indian Railways for the past 8 years and he also served for the Indian Army for the period of 20 years. My mother Mrs. YALAVARTHI SIVA VENKATA JAYA LAKSHMI is a homemaker. I have a elder sister who is presently pursuing her Master’s in Quality System Engineering in Canada.
I have excelled in academics at every stage of my education. In the twelve years of my schooling, I have always been ranked in good number in my class and completed my schooling with 8.8 CGPA out of 10. I was passionate of holding a degree in electronics and with that interest I have taken MPC (Mathematics, Physics, chemistry) in intermediate and had a good percentage 86.2 on the scale of 100. After completing my intermediate I have to choose a bachelors where I can get deep knowledge of electronics, and I choose Electronics and communication Engineering and completed my bachelors with Second class division.
REASON WHY I CHOOSE HERZING:
Herzing College in Montreal offers quality education in a challenging yet student-friendly environment. The flexibility of the curriculum will give me the broad-based education I need to widen the scope of my knowledge and skills. Herzing offer effective teacher-student interaction, efficient class schedules and affordable tuition fees.
PURPOSE OF CHOOSING CANADA FOR HIGHER EDUCATION:
A post-graduation diploma degree in Canada would expose me to a different education system altogether. Along with that, cross-cultural learning would come handy. The international education will give me the training and the caliber to meet the global clients. Canada has traditionally been a country of immigrants and it supports multicultural diversity both in the class and society. It’s an immigration nation and Canadians can make almost anyone feel welcomed. It has a good blend of international students with varied cultures, highly qualified professors and strong education system. It has plenty of available resources make Canada an ideal place for me to pursue my higher studies.
Funding for my study in Canada:
The total cost of the program is approximately $25,000(Twenty five thousand CAD). The Admission fees and the first semester fees of $10,470 have been paid to the College. I intend to finance the rest of the tuition fees of $14,170 (approximately 8.5 lacs INR), through the bank loan that has been granted to me my HDFC on the basis of my merit (Education loan of $ 35,000 CAD). Father’s Provident Fund (approximately Principal amount of 3.7 lacs INR).
My plan is to complete the post-graduation diploma in Canada successfully and gain some experience and then return to India with Canadian Qualification and experience which would give me an edge over others in the ever opportunistic Indian market.
I feel that diploma study at your college will be the most logical extension of my academic pursuit and a major step towards achieving my objectives. I would be grateful to you if I’m accorded the opportunity to purse my studies at your institution and am able to justify your faith in me.
