Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked country in South Asia. It is bordered to the north by the People's Republic of China, and to the south, east, and west by the Republic of India. With an area of 147,181 square kilometres (56,827 sq mi) and a population of approximately 30 million, Nepal is the world's 93rd largest country by land mass and the 41st most populous country. Nepal has a diverse geography—fertile plains, subalpine forested hills, and eight of the world's ten tallest mountains. Mount Everest, the highest peak of the world, lies in Nepal. Kathmandu is the nation's capital and the country's largest metropolitan city. Nepal is a multiethnic country with Nepali as the official language.

Nepal is a country of highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. 
By some measures, Hinduism is practiced by a larger majority of people in Nepal than in any other nation. Buddhism, though a minority faith in the country, is linked historically with Nepal as the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama, who as the Gautam Buddha gave birth to the Buddhist tradition. Nepal is governed according to the Constitution of Nepal, which came into effect on 20 September 2015, affirming Nepal as a secular federal parliamentary republic divided into seven provinces. It defines Nepal as having multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, multi-religious, multi-cultural characteristics with common aspirations of people living in diverse geographical regions, and being committed to and united by a bond of allegiance to the national independence, territorial integrity, national interest, and prosperity of Nepal. All Nepali people collectively constitute the state.

SOP Guidelines:


As the name says, “Statement of Purpose (SOP) is a statement or essay about your main purpose of applying to a university or a college abroad.” When applying to study at a university or a college abroad, one of the most important pieces of a strong application is your Statement of Purpose. A Statement of Purpose is a short essay that highlights your educational background, achievements, and goals. 


Most importantly, a good well-crafted SOP brings your chance to impress the admission committee by presenting your profile through an essay. The committee wants to see whether you take an interest in letting them know how much you want to study at their university or college. Below are the important guidelines for drafting a SOP for overseas universities in the USA, UK, Australia, NZ and Canada: 


1.   Start your SOP with a brief introduction stating your full name, date of birth, nationality and where you are currently living. You must also include the name of the course and institution where you intend to study and identify who will sponsor or finance your studies in Australia or other chosen destination. 


2.  Provide brief details of your education history – from Year 10 and 12 equivalent qualifications to your highest qualification.


3.  If applicable, describe your employment history including the name of the company, job title and the duration of each job you have held. 


4.  State how your selected course is linked to your previous study and/or work experience. If there is no link, explain why you are seeking a change of discipline and therefore a career change. 


5.  Describe the specific research you conducted which led you to decide on your selected course (Compare your University with other Universities). You must state the reasons on why you have chosen the selected course of study and why you have chosen to study at your University. You must include the full title and duration of the course and the specific location or campus at where this course is being offered. You should also be able to identify the career opportunities or professional recognition aligned with the course that you are intending to study.


6.  If there are similar courses of the same international standing available in your home country, provide reasons on why you choose to study in Australia or USA or UK instead.


7.   Provide reasons why you chose Australia or your chosen study destination rather than other countries like USA, Canada, New Zealand and European.


8.   If you have dependents (spouse and children), please provide their names and age. Also indicate if they plan to accompany you or join you later or remain in your home country whilst you study in abroad


9.   Explain how this course will benefit you in your future career prospects back in your home country or in other international settings where employment opportunities may be available for you. (It would be better if you mention name of companies or organizations, positions, and salary ranges).


10.  Provide clear and compelling reasons for returning to your home country once you successfully complete your selected course in your study destination. In this section, you must be able to show your genuine intention to temporarily stay in that country as a student and how you implement knowledge, skills and experience that you gained from the respective country and university after studies in your future career path.


11.   Concluding paragraph must be the summary of your essay or SOP.
