Model Answer 1:
I am certainly not a “health-freak”, but I have some genuine interest in what we eat, and how our eating behaviour affects our overall health and moods. The issue becomes even more important when we see so many different kinds of food and snacks are flooded into our markets with a very little or no nutritional value.

And, it is from this concern that I would like to take a course on improving nutrition and health if I ever have time in the future. This interesting course covers the aspects of biology, chemistry, and even physics to some extent, along with, of course, gaining an important insight of healthier eating, in order to teach us about six nutrients, called carbohydrates, fats, proteins, water, vitamins and minerals, that are needed for energy, maintenance of tissues and regulation of bodily processes. 

This course would also help me understand how to read food labels, choosing healthier food, hydrating appropriately, and understanding how we should taste food so that we become more informed about the choices we make for the food we eat without spending too much time or money, or without running to a doctor.  This course would also investigate how information about healthy eating differs around the world. By the way, one can take this course from any local health institute or university. People can take this course also from online these days.

Anyway, I want to do this course because there are a number of benefits to taking this course. It will allow us to consider the relationships between food and feelings and alternative routes to offer help and support to those who need it. This nutrition courses would also teach me how food, nutrients and health science can be used for medicinal and therapeutic effects – to prevent illness, like obesity, malnutrition and over-nutrition (yes, there is such a thing called “over-nutrition”) – especially after learning so much conflicting information about our food habits and diets.  Finally, I want to take this course also because it would allow me to become a registered fitness professional in the near future.


Sample Answer 2: 
If I get time I would like to learn the computer graphics designing course. It is a combination of learning some theoretical aspect of graphics designing and then hands-on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. These two are widely used image editing and graphics designing tools that emphasising on computer design and website designing. 

I would like to get admitted in (...say an institution name...) who offers a professional course on graphics designing. They have a good reputation for teaching the course participants accurately and effectively. Since I have offices/ classes till the evening, I would like to enrol in the evening course that starts after 7.00 pm. The course fee is reasonable and I would have the option to pay the fees in 3-4 instalments and that would be very convenient for me. 

This should not be a very difficult course for me as I already have some background on computing and graphics designing. But I will have to concentrate on the course and maintain the regularity. This course would be a 6 months course and that's why I will have to adjust my time during this 6 months period. Another thing that required a course participant is to practice a lot. Since this is a creative task and the course teacher would show us how to do something, the course takers have to work hard to improve their skills and creativity. 

This course would be helpful for me to do better in my career. Graphics design is required for many jobs and knowing it would be a great advantage for me. Besides, If I can become a prominent graphics designer, I would be able to work for clients from different countries as a freelancer besides my day job.
