QUESTION
How do you write a 500 word essay in response to a question that could be answered with one small sentence?
The question is: Why do you want to enter the Zoo Animal Technology Program?
I want to because I love animals and want to work with them in the future, but I can’t think of anything else and don’t know how to put that into 500 words….Can anyone help?

ANSWER
Say why you love animals, and why you see them as valuable and what they mean to you. Have you had any previous experience? Talk about that if you have, or talk about the different sorts of experience you’d like to gain in the future. Explain your future aspirations; what sort of work do you want to do with animals eventually? Say what it is that makes this programme so special, and what makes you more the right person to be accepted. Say what you want to gain from the experience, and what you can give to them. Put your passion for animals onto the page :). Good luck.
