    I feel that your motivation letter is a little short. I suggest that you consider adding more details to convince the university that you're a candidate worthy of a bursary and of a place in their NDip program.

    You could talk about your achievements (academic and otherwise), special interest in horticulture, future goals, career aspirations, research interests ... etc. You could also explain why you should be considered for the bursary.

    I also suggest you remove the sentence I underlined as it is informal and inappropriate in my opinion.
