University of [UNIVERSITY]
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to you to express my interest in applying for the MSc [COURSE] programme at University of [UNIVERSITY], scheduled to start in September 2014, as the Erasmus student. In the folllowing letter I will introduce myself and explain why I think that University of [UNIVERSITY] is the right university for me.
My name is [NAME]. I am 27 years old and I am currently studying Master’s Degree programme in [COURSE] at the University of [HOME UNIVERSITY] in [HOMETOWN], Germany. I was born in [FOREIGN COUNTRY] but my family moved to Germany as I was a teenager. Despite the difficulties of studiing in german at the beginning I graduated with a Bachelor‘sdegree in [COURSE] from the University of [HOME UNIVERSITY] in [HOMETOWN], Germany in 2013. I got very good marks in several important and relevant subjects such as Microbiology, Pharmacokinetics, Thermodynamics and Biochemistry amongst many others.
There are several reasons why I have decided to apply for the Erasmus programme. First of all, I am sure that abroad experience would strongly enrich my future studies and help me in my prospective career. Furthermore it would be a very efficient way to improve my English. I have been learning English for 20 years, but I must admit that I speak it only rarely. I would like to change it and taking part in this programme represents a great opportunity. I also know from my own personal experience of learning German, that the best way to learn a foreign language is to go to a foreign country. That‘s why I would like to study in [LAND]. Moreover I consider Erasmus programme is agreat opportunity to get familiar with culture, history and customs of this country.
University of [UNIVERSITY] appears to be the perfect complement to my education. The offered master program of [COURSE] provide particular courses that are not avalible in my University in Germany. These courses would enable me to develop the nesessary theoretical knowlege and practical skills that would give a significant plus to my career in the future. Another reason for my interest are the small classes at the University of [UNIVERSITY]. In my mind, the classes with high number of students at other universities are inpossiblefor effective studying.
I would be pleased to participate in the Erasmus progamme at the University of [UNIVERSITY]. You may be assured that I will prove to be an enthusiastic, hard-working and motivated student.
Thank you very much for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.
