Band 8 letter sample
I am delighted to tell you that I am moving to your location to pursue higher studies. My admission has just been confirmed to the University of Toronto, and I am so glad that I will see you very soon.
I am going to study Masters of Business Administration, which is a two year full-time course. I will also be allowed one year to find full-time job if I choose to work there. Since the course is very expensive and there will be living expenses on top, I was thinking of taking up a part-time job along with my studies. It will help me bear my daily expenses. I was wondering if you could help suggest some job options in this regard and guide me on how I could apply for such jobs. Ideally, I would look for work closer to the university so commuting is not difficult.
Waiting to hear from you soon!
Love and regards,
