Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am an overseas student and I will be joining your university from early next month. I am writing this letter to seek information regarding the accommodation.

I will be studying bachelors in psychology and would like to know if new students are provided accommodation on university campus. If so, how do we need to apply for it? Also, what transport facilities are available for the pupils if they are staying away from the university? Moreover, do overseas students receive any information about the hostel and other facilities around the university or do they need to make all the arrangement themselves?

In addition, since I am interested in working part-time to pay for my living expenses while studying, I would also like to know the class schedule of the studies.

I look forward to your reply since it will help me to plan my studies and work accordingly.

Yours sincerely
