Samples for University & Job Application forms and Recommendation Request
Request letters are very easy to write. The golden rule is to say exactly what you are requesting or what you want. There's no point beating about the bush. The first paragraph should make it clear to the reader what it is that you want. Below are some sample request letters asking for various things. You can easily modify them to suit your situation.
LETTER 1: Request for Application forms for University
Dear Sir or Madam,
Re: Request for Application Forms
I am writing to request for application forms for admission to Alay University for the September 2009 entry. I have successfully completed my high school education and I meet the entry requirements to your University. After reading through the University's prospectus, I have decided to apply for one of your 4-year degree courses in Electronic Engineering.
Could you please send the forms to my address as shown above.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Ray Bobman, JR
