E) Dear Sir/Madam,

A) I am writing to apply for the MA Classical Archeology Course offered by

you university for the next academic year starting in September.

G) I am 28 years old and I’ve got a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from the University of Cambridge. I continued my studies and last year I was awarded a Master’s degree. I have always been interested in classical art. literature and languages. As a student at Whitby Secondary School I passed three A level exams: History, Latin and Classical Literature. Since the completion of my studies at Cambridge University I have been working as a curator at Whitby Town Museum. I have enjoyed my job enormously. However, I feel I need to continue my professional development and expand my knowledge of classical cultures. I believe that taking a place on the MA Classical Archeology Course would enable me to gain very valuable new insights into the classical period. Furthermore, it would give me the opportunity to do field work, which has been my wish for many years.

B) I enclose my Resume with further details of my qualifications and work experience. I hope that you will consider me for admission to the course. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

D) Yours faithfully,

F) Catharine M. Shelley


Victoria Street Poltava 12 May, 2010 Dunstan College Dear Sir,

I am writing to apply to the course in Daunston College for full-time summer school in August. I am 15 years old. I’ve finished ninth grade. I want to improve my knowledge of English, because I need it for studding at university after finishing school. I’m clearly realized that in order to get a good job one should know English. It is the language of communication, business, science and culture. I think English is worth studying. I am sure every well-educated person should speak English. I want to learn English because I want to read Hemingway, Shakespeare. Wild and Shaw in their native language.

Your faithfully, Nina Kostenko
