Letter of application:
Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing to apply for a place on the History MA course which commences this September at
Winston University.
I am 25 years old and I have completed a History degree at Macbriney University, where I received
first class honours. Prior to this I was a pupil in grammar school, where I obtained 9 GCSEs and
four A levels in History, English, Mathematics and Geography.
Since the completion of my BA I have spent one year working as assistant historian. This work was
extremely enjoyable and I am now anxious to specialise by gaining further qualifications before
embarking on my chosen career in this field.
I enclose details of my education and qualifications in the hope that you will consider me for entry.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully,
XYZ
