  • what course are you doing now

  • what course would you like to change to

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir, 

Model Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am Caterina Holmes, a first-year student in your college. I am writing for your permission to let me change one of my courses.

During my admission back in January, I took music course and it has been a month since then. So far I am not happy with my progress and I am confident that I would do better if I take the history curriculum, which I have always felt passionate about. I would not say that I feel negative about my music classes, but I believe I should go with the course I feel more attached to.

When I got admitted to the college, no seat in history department was available and the music was my second preference. Recently I talked to the dean of the history department and he notified that with your permission, I would be able to intake history.

I would request you to permit me to intake history course and drop the music class. I would be always grateful to you for granting me to switch my course.

Yours sincerely,

Caterina Holmes
