Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to request some information regarding your Tertiary Preparation Certificate programme which I am planning to pursue this term. I am hoping you would provide the necessary details so that I can intake the course.

Regarding my education qualification, I have finished my high school diploma from the Montessori Elementary School in Baguio, the Philippines, three years ago and my major was science. I received 76% marks in my school final exam.

Now I want to get admitted to a reputed university for higher studies in the UK and for that I want to enrol in this course. I am convinced that the tertiary preparation course at your institution would greatly help me in my university education.

For that, I need to know the course duration, tuition fee and admission procedure for the Tertiary Preparation Certificate programme. I am planning to take the architectural study in a reputed UK university and would really appreciate it if you inform me of the courses I should take. Finally, do inform me of the document checklist for getting admission.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to your kind response regarding my concerns.

Yours faithfully,

Lyn Olivar

Model Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like some information about the Tertiary Preparation Certificate programme that I am planning to intake this summer. Your institution was recommended to me by a colleague and I am hoping you would send me the necessary information so that I can get admitted to this course.

I completed my high school diploma six years ago. Since then I have worked as an Office Assistant in two companies and currently working as a librarian in the Johnson Library. However, in order to advance my career and to be in a better job sector, I will need to do some further study, perhaps in Marketing or Management. Because I have a long study gap, I believe that I should complete the Tertiary Preparation Certificate course before enrolling in the Bachelor course in a university.

Please send me the necessary information along with the admission form to my mail address mentioned at the top at your convenience. I intend to start the course next summer.  

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Emma Watson


Model Answer 3:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to request the necessary information about the Tertiary Preparation Certificate programme that is offered at your university. For your kind information, I am planning to pursue the course in the next term.

As far as my previous educational qualifications are concerned, I have finished my higher school certification about 8 years ago, after completing 12 years of schooling, in India with a GPA of 3.75. Later on, I also finished my Bachelor degree in science before starting my career as a Nutrition Expert at a leading snack manufacturing company in my country. By the way, my major was science, and I studied physics, mathematics, chemistry, zoology and English among other subjects.

Currently, I am planning to get admission to a renowned Engineering university in Australia in order to pursue a post-graduate education because I am convinced that this tertiary preparation programme would help me further my career. Therefore, I would really appreciate it if you please send me all the necessary information regarding the admission procedure, course duration and tuition fees at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours faithfully,

Mousumi Ahona

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Johnson K, and I am writing this letter to enquire about one of the Certification Courses conducted by TAPE. The name of the course in which I am interested is called "TAPE Preparation Course 1". I want to enquire about the prerequisites of this course to enrol in it.

As for my educational background, I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's Degree at Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore. The course is oriented towards Wireless Networking. I have to take up this course as it is a prerequisite for the Bachelor's Degree. Can you please provide me with the information related to the course? I need to know about the course duration, the time slot availability, the pre-requisites to join the course and the fee structure.

Also, can you please include the brochure for the other courses available at your Institute? I would be highly indebted if you could do that.

Thanking You.

Yours sincerely,

Johnson K

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am planning to enrol for the Tertiary Preparation Certificate course in June 2022 at your institute. So I require some basic information.

For your kind reference, I would like to share my education and experience details so that you can give me proper directions for my enrollment in the course. I have completed my intermediate education in 2015, and then, immediately joined Bros & Pro Corporation as a Sales Assistance in a children's garments store. I have work experience of 8 years without any carrier improvements & managerial position just due to my educational limitations. Due to these hurdles in carrier growth, I have decided to complete my business degree.

As suggestions from my school teacher Mr. James, TPC will build solid background & major improvements in business studies. So I planned to complete TPC in 2022, and then I join Open University to get a bachelor's degree in the business course.

Now I need your support to provide detailed information about TPC course contents, benefits, enrollment plan & schedule. After your confirmation, I will try to visit your institute for further process.

Yours faithfully,

Tayyab Arif

Dear sir, I am Jones, a graduate in engineering from the British college here in London. I am writing to inquire about the tertiary preparatory course to be conducted by TAPE. I have cleared my final year graduation exams and is currently pursuing my internship training on Mechatronics. Being an aspirant of post graduation from London University, I think the said course on tape best suits me. I have learned from my seniors who did post graduation that such courses were of great help to them in their thesis . I would request your good self to send me details regarding the course. I need to know the cost involved, duration and commencing date of the course. I hope to find a helping hand from your good office with the enrollment formalities.Hoping to hear from you soon.SincerelyJones.
