Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in pursuing Catering Diploma course from the Sydney University.
I would like to apply for a scholarship as my previous academic records and job experiences make me eligible for that. I am hoping to get enrolled in this prestigious university and complete my dream course in Catering Management.

Sydney University has an enviable track record of producing top class professionals who not only excel in their professional life but do something good for the humanity. Built in 1850, the academic environment, course curriculum and teachers of this university make it one of the best universities in Australia and I want to get enrolled in this university to receive a top class degree and learn skills for life. This is one of the best Public research university and has always prioritised research work for the greater benefits of all.

I am very happy to say that I have an average CGPA of 3.80 and I scored an overall 8 band score in my IELTS exam. A few of my articles have been published in the renowned research papers and I have three years work experience in hotel management. I would be grateful if you could help me with the procedure of applying for the course and being eligible for the scholarship.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Neha Bohra
