Letter Writing # 203 - You cannot join the course due to some reasons

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You have recently applied for a course at a college and have been accepted. However, you cannot join the course due to some reasons.

Write a letter to the principal of the college. In your letter:

  • which course you have been applied for
  • why you cannot join the course
  • ask about the possibility of the course in the future

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,


Sample Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am excited to be accepted into the Advertising and Public Relations course at your college in the summer semester. However, I regret to inform you that I will not be able to join the course as I was denied a visa from the embassy.

Last March, I applied for a full-time three-year Bachelor of Arts course in “Advertising and Public Relations” and got the acceptance letter on 12th April. I initially planned to enrol in the course from the beginning of June but unfortunately, my visa application with the UK embassy was rejected. They are yet to send me details for the refusal but I thought I should inform you without any delay as someone else should get the chance. I guess I will have to wait for the next semester to start the course.

I would like to request you to consider me for the next semester. In case this is not possible, I would like to know the procedure to apply again to the same course.  

I am looking forward to hearing from you at your convenience.

Yours Faithfully,

Rohit Kumar
