    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Thank you very much for giv­ing me this oppor­tu­ni­ty to write to your office to show my inter­est in study­ing at Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don (exter­nal pro­gram). I am a col­lege grad­u­ate with diplo­ma in Human Resours­es Man­age­ment from Inter-Africa Col­lege of Man­age­ment in Nairo­bi, Kenya.

    Since I com­plet­ed my diplo­ma pro­gram in 2007,I have been look­ing for a schol­ar­ship to com­plete the degree course in Human Resources Man­age­ment, but I have been unable to get it. For­tu­nate­ly, I decid­ed to vis­it your web­site today and found out that the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don among oth­ers offers online free cours­es in any fields.

    For this rea­son, I am request­ing your office to assist me by offer­ing me online free course in Human Resources Man­age­ment. I want to study for degree in this field at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don. I am con­fi­dent that I can suc­cess­ful­ly do my course if I am giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to do it online.

    I look for­ward to hear­ing from your pos­i­tive con­sid­er­a­tion and thank you once again for your coop­er­a­tion.

    Yours sin­cere­ly

    Mark Yak Yak

  • Peo­ple with no choic­es often see these options quite ben­e­fi­cial. Learn­ing and get­ting edu­ca­tion has no lim­its or spe­cif­ic ways. Debates and dis­cus­sions on such mat­ters been a part since such sys­tem was intro­duced. But it’s a fact we can’t change one’s opin­ion.
    Any­way look­ing to see some more com­ments.

  • C. Coburn says:
