Dear Sir/Madam:

I write to you with the intention of showing my interest and motivation in becoming part of the group of students selected to participate in the International Business Bachelor Program 2005-2006.

I am Andrea *** ***, a dynamic and enthusiastic 27 year-old woman, proud of having the Colombian Nationality. Most of my life I have spent in my home town, ***, Colombia and precisely in my country I have followed all my studies. The most relevant of them is the 4 years of the Business Administration Bachelor Program I followed in the second best private university in my region. Annexed to this document you can find copies of the corresponding certificates and description of the subjects I took in those 4 years. With this you could make a knowing decision about what year of study I am qualified to enroll to.

I chose the Business Administration track because I have always had affinity and interest in business management. At 18 I started working in the front desk and reception areas of big companies, which motivated me to keep studying in order to be a desirable candidate to higher job positions. All of this driven by my intention of reaching my goal of becoming manager of a commercial or service company. With this I wish to explain how, besides following a fulltime study, I also had a fulltime job, which allowed me to pay for my living expenditures and tuition. This did not interfere with my responsible and appropriate following of my courses, on the contrary it took me a step closer to my goal then, obtaining some experience in work while still developing my theoretical education.

In my years of high-school I took English language courses as part of each yearly academic program, improving it by means of private courses taken during the weekends. In my country unfortunately, it is not so easy to have access to a foreign language education, especially for financial reasons. That is why it was, and still is, of my great interest to have international projection, and to achieve this, improving my English is not an option anymore but a goal and a need in my life.

I have been living in *** with my Dutch partner for one and a half year now. Since arriving here I made it an immediate goal for me to learn the Dutch language. With this I knew I could adapt more easily, get a job and have the possibility of conducting studies in another language. I have accomplished this in a great deal, just as well as everything I focus on. To say that in such a short time I have a Level 4 in Dutch makes me feel proud since this is not an easy language to learn and is not comparable to English or Spanish that are the two other languages I speak.

My previous studies, working experience and deep interest in the administration and business areas, my will to deepen my knowledge in an international environment in order to achieve my goals, as well as my easiness to integrate, socialize and interact with people from other cultures, make me feel a good candidate to follow the International Business Bachelor Program. All of my motives paired with the multicultural ambiance, the quality and the well-known international reputation of *** University makes me being admitted for the Bachelor program, one of my dreams and another goal to pursue in my life.

Thanking you in advance for your interest and time, I hope to receive further notice on the result of my evaluation as a candidate for your study program.

Yours faithfully,

Andrea

Dear Sir/Madam,

I write to express my interest in enrolling on the International Business Bachelor Program 2005-2006.

I spent most of my life in my home town, ***, Colombia and undertook all my studies there. I undertook 4 years of the Business Administration Bachelor Program in a major University in my region. I enclose copies of the corresponding certificates and description of the subjects studied during that time. I hope that this will help you to assess which year of study it would be appropriate for me to enroll on.

I chose the Business Administration track because I have always had affinity and interest in business management. At 18 I started working in the front desk and reception areas of big companies, which motivated me to keep studying in order to achieve promotion and further my career aim, which is to become a manager of a commercial or service company.

I worked full time to enable me to pay for my living expenses and tuition. Despite this full time job, I maintained a responsible attitude and was able to undertake my full time studies. Whilst this was hard work, I feel that I benefited greatly because I was able to develop both my theoretical education and my practical skills simultaneously.

During High School, I took English Language courses for 3 years, and improved my skills by means of private courses taken during the weekends. Unfortunately, in Columbia foreign language tuition can be difficult to access, and is very expensive. Nevertheless I maintain my interest in learning languages, and wish to undertake some international travel and study. It is essential for me to improve my English, which is no longer simply an interest but a necessity if I am to achieve my aims.

I have been living in *** with my Dutch partner for one and a half years. On arriving here, I made it an immediate goal to learn the Dutch language. This would help me adapt more easily, get a job, and have the possibility of undertaking studies in another language. I am proud that in such a short time I have achieved Level 4 in Dutch, as it is not an easy language to learn. It is quite different from English or Spanish, the two other languages I speak.

I am a dynamic and enthusiastic 27 year-old woman, proud of my nationality, and happy to be in Holland. I believe that I am a good candidate to follow the International Business Bachelor Program. I have previous work experience in this area, and 4 years of full time study. I have a deep interest in administration and business, and a determination to further my knowledge in an international environment. I have good communication skills, and am able to readily integrate, socialize and interact with people from other cultures.

I wish to pursue my goal at *** University because of its famous international reputation, quality of teaching and multicultural ambience.

Thank you for your interest and time. I hope I may look forward to receiving further notice from you on the result of my evaluation as a candidate for your study program.

*** If you are working at present, it might be useful to say a little about this.

*** Do you have any hobbies, skills, outside interests? You could perhaps think about putting a few in

Hallo Abbie!! Thank you very much for your help! I really appreciate it. That was great and I just got it in time because this afternoon of tomorrow morning (maximum)I have to send it.

Concerning your advice, I want to tell you that I'm not working now but before I came to Holland I worked two years as Assistant of Regional Management of an important health-industry Spanish company located in Colombia. Maybe that could be relevant.

My hobbies: Painting (I'm very creative doing that), dancing, volleyball and Biking. I would like you help me to put this in the proper paragraph, PLEASE.!

Thanks in advance!!

Andrea.
