Hi there,

I need to write a formal letter to the Dean of faculty for approval. Meanwhile, i also need my supervisor to sign his approval somewhere on the same piece of letter. He told me to write as:

Prof. ***
Dean
School

Through: Dr. ***
Academic supervisor (he will sign here)

Dear prof. ***

blahblah

yours sincerely

Can someone help me to clarify whether this is the way to write for approvals from different parties. Thank you in advance.
Stevenh,

There probably is no ONE best way to to this. If your "supervisor" suggests a certain method, I would follow it, as he and Dean might have corresponded in this manner in the past.

If I didn't have your supervisors instructions, I would follow one of two different courses of action.

1) Method 1

Prof. ***
Dean
School

Dear prof. ***

blahblah

yours sincerely
Stevenh

This letter (or request) has been approved by my supervisor Dr ***

__________________ __________________
Dr. *** Date (the word "date" should show up under the second set of dashes.)

2) Method 2.

I would simply create an attachment to the letter.

Attachment

I Dr *** am the supervisor of StevenH and I approve his letter (or request).

__________________ __________________
Dr. *** Date

In the letter, I would have one paragraph stating...

I have included my supervisor approval in the enclosed attachment.

Your supervisor's instructions are the simplist. That might the standard protocol that they use.

I hope that helps.

Your question is too open-ended to answer. Your style will be developed over time and unique to you.
