Hello,

I need help with motivation letter for student exchange programme.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am applying for a student exchange program hosted at University of Economics Prague, Radka Jourova. Basic information about this programme I found out at my faculty in a student exchange department.

I was born in Podgorica, Montenegro in 1984. and lived there ever since. During my elementary and highschool education I finished numerous english courses, mostly hosted at Institute for foreign languages of Montenegro, as well as many computer courses. In 1998. and 2000. I attended Summer english courses in Winchester and Ramsgate, England. Therefore, I consider my english skills very high and myself being able to take studies in english. In 2002. I applied for Economics faculty at University of Montenegro and studied there ever since. At the moment, I am on a final year of studies with a total average grade of 9.17 and 9.50 on previous year. Also, during the summers of 2004. and 2005. I have been working in a small montenegrin trading company as an assistant of an import and export manager, therefore learning basics of international trade.

Attending a semester at your faculty would provide me with a great experience about how your economy works and introduce me to main aspects of bussines and education in your country. Also, sharing experience with other students would be very usefull in improving my communication skills. Experience and knowlege acquired at foreign university would prove to be very helpfull in finding a job upon returning to my country.

I am looking forward to receiving the opportunity to study at your university and to make a great contribution to your community.

Sincerely yours,

Milos Golubovic

Hi Milos, welcome to the forum. Your letter is pretty good and I've just tidied up some of the details for you. You seem to be making the same few mistakes all the time, but overall you English is good, so try to work on these particular problems. You need to learn when to use capital letters, when to use the word 'the', and not to put a full stop after every year date.

Hi Milos,

I am currently writing my own motivation letter for an exchange and I was looking for some examples when I found yours! Could you let me know whether or not they picked you for the exchange?

Have a happy new year,
