Model Answer:

Dear Patrick,

I am so glad to learn that you have finally decided to complete your Master’s degree in Biology at the University of Toronto. I think that you are also going to enjoy your time, just as I did, at Canada’s one of the best universities for studying Science.

But, before anything else, let me share some details about the course so that you can fully prepare yourself for the challenges of studying Biology at the University of Toronto. The programme is structured to last for 24 months, and during this time, you are required to complete about 40-45 credit hours. Please apply before March/April if you really want to get all the classes at your preferred schedule. Just to inform you, out of these 40-45 credit hours, approximately 32 hours will be the core subjects.

Please also expect to do some extensive research works, which sometimes can be really challenging, at the laboratory in order to gain some valuable practical experience. But, don’t worry about it since the faculty members are very helpful and friendly. I feel great about completing this course from this university and I am quite positive that you will also feel the same.

Just visit their website, which is www.utoronto.ca, and it will guide you all the way about how to apply. In case, you do not understand anything, just let me know.

Wishing you all the best. Take care.

Warm wishes,
