Letter Sample #149 – You are planning to get enrolled in a diploma course

GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 149

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are planning to get enrolled in a diploma course offered by a college in a foreign country. You would like to get some information about the course.

Write a letter to the admission officer of the college. In your letter: 

  • state your interest in the course
  • ask what the course covers and the possible cost to complete it
  • ask what type of accommodation the college will offer for the students of this course

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter because I am planning to get enrolled in a diploma course in Interior Design which is supposed to start the next fall semester. I am particularly interested in this diploma course, offered by your college, mainly because your college has a reputation for introducing the latest trends and technologies in the field of interior design.

Now, even though I already know about a tentative starting date of this diploma course, I do not know exactly how long this course would continue or how many subjects or credit hours I would need to complete before being awarded this diploma. Besides, I also have very little idea about how much I would need to spend to complete this diploma in due time. So some information regarding the cost would also be highly appreciated.

Finally, I would also love to learn about the accommodation facilities, and the associated costs, at your college for students like us who will attend this diploma course from the fall semester. As a foreign student, I would prefer to stay at the college hostel.

I would request you to send me the information at your convenience.

Yours faithfully,

Demetri Nicholas
