Dear ____________,

Answer –

Dear Sam,

I’m just writing to tell you some details about the course I studied at my university, which you’re thinking of pursuing.

As you know, I studied electrical engineering at my uni and it’s a four-year-long course. We were taught the basic as well as advanced-level concepts, both theoretically and practically. The main objective of this course is to make students familiar with various concepts of Physics, Chemistry and Maths so that when we go and work in the field, we don’t feel out of place.

I would suggest that you choose the same university that I opted for because it has some of the best professors in the country. The professors are super helpful and they don’t mind going the extra mile to help out the students who are struggling to understand the concepts. Moreover, the practical labs have state-of-the-art equipment that would help you to learn a lot during your studies.

You can apply to this university by logging in on their website, and from there you can easily find the apply tab. Here, you just have to fill in the form and pay the application fee online. Another way to get enrolled is to go there in person and buy, fill and submit the university prospectus to the admissions office.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

All the best,
