Sample Answer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Parag Dutta. I had applied for the Master’s in Social Work (MSW) course in your college. Yesterday, I received a letter of acceptance for the same. I am writing to apologize for not being able to start this course immediately and to discuss its future availability.

I am very keen to pursue a Master’s program in Social Work. It would greatly boost my career growth. But, work commitments have interrupted my plan of studies. I have been working with a Non-governmental Organization for the past 3 years.  Recently, we have started an overseas project. I am a member of the team and I have to go to Sri Lanka for at least 6 months.

Since this course starts in July and I am supposed to leave for Sri Lanka in the first week of August, it is not feasible for me to start it right now. Anyway, please let me know if I could join it after February, 2018 as I will be back by then.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
Parag Dutta
