To the Visa Officer
High Commission of Canada
My name is XXXX and I am an Indian citizen applying for a student permit for the pursuit of a Master’s Degree in Canada. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Business in 2011. Now, I hope very much to earn my Master’s Degree in Business Management and International Business at XXXX College. Towards this end, I sat for the IELTS exam on the 4th of December 2020, earning an overall score band of 7.0 (Listening - 6.5, Reading - 6, Writing - 7, Speaking - 8).
Born into a Christian family and raised in the south of India, my mother was a school teacher who placed a high priority on education. Although she passed away in 2001 in a traffic accident, her spirit will always continue to drive me forward in my own quest for excellence in Education. After she left us, I made a vow that I would do everything that I could to honor her dreams, hard work, and legacy, by going to graduate school and earning an advanced degree in my field, International Business. I see international business collaboration across borders as our best hope for global peace, and sustainable development, successfully meeting the many profound challenges faced by humankind today.
Now, several years after having finished my undergraduate studies, I am professionally and economically established and I can afford to pay for my higher studies. I also have the full support of my family and I am thus very excited about the prospect of getting started with my full immersion experience in finance, business set ups, and operations. My father, who I also lost tragically in 2019, was a businessman and he will always be my foremost role model, his sense of responsibility and dedication to innovation in particular. Going on to lose an uncle the following year, 2020, impressed upon me still further the precious character of life and enhanced my drive to go as far as I possibly can professionally speaking.
After finishing my undergraduate studies, I moved to Abu Dhabi (UAE) to work as an account throughout 2012 and in 2013. In 2014, I was promoted to the position of ¨Senior Accountant¨. I now have 8 years of experience in various business fields in the global marketplace and the full embrace of multicultural environments. I am someone who looks for constant improvement in my skills, knowledge and standard of living and I now want very much to earn a Master’s Degree at a cutting-edge university so that I will be able to move into top management. As a graduate student in International Business Management, I especially look forward to learning all that I can about how business operates globally, with standard operating procedures, especially with respect to finance, marketing, organizational behavior, International trade and transport etc.
XXXX College is my first choice among Master’s programs due to its high standards and success rate along with a focus on real-world scenarios. I appreciate the fact that Canada is admired the world over for its educational standards. I also appreciate the fact that Canada is a safe, multicultural country where I am confident that I will be able to absorb a great deal, so that I will have much to contribute to my home country once I return home to India to build a new home base for global operations.
I hope I can have the profound privilege of bringing my all to your program at Lambton College, building relationships of enduring trust with my colleagues that will last a lifetime. I look forward to further developing my knowledge and to taking full advantage of an especially rich learning environment.
Thank you for considering my application.
