Dear Sir,

I hope that you are well.

I am planning to apply for the (name of specific program etc.) this coming (July/autumn, in 6 months etc.) and I was wondering if you might be able to help me by writing a letter of recommendation? I would really appreciate your input and professionalism.

I am particularly interested in the (subject matter of the course/programme) aspect of the (programme/course), this is an area which I feel I can use my already thorough years of study background attained with you, to their fullest and evolve further for the future.

Your courses gave me a wonderful foundation; I enjoyed the study and feel confident to take these interests and talents further. You encouraged me to explore my passions and this has led me to want to further develop this area for me.

Please find enclosed a list of my academic experience, most of which you are already up to date with, but I have also enclosed my work experience as of late. These periods of work experience I have done were chosen specifically in order to further my practical knowledge in the field. I felt that this was important and necessary for me to gain personal confidence and also to really see if this was something.

I wanted to pursue in life. They were wonderful experiences for me and I am only looking forward to what the future can bring.

Please let me know if this is something that you would be willing to help me with. If so, I believe that you may need my resume together with my accompanying cover letter as well as any further documentation that you feel might be good to include.

I await eagerly your thoughts and response.
