    I think you must understand that in this forum and in your case we do not prepare letters, homework etc. Rather, and again in your case, you should prepare the complete letter the best that you can. Responders understand that persons like you are looking for help. Don't worry about mistakes. You have made a good start with the information already posted. Put it all together in the form of a letter and I'm sure you will receive one or more responses.

    Re: Please need a letter, not able to join this year?

    I would like to thank you very much for giving the opportunity to start the course at Strathclyde. I greatly appreciate your help.
    As you may know, I have been expecting a certain delay in attending the course on time due to finalising necessary sponsorship award documents as well as the visa entry to the UK. while this absence can be justifiable, it is nonetheless becoming great concern for me and whether I shall be allowed to start at such late time. As I am unable to obtain the required award document to enrol , It is with regret that I have to drop the course this year, hoping you would give me the opportunity to make a fresh start next year.
    I would like to thank you again for taking the time to consider my application and I do apologize for any inconvenience I caused .
    Sincerely.
