    Default The use of qualifications when signing a formal letter

    Hello

    I have recently completed my second batchelors degree and am unsure how to show this as part of my formal letter signature. I am obviously proud of these achievements and would like to show them off!!

    The first degree is a BA (Hons.) in Accountancy, and the second is a BSc (Hons.) in Quantity Surveying.

    Thank you in advance for your advice.

    Regards

    Larry Moore

    Welcome to the forum, Larry.

    Not many people in Britain these days sign their letters using post-nominals with their signatures. If you wish to do so, however, you could put:

    Larry Moore BA BSc
    or:
    Larry Moore, BA (Hons), BSc (Hons)

    On my business card in the Czech Republic, I give my highest-level degree, because that is expected here. I don't use post-nominals in Britain.
