    Formal e-mail to a university, is it correct?

    Hi! So I need to write an e-mail to some universities asking the entry requirements for international students, I wrote this but I don't know if I should correct some things. I'd really appreciate any help with this. This is the e-mail:

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I am writing you to request more information about your Engineering course at ____ University. I am really interested in this course and I would love to apply for it in your remarkable university in 2014.

    I’m currently studying 1 de Bachillerato in Spain so firstly I would like to ask you about this qualification: could you please indicate if the Spanish Bachillerato is one of your accepted qualifications? If so, I would be grateful if you could indicate the academic entry requirements of _____ University for the Spanish students as well.

    Secondly, I would greatly appreciate some information about the English Language Requirements for EU Applicants from a non English speaking country. I also would like to ask the following question: would I be classed as a home/EU student or international student for fees purposes?

    Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter. I look forward to receiving your response.

    Yours faithfully,


    Thank you so much in advance!

    I need to get in contact with several universities to obtain some information about BA "top up" courses in Graphic Design. I have been rejected for Camberwell so need to try other options. I would extremely appreciate that you guys aware me about any correction that need to be done in the below mail. Many thanks in advance!

    To whom it may concern

    Request for BA (Hons) for Graphic & Media Design (top up)

    I am currently a second year student at Camberwell College of Arts, doing my final year in Fda Graphic Design. I am interested in your BA (Hons) in Graphic & Media Design (top up) program.
