Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to apply for the Bachelor‘s Degree program in International Logistics and Economics at the XXX starting in XXX in which I am very interested.
Currently I am living in XXXwhere I am going to pass my A-Levels at the XXX in XXX. About myself I can say that I am a Team player who loves to collaborate with other people. I've developed these skills while I was playing in a soccer team for about six years. Besides these skills I've learned a lot about communication, reliability and flexibility at my current work. My strengths are definitely my organisational skills and that I am very open-minded.
As long as I can remember I've been interested in logistical processes and the economy in general. That is why, when I had to choose the direction in which to I may specialize at school, I selected the Economics. In my opinion my choice was the right decision and I don't regret it. Furthermore I would like to learn more about logistics since I always wondered myself how it is possible to plan warehousing and the delivery of goods at the lowest cost and most efficient as possible.
I want to study abroad because I like to meet new challenges in life and to manhandle them. I also enjoy learning about foreign cultures and to come upon people from various countries. The main reason why I want to study at the XXX is that many of the courses offered are unique for me, because there is no equivalent in Germany. Another aspect that has convinced me to study at the XXX, is that this program gives me the chance to work on real-life projects. The fact that the XXX is the best large University of Applied Science in XXX according to XXX has strengthened my determination.
My future plan is to start my career in an international company after I've graduated from the XXX and maybe even to stay in the Netherlands. I would like to work in the international logistics industry and to incorporate my own company one day. It would be great if I could achieve my future goals based on the knowledge which I will acquire at the XXX.
Thank you very much for considering my application. I look forward to your positive response.

Please don't chase answers after only a few hours. You posted it at nearly midnight (in the UK) and are chasing it at 9am. Yesterday was Sunday when quite a lot of people don't go on the site anyway and today is the big "back to work" day after the Christmas/New Year break. We are all volunteers - we work on the site as and when we can. Be patient.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I can understand impatience. However, there are about a million of these things in this folder already. (Really. A million. Check it out. (OK. Not really. ))
(Maybe I'll look at this some more later.)
OK, if I am going to pretend to be interested I am going to have to charge more.
I had always wanted to learn logistics.
I want to study abroad because I like learning about different cultures and meeting people from different countries.
I want to study at XXX because they offer courses there that I can't find anywhere else.
You don't have to say the same things over and over and over. (Of course, you can if you want to.)
(I bet you're going to have a question or two.)
