    Help with formal email

    Hi guys. So I basically received an offer from a university and they've sent me an email welcoming me. is this a good reply:
    Dear Madam ....,
    I would really like to start off/commence by showing you the appreciation ou deserve by thanking you for such a great-welcoming email; this only proves how this university is cooperative with its students. I it a pleasure to have received an offer from this university. I am already counting down the days to starting my programme and I am eagerly looking forward to being a part of this university.
    thank you in advance,
    best wishes,

    I think your letter is overdone. All is needed is just a simple reply.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    Acceptance of Offer of a Place in xxxx Course

    Thank you very much for your letter of acceptance into the xxx programme.

    I wish to confirm acceptance of the offer and am eagerly looking forward to starting the course.

    This should be at the top of the post.
    Otherwise, it may be confusing to the OP, and could potentially be taken as part of the reply!
