    Dear sir,
    I was more than pleased when I received your response on my request about joining postgraduate education in your honorable university.
    Iam glad to resend the registration form after filling it in, with my CV and Cover letter attached to it.
    Hope you accept my resignation for the winter semester of 2019 and to to send me the approval at my address shown above, so I can be able to check with the embassy to get the entry visa.
