    I am writing to request more information about your Arts and Science studies courses.

    I am ____ , from Egypt, and I am planning to study Political Science next year at your university. I would be really happy very grateful if you could/would help me out and let me know a little bit about the English requirements, admission procedure and scholarships in your university, especially the Lester B Pearson scholarship. Thanks in advance.

    Yours sincerely/Yours faithfully
    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections above. Don't start a formal letter with "Greetings". If you know the name of the person you're writing to, use "Dear" and follow it with their title and surname. If you do that, end the letter with "Yours sincerely". If you don't know their name, start with either "Dear Sir/Madam" or "To whom it may concern" and end with "Yours faithfully".

    Remember to capitalise the word "I" (first person singular) and all proper nouns.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
