    Post MOTIVATION LETTER FOR EXCHANGE PROGRAMME

    Hey guys,

    could you please help me with my motivation letter for exchange programme? Here is what I wrote:

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    With this letter I would love to express my strong motivation for attending the first semester in 2020 at University of XY.

    My name is XY and currently I am studying Masterís degree programme in the Faculty of Arts, XY University in XY. I have chosen Psychology as my major, since I have developed strong interest in this field, especially in developmental psychology and child clinical psychology. In addition, I am studying Bachelorís degree programme in Special education in the Faculty of Education, XY University. I successfully wrote and defended my bachelorís thesis about a stress profile in parents of children with autism spectrum disorder. During my studies I have done many internships and volunteering activities, where I gained a great deal of valuable experience.

    I would honour the opportunity to study one semester at your university, mainly because it would mean a lot for my professional and personal life. One of the reasons I chose University of XY is the location in XY, which has been my dream for many years. I am particularly interested in the richness of its culture and nature. Furthermore, the university offers both outstanding academic and student experience. Its Psychology programme is on a very high level. I believe that one semester at your university will improve not only my psychology knowledge but also my English language skills. I have been studying English since age of eight and since age of fifteen I have spent my summer holidays abroad attending English language courses in England and Malta or travelling around the world.

    Finally, I am convinced that study abroad programme is the opportunity of a lifetime as it is excellent opportunity to acquire knowledge, meet various groups of young people, experience another culture first-hand and see one of the worldís most beautiful countries. Living and studying in a foreign country can broaden my horizons and it can be very exciting, fun and valuable for both professional life and overall personal development.

    Thank you for taking the time to consider my application. I am looking forward to hearing from you.


    Yours faithfully,

    Hi there! Motivation letter plays very important role in seeking job, but not everybody knows it! Hopefully now almost every service of vacancies offers some usefull tips for writing it correctly. I use them. Gosh, not so long time ago I've had serious problems with my essay work about music (short terms and lacking good ideas). I was even told by my friends to use professional help (something like [URL removed] .. you know what I'm saying, there are a lot of sites like this), 'cause I was completely stressed out! But then I've pulled myself toghether and overcame this stressful moment! So my moral is even when you don't feel good enough to do something, just try to relax, to divert attention for short moment and catch motivation.. to write motivation letter! (sorry for tautology)

    Learners, please note that Nicolle's original post contained a link to a cheating site. We do not allow such links and we certainly do not condone their use. The only reason I did not delete the entire post is so that all of you can learn from the multiple corrections I have made above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
