    motivation letter for university

    Hello! I am going to transfer to another university and I am asked to write a motivation letter. I do not know how to do it in the right way, so I need someone to check my letter and recommend how to make it better. Thank you!



    I am a first-year student of Finance and Banking at the XXX. I would like to transfer from my university to XXXXX after the end of this academic year.
    At the university and even in high school I had many academic achievements. I have participated in a lot of scientific conferences and competitions and always had very good results. This year I wrote a work about business problems in Ukraine, American philosophy and about some mathematics problems. As you can see, I have many goals in different fields of knowledge.
    I have some international experience of communication because of studying in an international school, also I can speak several languages. I have been studying French for a year and now I have a strong A2 level. I speak English, Ukrainian and Russian easily. I am very interested in studying Polish because I have Polish roots and I like the culture of this country. I chose the XXXXX for applying because I believe that it is the best choice I could do. XXXXX seems magnificent to me and I am sure that it will help me to find even more possibilities than I could ever have. I like the atmosphere XXXXX has and I am sure that there is no university that is homelier in the whole Western Europe.
    I see myself as an open-minded person who can work alone as well as a part of the team. I always have my own opinion I do not change, so I am the person everybody can trust. It is important to me to do as much as I can and never fail, no matter what. When it comes to do something important or to organize different events, I am a very reliable student. I enjoy being a part of a team and doing something that helps others.
    I chose finance because I saw how many problems my country had because of lack of economic knowledge during the last years and I have always wanted my country to get economic independence and power. I really love Ukraine and want to get the best education possible in order to return home after my studies and to help my people to became an important part of the EU.
    I am looking forward to receiving Your response!
    Sincerely, XXXXXX

    Re: motivation letter for university

    Teechar, I would like to encourage people to do more of their own work. Also, there are plenty of letters here (with corrections). People can read them and learn that way. Instead of doing that they prefer to get free help. I suggest that instead of that we let them help themselves more from now on.
