Letter of Intent

Letter of Intent

The letter of intent written to universities for studying abroad and to consulates for obtaining a visa is a personal statement detailing the reasons for choosing a specific program or country, educational and professional goals, how to achieve these goals, and why that institution or country is the most suitable place to achieve these goals. This letter combines the candidate’s past experiences, achievements, and future plans, explaining how the applied program or visa will contribute to the candidate and how the candidate will add value to the program or community.

How Should a Letter of Intent Be Written?

This guide guides you while preparing your letter of intent for your school and visa applications. When writing your letter, express it in a sincere and formal language and in an original way. Remember that the Australian visa system scans for plagiarism with special software; Originality will determine the success of your application. Therefore, you must write in your unique style.

Using clear and concise expressions that comply with the spelling rules will serve the purpose of your letter. Overly complex and long sentences can cause semantic shifts and make the translation process difficult.
