Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to apply for a place on the Archaeology MA course which commences this September at Macbriney university. I am 25 years old and I have completed a Bachelor's degree in Archaeology at Drakeham University, where I received first class honours. Prior to this I was a pupil at Berkeley Comprehensive, where I obtained 9 GCSEs and three A levels in History, Geography and Latin. Since the completion of my BA I have spent two years working as assistant archaeologist on a site in Egypt. During this expedition I have assisted in the discovery of several interesting artifacts. This 4 work was extremely enjoyable and I am now anxious to specialise by gaining further qualifications before embarking on my chosen career in this field. I enclose a detailed curriculum vitae in the hope that you will consider my application for entry. I look forward to receiving your response in the near future.
Yours faithfully, Johnny Mcenzie.
