如何寫信給大學詢問課程(附信件範例)

Also in: 简中 (简中)

選擇合適大學課程的時候,學生可能會因為不同原因需要跟學校電話或email聯繫。如果信件寫得方式不對,不只會讓對方覺得沒禮貌,如果有特殊請求可能還會被拒絕。我們來跟大家分寫信件需要的內容,讓學生跟學校溝通時可以更專業!


誰可以寫信給學校

只有學生可以寫信給大學!如果寄件人是家長、親戚、或顧問,會讓美國大學覺得學生很不成熟,是一個媽寶。高中生已經有能力跟責任要為自己負責了,所以這封信必須是學生自己寫。


什麼情況要寫信給大學

報名一堂課之前,你可能會有下面這些原因須要寫信給學校:

  1. 大學官網上的資訊不完整,你想了解一堂課程的資料
  2. 你想詢問你能不能(或有沒資格)上一堂課
  3. 你有特殊情況(如無法參與其中一週的課程)希望了解你是否還是能上
  4. 你有特殊請求,希望得到對方同意
  5. 你有其他問題想問學校或教授
