Dear Sir

RE: Withdrawal from program

I am writing to inform you that I have decided to withdraw from my current program of studies, the Bachelor of Nursing, after one semester. My student identification number is BN39029/2010. I feel that the course is not quite suitable for me, having gone through one semester of coursework and clinical sessions. Also, with a motive of giving suggestions, I think there have to be a lot of changes with respect to the way education is imparted here. Practical and other lab works require proper apparatuses which this place lacks. It is a request to make necessary changes for the students who will still be studying because when we take up the work of imparting education, we have to realise that it’s on our shoulders to give everything as per expectations of people and since it is a big task, I understand it takes time.  Hence, I am informing the university with this letter that I shall not be returning for the winter semester.

Please process my withdrawal application and mail any dues to me as soon as possible to the address given on this letter. Your prompt response would be appreciated. Any inconvenience is regretted.

Thank you.


Yours sincerely,

Jim Richardson
