How to get Acceptance Letter from Professors 2020:
Most of the students complain that they are contacting to Professors to get Acceptance Letter. But in most of the cases they don’t even get a response. In this article we are going to discuss the Effective Way to Contact Professor form any University. You just need to follow these simple instructions to Reach out the Professor.
Let’s Get Started
Starting with the Subject line
Here you need to think precisely. Do not try writing in general words and in a non-professional way such as Request to read email, master program, PhD program etc.
Always write the subject of your email in simple 4 to 5 words
Remember, subject line is the only thing that the professors will first look on. If you want him or her to open your entire email, you need to impress him with the subject line first.
Let me show you, how you can do that!
You can write simply as Request for Internship supervision! See. How catchy is it! It’s precise and self-explanatory.
Now coming to the Body of your email. How would you start an email effectively yet respectful? Think of this; is he your colleague or a friend??? Of course not… Then stop writing directly with name. For example: Hi Paulina or Hi George. Also, do not write in a childish way such as Respected Sir, Dear Sir, and Respected Madam. This would make them think that you are copying and pasting one general email to hundreds of professors.
Always give proper title to the respective person, e.g. Dr. Joseph This way he would know that you are a serious student who is not sending bundles of emails to everyone.
Keep your email precise 250 or less words are more than enough. Remember that professors have many things to do so they do not bother to read an email that is written like an essay. Split these words into 3 paragraphs.
Starting with the first introductory para. Introduce yourself in a professional way.
Tip 1: here is to think for a moment that you are a professional researcher in a big institute. This will help you write in a professional way.
Tip 2: state your goal. After introducing yourself, instantly tell the person why is he reading your email? What do you want from him? E.g. you want an opportunity to do research with him. This way he would already have an idea right before going into the explanation of your talent.
Tip 3: do NOT explain your entire biography. Remember the nature of position you are applying for. Therefore, stick to that and explain only those achievements that will help you stand out from the rest.
Tip 4: state if you have IELTS or TOFEL results. Even if you don’t have the results before hand, tell him that you are planning to take the test in coming days. After reading until here, you have already caught the attention of the professor.
Now coming to the second paragraph. How you find the project interesting? How you reach out to him?
Here you need to write in a way that the respective person would believe that you actually went to his entire profile and did some research on his work. Because they already know that students randomly send emails asking for research positions to everyone. So my tip here is to tell him that you truly worked through his profile and liked his work.
The third and the last paragraph is very important. Closing paragraph should explain what you will bring to his lab or institute. My tip here is to link your CV to his profile. This way he would seriously consider you as a candidate.
At the end, tell him that you will be waiting for his response. Give regards and state your name at the end.
That’s it! You see, there is not rocket science behind writing emails to the professors.
Just be concise, short and to the point and you are good to go.
