If your company or employer has a defined study leave policy then you will be asked to submit a request for approval from your supervisors. This request will be meant to initiate the leave process but will also define when you expect to leave and when you plan to return. The letter also gives the employer the idea that you are committed to your job and will return. In some cases, especially with government entities, they might require a bond which states that you will come back after a set number of years and will stay employed with the government for an agreed upon amount of time. If you plan on applying for a study leave, check out how to write a study leave letter guide below.
Start of the letter by stating the complete name and position of the person your sending the letter to. Make sure they are the one that will be making the decision about your leave and include any line mangers whose input is required
Next you need to mention your own name and position in company.
Add the date the letter is delivered to the person it is addressed to.
You need to address the letter to the manager directly. So start of with the proper courtesy title and their last name.
You should get straight to the point and ask for a study leave. Mention the name of the institute you are joining and the dates you expect to be gone.
It is a good idea to attach any documentation you have that proves you are actually going to be studying. Admission letters, scholarship letters and fee receipts are all good proofs.
You should also give further details of the program of study you will be joining. This give more clarity to your request.
