A good education is a major stepping stone for employees to move up in an organization. In some cases individuals start working before they complete their higher studies. If they wish to further pursue their education, they either need to quit their job or study part time. However, leaving a job completely might not be feasible and studying part time can increase the length of the degree program. This can e resolved by taking a study leave, after which you can rejoin your company. If you work in an organization that has a study leave policy, then you should contact your HR department to get more details. Here is a sample study leave letter you can use when you are ready to apply for an educational absence from work.

On my return I hope to have gained knowledge about many new aspects of doing business. This should help me promote the company’s business interests in many new ways to a more diverse group of clients. I thank you in advance for providing me an opportunity to further my studies and professional development.

Following my admission at the London School of Economics, I am applying for a study leave as per our company policy. I have selected a four year undergraduate program which commences on September 2009 and will be completed on May 2013.
I have included a copy of the admissions letter to the BBA program along with the scholarship letter that the university issued me. This is for the company record of my employment.
I will be very thankful if my application will be considered because I feel a degree in Business Administration will help me do my tasks better at the company.
