semester. I am currently studying for an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering here at the University of Manchester. I have just started my second year of studies at the university. I recently applied for an internship at a prestigious engineering company by the name of Patroclus Engineering and was lucky enough to be accepted.
is truly an excellent opportunity for me to learn a great deal about the practical application of Chemical Engineering. Unfortunately,
due to
the fact that the internship will take place during the semester. I have to apply for a week of leave. I would really appreciate it if you could provide me with a letter approving
time off. If I could show that letter to my professors, it would be extremely helpful in persuading them to accept my request. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Yours Sincerely, Shakir Ali
