To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to express my interest in applying for the Honour's Degree Program in environmental science at the University of Cape Town.
I was graduated from the university of Khartoum and awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science (honour) in Geology, (second class, division one), in Sudan on the year 2010.
During my university education, I started paying more attention to environmental geology, and environmental science in general, and I got Excellent and very good marks in some important and relevant courses such as Environmental Geology, Remote Sensing and GIS, as well as Principles of Ecology.
in my honor year, my graduation project was about a study of sedimentary properties of the upper Shandi formation (located on the north of Khartoum) I had the opportunity to study the area geologically ,and of course study the environment in general including the depositional environments and the interaction between the creatures through the time , supporting the field work with the laboratory analyzing of the Previously collected samples ,I have Concluded to a result of knowing the paliodepositional environment and the Palioclimate .
After graduation and as Sudanese citizen I had to work one year of civil service, I spent it at The Khartoum state water corporation, at the well unit, and then I got the chance to do training course in the field of chemical analyzing of manilas at the Research and industrial counseling center (Sudan), finally I took a short course at Estidama center for energy and mining studies in the field of well drilling(Sudan), all the practical experience helped me developing on professional and personal level by enhancing my computer skills, written and oral communication skills, as well as team working skills.
I believe that the field of environmental science is very interesting and challenging in general and specifically in my country as there are not many specialists as it should be to support the society needs.
I am under the consideration that, this honor's program will contribute enormously to my academic researches and future career plans, and I am totally dedicated and determinate to continue to masters and PhDs.
At the end I believe that the opportunity to join the University of Cape Town will be a great experience and life changing, And I am aware of the highly competitiveness of this honour's program, but I am confident that I have the ability, and motivation to exceed the requirements and I will do my best to excel.
Thank you very much for your time and for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.
