Motivation letter sample for a Bachelor of Computer Science application

Since many of you have asked us to give them a sample of an undergraduate motivation letter for University admission to an IT program, we have prepared one for Bachelor studies in Computer Science. Feel free to use it, or rephrase it. Good luck.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to apply for the Bachelor program in Computer Science and Engineering, in which I am very interested. The degree from one of the most prestigious, superior and respected universities is my chance to enrich my knowledge and professionally outgrowth. Through this motivation letter, I would like to state my candidacy for enrolment in this undergraduate program.

In June 2017, I have finished my high school in Berlin in Germany and received the High school Diploma. In high school I have majored in the natural sciences. During the course of my studies I have took the most advanced courses in mathematics, chemistry and physics available in order to challenge myself and make sure that I will be well prepared for University. Even though sometimes it was hard to follow this combination of courses, due to really hard workload, I have given my best to obtain good grades thanks to my passion, commitment and hard work.

My interest in programing and computers began during my primary school when I first came into contact with computer coding which is used to create the website. I was totally fascinated with the programing, and incented to start working on small projects of my own, creating other websites, mostly simple ones. I have followed online tutorials to solve the problems I have encountered on my way. It was really interesting and empowering to create something new, from the scratch.


Thanks to the summer internship I have completed with the well-known automotive company. I have worked there in the IT division, and thanks to my internship mentor I have learned about SQL for the first time. During first week of my internship I have learned the basics of the SQL and how to create the database. This experience was extremely important for my professional development because knowledge of SQL is essential for a work of one computer expert.

Throughout my schooling I have always participated in the opportunities that would enhance my leadership and team working skills. For example I took part in the organization of International Evening in my school. After the first year, I was elected to be a team leader in charge of organizing the participants and technical manager who delegated tasks for the duration of the events. Thanks to this experience I have learned that it is very important to take initiative whilst working in a team, but also that, as a leader, you must not expect the rest of the team to do all the work on their own.

Studying at University of Cambridge would be an excellent platform to build the synergies of my previous knowledge and competence I will gain through studying on the program for computer science and engineering. Moreover I believe that Cambridge diploma will open me many new opportunities in life and I am eager to undertake this challenge.

In conclusion, I would like to reconfirm that I am eager to gain new experiences, improve my skills and
Broaden my understanding of the dynamic IT world, and I am persuaded that studying in the B.A. in Computer science would contribute to my development as an IT specialist in the best possible way.

Thank you very much for considering my application.

Yours faithfully,

Name Surname
