Dear Visa Officer,

'Why Violent Video Games Shouldn't Be Banned'?

I would like to take this time to express my appreciation to you for taking your time to review my study plan for my re-application for a student visa permit.

I am applying for this student permit as my previous was application was turned down due to reasons that I have addressed in an attached letter. The purpose of this letter is to explain why I chose Canada as my study destination and explain my choice of study.

Pursuing my study in higher education in Ontario, Canada in the Building Construction Technician program at the Algonquin college of applied arts and technology is a chance for me to represent my country at a larger stage and a chance to prove to my family and country that I can climb the ranks and create a legacy for myself

Canada is a great country to pursue education as it is ranked among the best countries to study in, plus it is comparatively cheap hence my choice of study and it is vastly multicultural, thus I would really like to meet people from a vast majority of culture as I can learn new practices and extend my knowledge not only to professional practice but also to social relations.

Thus why I would like to pursue my education in the program I was accepted to in Canada.

My overall education goal is more and more about getting practical knowledge. So after I finish my studies in Canada I would like to come back to my country since I would have the legal age of working and start gaining experience in the field as soon as possible for there would be a multitude of opportunities for me since I am confident of my relations and connections home. If possible I would like to attend workshops and events all around the world to gain more practical knowledge and if possible around a few years into my practice I would love to get a master’s degree from Canada, the US or a good engineering school in Europe and later in life I would love to become an educator and transfer my lifelong practical knowledge to fellow Rwandans and Africans.

The Building Construction Technician program offers a more comprehensive introduction to the construction industry through both a hands-on approach and applied theory, and I would love to benefit from that since I would also have a Canadian diploma which is highly valuable in my home country. Additionally, I would love to attend the program since I would be available for the market in two years ready for my 18th birthday and start benefiting with the hands-on experience I will be gaining all throughout the practice. Finally, none of what is mentioned above is available in my home country hence looking for a good opportunity beyond and benefiting it from it earlier in my career, so the sooner the better.

My country has one public institution of higher learning known as the University of Rwanda and multiple other private institution including two internationally recognized universities. The University of Rwanda offers a multitude of opportunities ranging from three-year business degrees in the school of business and economics to four and five-year computer and engineering degrees in the school of science and technology, together with a multitude of other three, four and five-year bachelor degrees not mentioned it also offers masters degrees for a limited range of courses but very beneficial ones indeed.

There are also a multitude of privately owned institutions which I would preferably not mention for the benefit of your valuable time, instead jump right to the two internationally recognized institutions which are the great African Leadership University Rwanda campus and never the less the great Kepler University these schools offer the benefit of internationally recognized degrees and I have had the privilege to get admitted in both but unfortunately their courses and aspirations do not match my career goal since none of them offer any courses related to the construction industry so I had to drop them. Thus I have produced a little bit of insight into the Rwandan higher education system for more info you can visit the study in Rwanda website.

The very exceptional thing about this diploma program is that even if I come back without necessarily pursuing a degree program I would still have a higher chance of getting employment status than a local engineer due to the high necessity of international expertise. Additionally, I am a well-connected individual and I believe this degree would offer me not only the chance to get employed but the chance to enhance my knowledge early in my career since I would be a very young man entering a career which offers vast opportunities not only in my country but in a vast number of African developing countries.

I have two brothers and two sisters; my oldest sister is a graduate from a US university and is the one who influenced me to apply in Canada and all along down my career path. Both the youngest brother and sister are still very young kindergarten attendees and my very next sibling is just entering high school recently. My mother is the marketing manager in a private sales and marketing company and my father is a senior officer in the Rwandan army now on duty in the UN as a military observer in the UN peace corps.

I have a high school diploma which I obtained at the College Saint Andre located in Rwanda Kigali city in the Nyarugenge County on the KN 135 Street I graduated on the 1st December 2018 in Physics, Chemistry and mathematics, and I did extremely well in my final Advanced level exams hence convincing my parents to fund me for higher education in Canada.

I would like to take the time to express my gratitude towards you again for taking the valuable time to review my study plan for my study permit application and I would like to humbly request for my application to be reconsidered, I am looking forward to an answer from you.
