I am an overseas student in the department of Natural Science. I am writing this letter to request a week off as I have a medical appointment.
My name is Johnson and my Student ID is T 5493. This is my second semester, and I have been attending the course regularly without fail. Yesterday, I had an appointment with a dentist as I had severe tooth pain. After the investigation, she informed me that I have tooth decay and advised a root canal. She posted the procedure 11 am, this Monday. She also advised me that I have to take a week’s rest.
It would be appreciated if you would give me permission to be absent for the period and stay in the hostel room. I assure that I can join the class by the next Monday and report before the department head.
I look forward to hearing from you.
