Some points to note when writing a study leave letter
When writing a study leave letter, it is important to understand the policy of your company about study leaves. Do not apply for study leave for longer than the stipulated period unless you have received some form of approval from the management.
I would suggest that you present your study leave letter at the appropriate time. Do not apply when it is too early to determine whether you will get the admission or not. At the same time, do not wait until it is too late for the management to provide you with a letter especially if you would be needing it for your visa interview. If your study is outside the country, you will need this formal response as one of your supporting documents as you apply for a study permit.
