Dear Sir or Madam,
I am an international applicant applying for your program and have several questions about the financial support documentation.
Is a financial support letter from my sponsor sufficient? Is a statement from bank stating how much fund is available required?
I notice that applicants could upload a financial support letter online in the application system. Do I need to mail a paper version to you?
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
In answer to your questions:
1. Yes, the letter from your sponsor uploaded to your online application is sufficient. The document is only for information and not official document is needed. So there is no need to submit bank statements or any other official documents.
2. No, you don’t have to mail a paper version of the support letter.
Feel free to contact me again if you have additional questions.
