It is always a good idea to enclose a covering letter with your student visa application. Although some embassies and consulates do not require a covering letter because they have their pre-printed visa application forms along with supplementary information forms but the significance of a cover letter for student visa application is always imperative. Look at the following sample in order to make your own covering letter.
