Sample resignation letter going back to school

A sample resignation letter if you are going back to school and don’t really know how to let your employer know about your decision for resigning your job as a school teacher, secretary, a restaurant, working as a nurse at a hospital, or any other job role, then take a look at the samples we have compiled so you can get an idea of how it is written (the format).

Your main reason why you have decided to write your resignation letter could be pursuing further studies and invest in your education, but it could be also that you found a new job opportunity with or without an increment in your salary, or simply having a family issue you need to attend and the letters we will present can also be adapted for any of the reasons we have mentioned.

However, you may need to check with your employer the notice period if you are thinking about resigning before the end of the year. 

Most employers require a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice but others may ask for a one month notice, six-week notice, four-week notice, or 1 week.

Even though some employers are aware employees need to resign on short notice or with an immediate effect.

Writing a good resignation letter can guarantee to leave in good terms and even getting a good reference from your boss or a colleague for future employment opportunities.

I am grateful that you considered me fit for my current job position. I have learned a lot during my stay here. However, a time has come that I feel I should quit the job and go back to school. I am convinced that going for further studies will position me as a better employee.

Josephine Lau

Director, Human Resources

Acme Corporation

123 Business Rd.

Business City, NY 54321

Dear Ms. Lau,

I have had to make the difficult decision that I cannot continue to work as an assistant while I return to school full time to earn my bachelor’s degree. It would not be fair to you, as my employer, nor to my family or my studies.

Consequently, this is my letter of resignation. I plan to work until September 15, 2018. This fulfills my two weeks’ notice and allows me to concentrate on school full time when the semester begins.

Working at Acme Corporation has provided me with many opportunities to develop my skills and career. I will miss my coworkers a great deal upon my return to school. I trust that I have contributed to the company’s success through my efforts.

I hope that I am leaving on positive terms and that I may be in touch in the future. While circumstances will change over the next two years while I complete my degree, and the future is impossible to predict, [Optional:] If all works out, I will plan to re-apply for employment with the firm after graduation. 

Best wishes to you, my coworkers, and Acme Corporation for continued success.

In the meantime, I want to help you make the integration of a new employee go as smoothly as possible. Please let me know how I can best assist with the transition of my job and responsibilities to another employee.

I will miss my employment with the company and wish you all the best.

Regards,

Employee Signature

“Dear Ms. Ayres,

I am sending this letter to inform you that I am resigning from my position as a senior assistant at Smith Communications in order to pursue further education. I have recently decided to take my career in a different direction and wish to devote some time to earn a new degree. My last day of work will be January 15, 2014, so please accept this letter as my official two weeks’ notice of resignation from Smith Communications. I hope you understand.

I plan to put forth all efforts to reduce any inconvenience this resignation may cause to Smith Communications. I am also willing to train a replacement to take over my duties if needed. If you have any questions regarding this matter or wish to discuss anything with me, please feel free to contact me at (555)-555-5555 or [email] I look forward to hearing from you.

Although I have enjoyed my time at Smith Communications and am grateful for all of the valuable experience I earned, I feel that I have made the best choice for my future and look forward to my further education.

“Bobbi Connelly

Greene & Browne Engineering

100 Broadway Lane, New Parkland, CA, 91010

Dear Ms. Ortiz,

Please accept this letter as a formal resignation to take effect in two weeks (September 26th).

Let me state that my time with Greene & Browne has been an unparalleled success. I could not ask for a greater learning experience or a better group of people to work with. Without them, I would be lost in the migration of HMI systems, the troubleshooting of ESD and DCS systems, or effective processes for the petrochemical industry. As a junior engineer, I could not have paid for a better education.

Unfortunately, company policy forbids my becoming a full-time engineer without the proper credentials. That means despite my talents and experiences, I have hit a ceiling here. But working with your engineers and my work has inspired me. I plan to go back and finish school, getting a degree in Engineering and my certification in ABB Programming from an accredited association like the American Association of Geological Engineers.

I think this is a better option than trying to go to school part-time while maintaining a full-time positon with Greene & Brown. Trust that when the time comes, I will be giving you a call. So look forward to holding a full-time engineer slot for me.

Best regards,

Bobbi Connelly”
