Dear Professor Henley,
I am writing to inform you that, unfortunately, I am unable to continue to attend the Logic II course this semester. I would like to request permission to defer as I understand that this is only possible with your approval.
The issue is that I am currently doing an internship with ABC Ltd. It started in July and will continue until the end of the semester. The internship takes up 25 hours per week and I am concerned that it does not leave me with enough time to study. I have already asked if I can reduce my hours there, but this is not possible.
With your approval, I could take Logic II next semester instead. I realize that this would mean a heavier workload than usual next semester, but I assure you that I would be able to manage my time and keep up.
Thank you for considering my request and I would be happy to come in and discuss the matter further.
