Drawing mainly on Bhatia’s (1993, 2004) and Swales' (1990) genre analysis models, this study examines the genre of the English letters of appeal of postgraduate, non-native English speaking students at a public Malaysian university, in order to discern structural or rhetorical moves in these requests.
