Subject: Application for psychology internship programme at your institute.

Respected Sir,

I was intrigued by your internship offers which I saw on your website, few days ago. I am submitting a formal letter of interest for the position of a clinical psychologist intern position at your clinic. I have completed my graduation from the University of Manchester and hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

It would be a great opportunity for me to work as a psychologist intern because I would be able to develop new therapeutic skills and explore vital psychological processes. My experience has made me self ethical and I have good interpersonal and communicational skills. As a psychologist intern at your clinic, I will assist you with research work and deliver optimum care to the people. My education has skilled me to organise surveys, compile analytical reports and carry out research operations. As a psychologist student major, I am exposed to several courses related to child and adolescent development.

I have enclosed my resume along with this letter for your full information about my education and expertise. I would like to have an opportunity to discuss with you my skills and qualifications. Thanks a lot for your time and consideration.

Subject: Applying for civil engineering training at your institute.

Respected Sir,

I am a graduate student pursuing Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Dreams University, New York. I am writing this letter to apply for a civil and communal engineer trainee position at your company. This is in reference to the advertisements and updates on your social websites, offering training to graduated civil engineers.

During my graduation years, I have undertaken four civil projects which came out to be successful. In addition, I always scored meritorious positions in daily engineering assignments and practical field work. I want to join this training session with you so that I get a chance to improve my skills and learn newer ways of becoming a perfect civil engineer. I am ready to be trained during the night hours and for some extended day hours, if required. The training for the post of a civil engineer is of great interest to me because I want to use my education to improve my knowledge in those fields in which I lack.

I am enclosing my resume along with this letter so that you have a full insight about my education and professional qualifications. I look forward to work under you as a civil engineer trainee.

Student Cover Letters

Student cover letters are documents which are attached to any kind of application provided by a student to an institution or educational organization. For example, a scholarship document submitted by a student to an institution must be appended with a student cover letter outlining the purpose of the application and the general import of the contents within the scholarship document.

  • Student cover letters must be detailed and comprehensive. They should contain not only an outline of the contents of the application or project submitted by the student, but also a statement of intent or abstract.
  • The importance of student cover letters can be judged from the immense influence they exert on professors, colleges and universities. Often, such documents help in generating interest and enthusiasm about a particular application or project.
  • The tone of a student cover letter must be that of clarity and conviction. A student cover letter must attempt to capture interest and audience attention at once, so that they are enthused to move onto the actual content.
  • Student cover letters must be carefully written. They should be simple as far as fonts and design is concerned. It is the best practice to eschew ornate designs and fonts as they distract attention from the contents of the student cover letter.
