To whom it may concern:

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to enquire about a possible internship opportunity with your company from the dd/mm/yy for about xx weeks.

I would like to utilise an international background to pursue a career in the field of xxxxxx (eg: Public Relations and Advertising). Therefore, an internship at a xxxxxx (eg Public Relations and Advertising) company in London would greatly help guide my future career path.

Although I have never worked in London in the field of xxxxx (eg Public Relations and Advertising), I am very eager to learn and expand my skills and horizons. Recently I have successfully carried out various projects in these areas, as my CV shows, gaining useful experience. I found that this really motivated me to become more involved in this field. I think London is a great base to learn from and look forward to working there.

I strongly believe that with the combination of my experience, education, and motivation I am an appropriate candidate for the internship and would make a very useful and worthwhile contribution to your organisation.

Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully

(Name of student)
