Sample cover letter for Internship position at victoria and albert museum
My name is Francesca and I am currently attending the Undergraduate Degree in Economics for Arts, Culture and Communication at Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi (Milan).
I am writing this letter in order to apply for an International Internship, which could provide me with the opportunity of participating to what I consider an extremely interesting experience.
As my academic career shows, my interests have always gravitated around arts and culture. The main
reason why I am strongly interested in joining this program, therefore, is that I immediately found it attractive
but also challenging at the same time, since it could provide me with the chance to translate into practice
what I have always only studied theoretically. Moreover, I believe it well matches several aspects potentially
very useful for my training, both from an academic and a human point of view; in particular, the fact of
spending some months abroad in such an excellent Cultural Institution as Victoria & Albert Museum is,
makes it a really out of the ordinary opportunity. Indeed, I believe that Your Institution embodies the concept
of a complete Cultural Institution, with its aims of spreading and making decorative and performing arts
available to the greatest number of people possible, on the one hand, and , on the other, with the purposes
of conserving and protecting these priceless artworks, stressing the fundamental role that art has always
played in the past and nowadays plays, as a channel of communicating what is incommunicable . Besides,
the Internship assumes even more attractiveness to me since it takes place in London, a city which has
gained one of the strongest position in this field thanks to its capability to innovate: this makes it an even
more fascinating experience for me, since that is the environment where I would mostly like to operate at the
end of my academic carrier and the topics on which I will have to work are the leading thread of my studies.
Beyond the connection with my studies and interests, I believe this would be a one-time experience for me
from a personal point of view as well, since I have always been moved by a true desire for investigating other
people’s lifestyle and this has led me to catch every possible occasion in order to leave and discover new
environments in which to try to introduce me.
Finally, let me conclude only saying that I am sure that if I was given this opportunity I would do all my best
to exploit it as much as possible.
Lying in wait for an answer of Yours,
