Here is an example of a placement cover letter. This is the structure and general length you should be aiming for...
Dear Mr Attenborough,
I am writing in regards of the vacancy for the marketing placement with IBM, as advertised on RateMyPlacement. Please find my attached CV.
I am particularly interested to this placement at IBM because of the focus on different areas of digital marketing. IBM is at the forefront of the digital marketing industry, and I am fascinated by the cloud-based software IBM provides for companies on email, web and social media. I have been reading about IBM’s most recent project, which aimed to improve customer experience across the buyer journey. It links closely to project I completed in the first year of my Marketing degree, which centred around optimising user experience for online retail.
I am halfway through a Marketing degree, and on course to achieve a 2:1. So far, I have focussed on digital marketing modules, which have imparted strong analytical and problem solving skills. I am also now proficient in basic coding. My three years of part at Mecca Bingo have provided experience with customer service practices, and other useful soft skills.
Thank you for considering my application, I’m looking forward to the prospect of discussing the placement in greater detail in an interview.
Training is an important part of learning. Training enables a student to use his knowledge in the industry effective manner. In almost all the higher educational courses like engineering, management or medical or other such courses, training is an essential part of studies. When you are gearing up for the industrial training make sure that your cover letter will generate a complete detail account about you in a professional flair.
Here is a sample training internship cover letter:

Dear Mr. Symonds,
I want to apply for a training internship in your company. I am a student of engineering at Montreal Technical College and have recently completed my sixth semester. My branch is Electronics and Communication. Industrial training is a part of our curriculum and is compulsory for all students. I want to do my industrial training from a renowned organization like yours.
I have a thorough knowledge of programming languages like C++, PHP & MySql and also have a good command over the web developing tools. I also done a certification in web designing & development and made a project on Website Trends.
Along with the academics, my presentation skills, my urge of learning and my self confidence makes me a righteous intern to be worked in a prestigious organization like yours. I, therefore, am enclosing my resume for your kind perusal and looking forward for a positive response.
