Dear Sir or Madam,
Currently I am a student at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven and the purpose of this letter is to apply for an graduation internship position at your company, as part of Fontys' HBO stage requirements starting in September 2019. I am excited to learn about a dynamic and exciting opportunity at your company. Herewith I would like to apply for five months internship position at this company.
While studying at university, I have completed several insightful courses related to various programming languages and software development. I have developed a particular interest in software development through my studies and I wish to pursue a master’s degree in the same subject. I feel confident that with my strong interest in software development, I can make a positive contribution to your team.
I am an international student who always looks beyond the global mind set. I obtained a diploma in Information Technology with a specialization in Networking from New South Wales Technical and Further Educational Commission Australia. The main reason of joining this company is to enhance my knowledge and skills. I have the ability and desire to learn things quickly and accurately. Along with this goal-oriented and work well with others. Also taking high responsibility for my work. My background and qualifications would make a perfect fit for your organization. An intern position at your company would offer me a valuable opportunity to get acquainted with the process of software development and its different stages in practice.

There is a difference between Indonesian study curricula and Nederland's study curricula.  In Indonesia, we study a courses for a semester. It's a little bit confusing to adapt with the courses condition.

Overall
I am a student here, have been for multiple years.

Take in consideration that I am a computer science (ICT) student here and that I can't really talk about the other courses on this school, because I've never have taken part in them.

So where do I begin?
Let's start off with the biggest problem this school is facing; They can't organize anything. Teachers often don't know or enforce their own rules, even though someone in a different class has very different rules. 
Teachers never have any structure, and the way we get feedback from them always varies, which is real tiring because they get really upset if you don't do everything according to their own plan.

A lot of teachers don't even know their subject! I've gotten a fair share of teachers who've learned a whole other programming language trying to teach us C#. In the end, the smartest kid in the class has to teach everyone everything because the teachers don't know anything at all.

Speaking of which, another problem I have! Whenever you actually ask your teacher something, they often flat-out tell you to "just google it". 

I can wholeheartedly say that I've learned more from the stack overflow community than I have from the teachers, which is really sad because I don't even know why I'm paying tuition at that point.

Another big problem is the way they keep attendance.

In college, the general rule is that a student is mature enough to understand how important your attendance is but they can't force you to stay if you really have to go for any reason and most of the time, they won't ask unless it's really important.

However at the computer science course at Fontys (let's call it 'FHICT' for short) they say that they follow that rule, only to play police officer and keep your attendance in check. 

So what does this mean? This means that even if you work hard and get everything done far before the day ends, the teachers will still act out against you, resulting in you failing the class and having to start over, because you didn't stay until the end of the day (typically 04:00 PM in this course).

Do you have to work at 05:00 PM and do you have to leave the class a bit earlier, so you get to eat before you work? Too bad, guess you're just a bad student.

This also means that someone who doesn't know anything about the subject, but stays until the end of the day is more likely to pass than someone who shows up less but masters most of the subject, which is just absurd to say the least.
