As part of trying to organise a work experience placement, I decided to create a ‘draft email’ to send out to various people… Here it is..
Dear …… ,
I am a second year photography student studying at the University for the Creative of Arts in Farham.
As part of one of my units for the year, I have to organise and undergo a work experience placement from 31st March – 2nd May 2014.
I was wondering if it would be at all possible to assist you over the time I have written?
I look forward to hearing from you.

Using this as a template, the emails I’ve sent out to various people have altered slightly to help make the email sound interesting and to just fill it out slightly – touching up on our unit about case studies and how finding a placement will help the transition of me going from student to graduate to working in the photographic field, how I am a mature student studying on the course and such things.
