I am applying for a training-based Schengen visa. I have to go to Germany and work on a research project with a prof. for about 6–8 weeks. The prof. is providing me the accommodation at his home, a small isolated room. The visa requires, "Proof of Accommodation", a "Training Approval letter", and a "Covering letter". I wanted to know the exact format for these letters as per what the embassy looks for.

I would assume that a letter from the professor of institution on proper letterhead would satisfy the requirement. –  Jacob May 20 at 21:45
There's no "exact format" for these letters. Anything from the professor on the university's letterhead mentioning the details you've just mentioned here will suffice. –  Ankur Banerjee May 20 at 22:01
