Frequently, students ask for letters of recommendation that they need to supply for study abroad programs, scholarships etc. If you need a letter of recommendation please make sure that you carefully observe the instructions given below:

1) All correspondence regarding the letters of recommendation needs to be conducted by email. Supporting documentation (transcript, CV, other supporting documents and your draft) needs to be submitted as pdf-files together with the request. Requests lacking proper supporting documentation cannot be processed.

2) Your complete request must be submitted to the chair at least (!) three weeks before the deadline to sekretariat(at) Failure to meet this time frame will lead to requests not being processed.

3) Transcripts supplied as supporting documentation must be up-to-date, and supplied resumes must be sufficiently concise. A current photo is strongly recommended, so that we can recognize you from class.

4) Requests for letters of recommendation in English need to be accompanied by a draft for said recommendation. The reason is twinfold: Firstly, supplying such draft is an elegant proff of your language skills. Secondly, we thus avoid to omit important fact that you would like to see mentioned. Of course, everything needs to be properly proven by supporting documentation. 


Please note: All letters of recommendations will be mailed solely and directly to the addressee for whom they are meant. Under no circumstances will you be given access to our recommendation!
