Letter of Recommendation

Requirements for the application period 2017/2018

For your application, two letters of recommendation are mandatory. One of the letters has to be provided by your Bachelor or Master supervisor (whichever is the case of your last  degree awarded). 

Please inform your referees as soon as possible to get their affirmation to write a recommendation on your behalf. On the online application form, you will have to fill in the referee contact tabs and follow the instructions to authorize the coordination office to invite the referee to submit his/her letter of recommendation electronically, on your behalf.
As soon as a letter of recommendation on your behalf has been submitted, we will send your referee a confirmatory email. The submission of a letter of reference on your behalf, is also indicated in the status box of your application form.

Please be aware that your application can only be processed after we have received both letters of recommendation. The deadline for submission of recommendation letters is December 6th 2017, 12:00 CET.

All applications which lack 2 letters after the deadline has expired will not be considered and will therefore not be processed any further. It is entirely your responsibility to make sure that the referees submit the letters of recommendation to the coordination office in time. On our part, recommendations will be held in strict confidence.
