Letter of Recommendation

For applying to the LSM

Two letters of recommendation are mandatory. Of which, one should 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. This should be done before you add their information to the online application form, as the tool will automaticly send them an invitation to submit a letter on your behalf! Therefore, we recommend to have their approval beforehand. Once the e-letter has been sent it is not possible to change your choice of referee! 

As soon as you have submitted your application, both you and your referee(s) shall receive 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. All applications which lack the 2 letters will not be considered and after the permitted time period, will be deleted from the system! It is entirely your responsibility to make sure that the referees submit the letters of recommendation to the online tool in a timely fashion. On our part, recommendations will be held in strict confidence.


Due to data protection laws we are unable to permanently keep your information stored! All application will have to be deleted from the system on a regular basis!

Deadline for letters of reference is 3rd of December 2021, 12:00 noon CET!
