FAQ Letters of Recommendation

  • Where can I get a letter of recommendation?

    Students who need an appraisal for an application at a foreign university (e.g., study abroad or master's degree) or in the context of scholarships and/or foundations should firstly direct their request to the dean's office or write to gutachten(at)

  • What should I do if the dean's office directed me to your chair?

    Please direct your request to Alin Schröder and make an appointment at short-notice and independently during consultation hours.

    Please provide the following documents for appraisal:

    • Certificate of undergraduate degree (if applicable)
    • Transcript of Records
    • Ranking (i.e. class ranking from the study office)
    • CV

    Please note that you commit yourself to inform us upon learning about the outcome (acceptance/rejection/wait list) of your application.

    Upon receipt of all required documents at the chair, the process usually takes 2 to 4 weeks. Please take this into account regarding application deadlines.
