  • 4.Who needs a Letter of Recommendation & why? Any student who wants to study abroad must have a professor write a letter of recommendation for them. No matter what course they are taking (UG, MS, MBA, or Ph.D.) or where they are from, each student needs at least three letters of recommendation from their school or an expert foundation. ▫ Instructors, educators, school advocates, and administrators are all acceptable sources for UG LORs. Teachers, managers of entry-level jobs, or the captain or director of an organization where the applicant has worked in the past can write recommendation letters for graduate students. For MBA candidates, it is essential that their letters of recommendation come from people who are experts in their fields, and this is especially true if the recommenders have three years of experience or more. Recent graduates of MBA and Ph.D. programs can approach former professors and thesis advisors for recommendation letters. 04
  • 5.What should you need to clear about while writing a Letter of Recommendation for the UK? A recommendation letter is an essay that talks about the good and bad points of the candidate. It is usually between 400 and 500 words long. Some details must be in a recommendation letter, like how long you’ve known the person and what kind of relationship you have with them. Letters of recommendation for university is usually expected to be typewritten on company letterhead. Both the academic institution’s letterhead and the professional organization’s letterhead are required for a letter of recommendation. In the latter scenario, the letterhead of the company where the recommender currently works is a crucial consideration. Since this is the case, it is incumbent upon the student to know how to select an appropriate recommender. Remember that a LOR is not just a restatement of an SOP. The purpose of a stellar letter of recommendation is to shed light on facets of your character that were not covered in your statement of purpose or resume. So, a great recommender is someone who knows you well, has seen the quality of work you’ve delivered, and is willing to give concrete examples of your contribution and greatness. A generic LOR is not acceptable because it does not add anything to your application for the specific program you are interested in. Keep in mind that the Admissions Office receives hundreds of applications each year, and that yours is just one of them. It’s also crucial that you try to make each and every one of your letters of recommendation (LORs) stand out from the crowd by citing specific, relevant examples. Writing a compelling SOP isn’t the only thing that matters, though. A strong recommendation letter is crucial as well. Just follow the rules and remember the most common mistakes that people make in recommendation letters. ©2022 AHZ ASSOCIATES LTD 05
