If you need a letter of recommendation for applications at national or international universities (e.g., for exchange or master programs) or for scholarships, please be aware of the following information and requirements:
We can only write a letter of recommendation for you, if you have successfully completed at least one course offered by our department (i.e., lecture or seminar).
To ask for a letter of recommendation, please send us the following documents via email as one (!) cumulative document:
- Current transcript of records
- Ranking – absolute and relative ranking of your current grade in relation to other students in your program of studies (students need to request the ranking at the Prüfungsamt)

Additionally, please include the following information in your email: your name, your matriculation number, your program of studies as well as the name of the university / foundation at which you are applying.
During the writing of the letter of recommendation, you may be asked for a personal interview.
