After the examination of your documents we may arrange a personal meeting with you. From the date we have received your entire documents it takes approximately 4 weeks until we have finished your letter of reference. Thus, please contact us in time! We hope you understand that we cannot compile a letter of reference if you do not fulfill the general requirements.

Please note: Letter of reference for an application for studies abroad

We can compile a standardized letter of reference (e.g. for the LMUexchange program) for students who want to apply for studies abroad already during the 3rd semester and therefore have only attended one of our courses. If you need an individual letter of reference (e.g. for a speculative application) you still need to fulfill the general requirements stated above.
