  1. Please hand in your request for a letter of recommendation at least 4 weeks prior to your deadline. Requests that are submitted late cannot be accepted.
  2. Submit all your material in one e-mail.
  3. If you need the letter of recommendation for the "Dezernat für Internationale Beziehungen", please fill in your personal data and the desired location in the "Gutachten Formular".
  4. Please provide us with the following information:
  • field of study
  • courses you took with Prof. Dr. Buch, in which semester, grades achieved
  • all grades achieved so far
  • desired location abroad
  • reason you want to study there
  • recipient of letter of recommendation, including postal or e-mail adress as required
