13. Is there any specific template for recommendation letters?

The GEMMA Selection Committee requires you to submit two letters of recommendation from two professionals who have taught you or worked with you. When filling out your application form, you will need to provide us with the contact details of the two authors of your letters. The system will send an automated email to each person, with a link enabling them to attach the letters, signed and stamped, to your application. You will receive email confirmation each time a letter is uploaded to your application.

The letters should indicate the professional or academic relationship between yourself and the author of the letter of recommendation and reflect on the applicant's academic and general suitability to undertake the proposed course of study. The letters of recommendation should specifically include the following information:

  How long the author has known the applicant and in what capacity.
  The nature and class of degree already obtained or expected to be obtained prior to the commencement of the course.
  How the applicant's achievements compare to those of her/his peers.
  For applicants who hold professional qualifications or have professional experience, how these qualifications and/or experience contribute to the applicant's eligibility.
  The applicant's general suitability for graduate study, including any distinct strengths or weaknesses.

Please remember that both letters MUST BE submitted before the established deadline. The system will generate links which will be valid until a specific absolute deadline for uploading the letters.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that the deadlines are met by both authors, therefore we highly recommend submitting the application sufficiently in advance.
