Letters of Recommendation

Many study abroad programs require students to submit letters of recommendation as part of the application process to study abroad. When a student asks for a recommendation for Study Abroad they should provide the following:
  • Program information (university, country, duration)
  • Recommendation form
  • Deadline for the recommendation
  • Where the recommendation should go (student pick up, delivered to IPGE, sent directly to a program)
For some programs, students are also required to submit language evaluations. These evaluations are required when students are planning to take courses in a host language. These evaluations are used to evaluate the student’s ability to read, write, speak and listen in that language.

Please truthfully and accurately complete these recommendation and/or language evaluation forms. Feel free to draft a letter to accompany the recommendation forms if you do not feel there is enough room to comment on the student’s abilities.
