Recommendations are not required, however, you should submit two letters of recommendation if you are applying to competitive programs.
The letters of recommendation should be from your academic advisor and/or university instructors. Recommendations should, at a minimum, address the following questions:
- How long and in what capacity have you known this student?
- What is your assessment of this student's academic motivation and performance? Does this student perform to his/her abilities?
- How would you describe this student in terms of maturity, responsibility, honesty, and character?
- Does this student have your recommendation to participate on an overseas program? Do you have any reservations?
