The recommendation letters must be written in either Mandarin Chinese or English. The recommender may choose to fill in the online recommendation letter (recommended option) or upload a scanned file of the recommendation letter. A hard copy of the recommendation letter is to be provided only upon request by the department/graduate institute.

Finding a Recommender

There is no hard rule as to who you should ask to be your recommender. However, we advise that your recommender be a teacher or employer that knows you well and can accurately portray your strengths and potential. If you are applying for more than one department/graduate institute, you may have only one recommender for all your programs, or different recommenders for each program. Note that if a recommender is recommending you for multiple programs, they will have to fill in or write a recommendation letter for each program.

Number of Recommendation Letters

Some departments/graduate institutes may request 1 or 2 recommendation letters, whereas some may not require that you submit any recommendation letters. Please refer to the application requirements to find out the number of recommendation letters required by your department/graduate institute. For each application, you may send up to 5 recommendation letter requests. You will be able to submit your application after the minimum required number of recommendation letters is uploaded. If the department/graduate institute requires 2 recommendation letters, but received 3 from your application, you will not be able to choose which letters will or will not get reviewed.

Regarding the Application Deadline

After filling in your recommenders’ information, you will be able to send out the recommendation letter requests through the application system to your recommenders’ e-mails. You will be able to check if your recommender has opened the e-mail, and whether they have uploaded a recommendation letter. The recommendation letters are considered part of your application.

Please ensure that your recommender uploads the recommendation letters within the designated time frame.
