Letter of Recommendation
Students may ask for a recommendation letter at our professorship (e.g. for applying at a foreign university).
Please note that you have to meet certain minimum requirements in order to obtain a recommendation letter and that we issue two recommendation letters maximum per person.

If you want to apply for a recommendation letter please send all supporting documents two weeks before submission deadline at the latest (up to six weeks in advance) to derivate.wiso(at)uni-hamburg.de(derivate.wiso"AT"uni-hamburg.de).
Please note the following general guidelines:
The letter of motivation (in English if necessary) should possibly contain the following information:
