Sample Academic Recommendation Letter:


Janet Johnson

Mathematics department head

Birmingham University, Birmingham

Date: 12th May 2014

Subject: academic recommendation letter for the Postgraduate Mathematics course

Dear Miss Johnson,

I, William Anderson am writing this letter to recommend Miss Julie Anders for the MSc. Mathematics course at your prestigious university.  I hope that you will consider this recommendation and select Miss Anders for the course.

I have known Miss Julie since 2010, the year in which she was admitted to London University for the graduate course in Mathematics. Ever since the starting of the course, she came across as an extremely bright, skilled and hardworking student. She has not only excelled in studies but also participated in several co-curricular activities of the college like event planning, fest hosting, dancing and singing. Miss Julie was awarded the 2nd rank in the college for her overall performance in BSc. Mathematics and I am sure that she will prove to be the perfect candidate for this course at your University.

If you need to know anything more about Miss Julie Anders, you can contact me directly at my phone number which has been provided below.

Glad to be of help,

Thanking you

William Anderson

Mathematics Professor

London University
