Letters of Recommendation

In case you need a letter of recommendation from our chair, please

  • make sure you have participated in at least two courses (e.g. lecture and seminar).
  • state which courses you have attended at our chair and which researcher at our chair knows you best.
  • make sure your grades were good (otherwise, the value of a letter will be too low).
  • send an overview of your current grades, school grades (Abitur), a CV and detailed motivation to polit∂econ.kit.edu
  • make sure we have at least one month to write a letter of recommendation for you.


 Letters of recommendation are sent directly to the institution you apply to.
