Who should I ask for a letter of reference?

You are applying for a PhD programme in the social sciences, so, in order to assess your academic abilities, it is highly recommended to ask academic representatives, such as your thesis supervisor, to write a letter of reference.

A reference letter should contain a short description of your academic performance and discuss your qualifications and interest in the PhD programme.

We will consider other references, provided that they can give us fundamental information about your suitability to the PhD programme.
