Letter of Recommendation

Letter Of Recommendation (LOR)

  • If you are planning to pursue your higher education abroad, then the Letter of Recommendation or LOR becomes an indispensable part of your application process
  • The LORD is essentially a letter that is written by your Professors/Mentors highlighting your achievements and providing an insight into your work ethics and academic caliber to recommend your application for admission to the university
  • The Letter of Recommendation should provide the admissions officers with a clear picture of your achievements, skills and contributions, that would help them to form a favorable opinion of you
