Academic Reference Letter

Academic Reference Letter


An academic reference letter is usually given to accompany a student’s resume in his quest for employment or internship.  After a student gets over with his studies, he may want to join another institute for higher studies or would want to join any company for internship or employment.

An academic reference letter mentions the academic qualifications, talents and brilliance of the student. It is written by the institution where the student had previously studied. The academic reference letter states the school performance of the student and his conduct while at school to warrant a favorable consideration of employment.

It is very important for the student to maintain a healthy and impressive relationship with his authorities at school because any nuisance created in school might reflect in the reference letter which would make it difficult for the student to find employment or admissions on higher levels.

This is a very formal letter and so care should be taken while writing this letter. It should be written in the correct format and no mistakes should be made. No informal terms should be used in the letter and only positive points of the students should be covered.
