    Letter Of Recommendation (LOR) for Masters 

    Studying abroad can bring a substantial change in your life. It will give you endless opportunities both abroad and back home. Students in India go abroad to get a quality education, world-class job opportunities, a better standard of life, etc. The process of securing admission abroad can be complex & demanding. From giving the required tests like IELTS/GMAT/GRE/TOEFL to writing a Statement of Purpose, & having a Letter Of Recommendation (LOR) holds quite some value. LORs are a testimony of your academic performance & your standing as an eligible student at an institution.

    The LOR plays a significant part in your admissions process. There is no definition of a perfect LOR.

    However, the more gaps you leave, the lesser your chances of getting into your dream university are.

    • At the time of choosing a recommender, you must keep in mind that the person should know you personally. It will increase your chances of getting admission if the university contacts the recommender.
    • Always choose a recommender who is reputed. For instance, if your recommender has held a high position, works in diverse areas, and has a good reputation (academically or professionally), your LOR will be way more impactful than others.
    • The recommender must be someone who knows you personally.
    • The person writing your LOR must be the one whose words should be convincing to the admission committee. If the person writing the recommendation has worked with you or has assisted you, or any other instance that directly establishes a connection between his words and action would be much more helpful. 
    • The last but the most important thing is that you should never copy the LOR from anywhere. It will be a fatal mistake, and the university will never consider your candidature.


    Going abroad for higher studies is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and you mustn't do anything that can harm your prospects of going to your dream university. A good LOR with all the minute details in place will help you in ways you can't imagine. So, get a good LOR and set yourself on a new journey.
