Letters of References

Your referees will be contacted and will be allowed to submit the reference only after you have completed and registered the first step of the online application form including the names and contact details of referees. In order to receive the references in time by the deadline, you should register the referee details as soon as possible . This is possible any time and you do not yet need to submit the final version of your application at that time.

When you register your referees' contact details in the online application form, an email requesting a reference on your behalf is automatically sent to the referees you have nominated. Nevertheless, it is your responsibility to contact referees directly to inform them of your request, to verify that they have received the email request and to ensure that they submit the reference by the deadline. Please note that reference letters can be submitted by the registered referees (before the deadline) even after you have submitted your application. Registered referees may contact the Academic Service in case of questions or problems emailing [email protected].

Notes for Referees

Once the candidate has registered the details of their referees, each referee will receive an e-mail with access details for submitting their reference letter online.

  • References should be submitted as PDF files. Please use standard international fonts, do not use macros, special characters, password-protection, electronic signatures or logos.
  • Do not send a hard copy.
  • You may write in a language other than English, but English will guarantee the widest possible reading.
  • References from current full-time or part-time EUI professors will not be accepted.

If you have any problems or questions, please contact the Academic Service emailing [email protected].

The deadline for submitting references is 25 October 2023 (14:00 CEST). Kindly note that the EUI encourages candidates to apply and register their referees as early as possible: the application process is open from mid-July to the deadline 25 October 2023 (14:00 CEST).
