A General Reference Letter (also known as a Letter of Recommendation) is a document written to provide a recommendation for another person. This document is used to endorse the qualifications, traits, and achievements of a candidate who is seeking admission or fellowship in an institution, for financial grants/scholarship or used for other personal or business purposes.

There is no particular form of writing a reference letter, but the document should give positive information about the person being recommended and the letter should be written by a person who is very familiar with the candidate and can attest to their character, skills and qualifications.

If an employment or work-related reference is required, an Employment Reference Letter is available for download on the website.

This document outlines the name, address, phone and email address of the person giving the recommendation, the name and address of the person being recommended, a description of the relationship between the person giving the recommendation and the person being recommended, the core interests, skills and abilities of the person being recommended. The reference letter explains the reasons why the person being recommended should be considered.
