    英國留學英文推薦信注意要件(含範本範例)
    學廣告行銷的都知道,找學者、名人背書,是最簡單又不受質疑的行銷手法。推薦信就是真實生活中的一種廣告。好處是
    ,舞台是自己的,推薦者可以自己找。
    就像是視為以第三者的角度來推銷自己,推薦信數量依學校要求不同,但通常有工作經驗之申請者,最好準備學術(學校
    教授)、及工作(工作長官)各一份推薦信,以證明學術及專業上的平衡。
    而推薦信的重要性不僅僅影響到能否出國留學,也關係到獎學金的申請哦!

    在準備推薦信時,分為2個步驟(事前準備請推薦者寫推薦信

    ◎事前準備分為擇定推薦人選了解推薦信內容的重點及方向準備二份推薦信3個部分:

    A.擇定推薦人選:在請長官、老師…等撰寫推薦信前,都有會有請「名人推薦」的想法,而所謂的名人,不僅是能耳熟能
    詳的政經界、學術界上的大名,若在其領域很活耀者,也是重點人物哦!找推薦者前,可以考慮以下幾點:
    ‧推薦都是名人可以加分嗎??
    ‧選擇最適合我的推薦者(而非最好的)
    ‧推薦者跟我的關係與公正性
    ‧推薦都跟申請學校的關係。
    ‧推薦信每個學校,約需2-3封。(若畢業多年,著重公司主管推薦信;若剛於學校畢業,則以學校教授推薦信為主)
    ※結論:推薦者最重要的考量是對申請者的了解,而不僅是推薦者本身的名氣。畢竟國外學校未必知道在台灣有名的推薦
    信的重點是您的優點且需熟悉申請者的學習情況、學習目的是否明確、適應能力、創造能力、品性和特長等。

    B、了解推薦信內容的重點及方向:
    推薦信內容字數大約從250至300字之間,故如果在短短行字之間交待重點及方向;且也
    利於提供給推薦人相關的資料。
    ‧推薦者的全名與申請人的基本情況介紹
    ‧交待推薦人與申請者的關係(認識期間、認識程度、關係)
    ‧對申請者的基本評價(如:專業基礎、個性、品性、特點、工作態度、前途估計和實例)
    (也可適時提出較無傷大雅的缺點)
    (品性部分於之前〝履歷表〞所提出的Interest是相呼應的;因國外學校在乎學生是否身心健全、品格兼顧)
    (學校老師著重學業潛能;公司主管則強調實務應變能力)
    ‧推薦人介紹申請人曾獲得獎勵、發表的論文、參加過重要學術會議,以及曾在學生組織或學術團中的任職來支持自己的評價。
    ‧推薦人必須清楚地表明被推薦人留學的身分是研究生還是訪問學者,專業領試域及研究方向。
    ‧必須表明推薦人的態度是極力推薦還是保留推薦

    ※結論:若推薦者不是太清楚申請者時,準備好推薦信的重點和方向,能利於在請推薦者撰寫時,提供相關訊息給。且在擬推
    薦信草稿時,也較能抓住要點。

    C、準備二份推薦信:在台灣的教授、名人、主管,通常十分忙碌,英文也不一定流利,故有時推薦人可能會要求申請人先擬好
    草稿,再來修改、簽名。在擬草稿或是正常文件時,注意如下:(範例於下方附註)
    ‧推薦信要客觀、公正、切忌流于形式,內容空洞,
    ‧要與申請人的其它材料(如成績單)等相符。
    ‧應注意格式、文法等,內容力求精簡有力。
    ‧推薦信的格式與一般書信基本相同。有信頭,發信日期,收信人姓名,稱呼,正文,信尾謙稱,簽名,推薦人姓名,職稱及工
    作單位等部分。
    ‧勿妄自菲薄,因推薦信用來表達自己的優勢的哦!
    ‧注意學校是否有提供現成的推薦表格,是利用問答的方式,直接讓推薦者作敘述和評價;但推薦表格上常有較難以填寫項目,
    建議填寫 I Don't Know,以致不會產生嚴重影響。


    請推薦者寫推薦信須溝通撰寫方式,由申請者擬草稿或是推薦人自行寫作;且盡可能的利用交談機會讓推薦人能明白的了解您
    ,則在自行寫作或修改推薦信時,才能不會有不符合現狀的敘述產生。
    完成推廌信注意下方是否有推薦者簽名,務必連同附帶的評量表作彌封處理,在封口上簽名,以昭信校方。

    ★主管推薦:
    Dear Admissions Officer,

    I am writing this recommendation in support of Ms. Chieh-Yu Shih's application to your Master's Program in
    Management of Health Policy and Administration. I feel strongly that Ms. Shih is a well-qualified candidate
    and will be an asset in your school as she was in ours.

    Ms. Shih was first a student at our center and later because of her excellent performance, was asked to
    work as a teaching assistant from June 1998 until now. Her duties as a teaching assistant include attending
    to teachers' requests in classrooms, helping students' individual needs and speaking to her classes everyday.
    Ms. Shih has out-performed our expectations. She is a responsible person who prepares carefully ahead of
    class everyday. We have never heard any complaints from the teachers she works with.

    Since 1998, Ms. Shih has led 7 classes and worked with over 1000 students. Being a teaching assistant can
    sometimes be a tiring job, as one must constantly resolve every student's questions and problems. The job
    can also get repetitive and exhausting. Nonetheless, Ms. Shih works patiently with each and every one of
    her students. Ms. Shih also works well with her co-workers and is well liked by her peers.

    I find Ms. Shih's excellent performance as a teaching assistant to be a good indicator that she will excel in
    your program and later in her career pursuit. Ms. Shih has demonstrated leadership potential, attention to
    details, good public speaking ability, organization skills and ability to work in teams. These are all essential
    managerial qualities. I recommend Ms. Shih to your program without hesitation.

    Sincerely,

    Emily Tsoung

    Managing Director

    ★教授推薦:
    To Whom It May Concern,

    I am very happy to recommend a fine student, Ms. Wen-Hao Lin to your esteemed Master of Business
    Administration program. During her four years at the National Taiwan University, she attended my classes
    in Marketing and Consumer behavior.

    Over the years, I have had the pleasure to meet and teach many students, as I am professor at both National
    Taiwan University and National Chengchi University, two fine universities in Taiwan. Ms. Wen-Hao Lin has
    remained one of my favorite students. As a result, when I ran into her requesting for transcript at school, I
    volunteered to write her recommendation letter.

    Although Ms. Wen-Hao Lin graduated several years ago, she has remained a well-known person at the
    Department of Business Administration at the National Taiwan University. Ms. Wen-Hao Lin is remembered in
    my class as her project on the marketing strategy of Converse and Travel Fox is used as an example for my
    students. Moreover, Ms. Wen-Hao Lin initiated a project to allow all male students, including the ones who
    had not completed military duty as required by Taiwanese government, the right to leave Taiwan on short-term
    study tour visit when she was a member of AIESEC. Her contribution has affected many students' lives.

    I have always known Ms. Wen-Hao Lin would excel in whatever she chooses to do. As a student, she was very
    mature, motivated and driven. She was an excellent student and an over-achiever. She was one of those rare
    students who are a pleasure to teach. Ms. Wen-Hao Lin is gifted with outstanding analytical and quantitative
    ability. She has the ability to grasp concepts taught to her and develop her own viewpoints, something I seldom
    see in Taiwanese students. I believe some of her initiative and her strong belief in her own ability to accomplish
    anything is due to her diverse childhood background.

    Based on Ms. Wen-Hao Lin 's performance in school and at work, I believe she will be a highly successful student
    at your school. I support her application for admission without reservation, and would appreciate any assistance
    you can offer her.

    Sincerely,

    Professor Chen-hu Huang

    Department of Business Administration
    National Taiwan University
