Can the recommendation letter be written by a lecturer?
The recommendation letter serves to better know the STP candidate/participant, in particular the activities outside his or her scientific and academic environment. Achievement at university show grades that are included in the index and other information in the survey. The recommendation letter should not repeat these but rather bring new knowledge about the candidate: his or her activities, personality traits, group work, interests, etc.
