Format of University Recommendation Testimonial Letter
A testimonial is a document that povide information regarding the person’s conduct, abilities, skills, experiences etc. There are two types of testimonials, one is given by the college or the university for the student as a recommendation and one the student testimonial that is given for the university. The second one is called student testimonial and here are some example of it.
These provide about how the student feel about the experince in the university.
The testimonial which we are talking about is essentially a reference letter for you to use in your future career. Often the university will circulate the format for filling the students’ testimonial. Then the students just have to fill it up with suitable information.
