Who should write the letters of recommendation and what should their content be?

The choice of the reference/recommendation letters’s author is entirely up to you. It is your responsibility to make sure that these people know you well and are associated with you through work or academic collaboration. It is important that they have all the necessary information about your background so that they will be in a position to refer to you in a favourable way. Special talents, abilities and “extra-curricular” activities or pursuits in the field of Greek language and culture should be particularly mentioned.
