As a teacher in Department of Biology, Nankai University, a leading university in China, I am very pleased to take this opportunity to recommend one of my favorite students to your PhD program.
In September, 20xx, Miss Zhang was my students in General Biology, the first professional course they take in the field. She likes it very much. I teach her in an open and interactive manner, she is active and passionate about answering class questions. Miss Zhang is bright, energetic and enthusiastic girl who loves speaking out her own ideas. She never escapes from those points of which she is skeptical. Apart from that, she often puts forward her ideas upon questions and exchanges all of her innovate ideas with me after class.
Upon ending of General Biology course, I asked my students to write an essay upon their understanding of biology. I discovered Miss Zhang’s essay was so impressive and persuasive; her careful essay comes from dozens of references to Biology literatures. In essay Miss Zhang stretched out her creative thinking upon status quo of biological research and branches in the field of biology. All of this speaks to her creative and logical and scientific thinking capability. I am gladly to say that Miss Zhang has a clear understanding about General Biology, that comprehension has been reflected fully in her essay. Therefore Miss Zhang got a full point for her essay in her class, and other students took it as model essay for granted.
I believe Miss Zhang’s industriousness, passion and dedication will make her an ideal candidate you are seeking for your program, so I highly recommend her without any hesitation to you. And I will greatly appreciate it if you could accept her into your program.
I am very pleased to write this recommendation for Mr. W.Y. so as to support his application for admission into your PhD program and for your consideration of his financial support.
Mr. W.Y. is a remarkable student in academic performance in our department. Upon his request, I enrolled him into my research team as my R.A. when he was still a junior, which was an exception. This bold decision was justified by his outstanding academic record during his first two years’ study. Working as my R.A., he has proved him to be a valuable potential researcher with the qualities of self-motivation, perseverance, modest and thirst for new information and technology. Though lacking of experience at the beginning compared with the other professionals in our team, he strove to keep up with the research by eagerly absorbing all necessary knowledge and constantly consulting other members with much modest. Therefore, not long after he could conduct the experiments without any assistance from the others working in the lab. He even led the discussion of our journal club that he set up from the very beginning in my lab, from which all of us benefited a lot. His diligence and perseverance in our lab have paid off. Within less than one year, he got involved and finished three of my research projects:
And he also took part in two published papers, one titled XXXX, the other XXXX. This type of acclaim is normally reserved for graduate students and I believe that this exemplifies his commitment to furthering his education.
Besides merits for scientific research, Mr. W.Y. also has a wonderful personality. All of us around enjoy the acquaintance and friendship from him. No matter as a teammate or a team leader, he is always cooperative, considerate and eager to provide help, making us feel so comfortable and confident to be along with him, either for work or just for personal companion.
This young man’s professional qualities and personal character have convinced me that he will have no trouble in succeeding in any career that he chooses to pursue, given the opportunity to have a try.
In short, I am confident to assert that Mr. W.Y. has the potential to distinguish himself as a successful researcher, and that this potential will be sure to be fully caressed and exploited if he can be accepted for further pursuit in this field in your institution. I shall greatly appreciate it if you will consider his application in light of this potential.
