Please forward the enclosed letters to the referees and ask them to send their letters of recommendation directly to the dean of the PhD Programme.
The student is responsible for obtaining the letters and should actively inquire with the respective referees whether the letters have been sent.
Please note that Vienna Biocenter will be unable to process your application without letters of recommendation.
These letters are therefore an essential part of your application, and it is your responsibility to ensure that the referees write to us before June 24.
