How to apply

References (Please read the following information carefully)

Applicants must provide two letters of reference in support of their application. These letters should be written specifically to the JET Programme Office, addressing your suitability to take part on the programme. Any information regarding your character, personal interests, extra-curricular activities, academic ability or work ethic is particularly welcome. It is your responsibility to choose the appropriate references for your application, but these referees should be people that have known you in a professional or academic environment. References from close friends or relatives will not be accepted.

Guidelines for Graduates

Graduates are advised to provide 1 academic reference from your former university tutor/lecturer AND 1 professional reference from your current or former employer OR 2 professional references, each from either a current or former employer. If neither of these options is possible, 2 academic references may instead be provided.

Guidelines for Students

Provide 1 academic reference from your university tutor/lecturer AND 1 professional reference from your current or former employer OR 2 academic references. If neither of these options is possible, 2 professional references may instead be provided.

Criteria (show this to your referees)

*If headed paper is unavailable, your referee should acknowledge this within the letter and provide their full contact details or business card.

Submission

Your references should be enclosed within your application pack and not sent separately. Please do not open your references. If you submit more than two reference letters, two will be chosen at the random. Any extras will be discarded without being read.
