Recommendation dashboard for Advisors

Students send teacher recommendation invites from their BridgeU account > Recommendations tab. Once a student has sent a recommendation request to the relevant staff member, they will receive an email notifying them of the request. As an advisor, you may be asked by one or more of your students to write a letter of recommendation.

All recommendation requests are viewable on the Recommendation Letters > My requests dashboard where you can view, edit and submit all your recommendation requests in one place.

After receiving a teacher recommendation request email, click the Log in to access the request list button to view your recommender dashboard or you can log into your account at any time using your account credentials: or for China users: 

As an advisor you can access your Recommender dashboard in Documents > Recommendation letters > My requests

If you upload a letter of recommendation in the Written Evaluation section, please ensure that the file is a PDF, less than 2MB in size and is NOT password encrypted. You can save the form and return to complete it at a later time if you wish.


After submission

You can resubmit the teacher recommendation form with changes, as long as the student’s advisor has not already actioned your submission. You can check if your submitted form is editable for resubmission in the Action column: the green View/Edit form button will be available. 

If your submitted teacher recommendation has a white View Submission button, you cannot make any further changes to your form for resubmission. In this instance, we recommend that you contact the student’s advisor to let them know of the changes you wish to make.

Advisors receiving completed recommendations from recommenders will process the recommendation in the same way on behalf of students, there is no change to this process for advisors. For more information on how to submit completed teacher recommendations to universities, please review this help centre article: Teacher Recommendations Overview
