Your referee should return the form directly to the Registrar by 28 February.

Choosing a Referee

Since your referee is requested to provide an academic reference, you are advised to choose someone who is familiar with your work and who understands the demands of the course that you are planning to undertake.

They should be able to comment in detail on your qualifications, ability, motivation and character, so it may be helpful to choose someone who has known you for some time.

Candidates with a UK undergraduate degree or recognised equivalent will have to provide a copy of their certificate and transcript as evidence.

Candidates with no undergraduate will need to provide two references which should comment specifically on the role that the student has undertaken e.g. job title, dates of employment, nature of the work, providing evidence of specific experience relevant to the course and a detailed CV which demonstrates your suitability to study the course e.g. specific employment dates, job titles, descriptions of tasks undertaken in employment etc.
