You need two referees: one academic and one relevant experience. Each reference should be written by only one person. The references are submitted through our website and made available to the course centres you are applying to.

The deadline for submitting references is 6 December 2019. Please allow yourself and your referees plenty of time to get them organised.

We have information about:

  • Choosing your referees
    • What do the references cover?
    • Who can be a referee?
    • Can I re-use references from previous years?

We suggest that you send your referees a copy of our Factsheet for Referees, which gives basic information about references, and you may also wish to send them our Guide for Referees, which takes them through the reference process screen by screen:
