References/Letter of Recommendation

​Applicants are normally required to provide an academic reference/letter of recommendation. If a reference/letter of recommendation is not required this will not be included as part of the information required at application.

Certain courses also require additional references/letters of recommendation and this will be stipulated on our entry criteria and the Universities direct application system called self service.

A reference/letter of recommendation will need to evidence the details of the referee and be signed and dated.

References/letters of recommendations for undergraduate applicants are normally required from an applicant’s school/college or previous education establishment.

Postgraduate applicant’s references will normally be required to provide a reference from their university or place of study. Where an applicant has not been in education for more than five years a reference/letter of recommendation from an employer may be used at the University’s discretion.
