Referees and References
In addition to an applicant's academic record and personal
statement, references are also taken into account when an
application is assessed.

What is a referee?
A referee in this context is someone who is willing to be
contacted and provide information about your personal qualities,
performance and suitability for a course.
Before nominating someone as your referee on
an application, you must seek their permission, and if you fail to
do this, do not be surprised if no reference is provided. You
should also check that they are able and willing to complete their
reference within the relevant timescale.
