Do I need to provide references with my application?

You do not need to include reference letters with your application. These will be requested directly by the University if required. Please therefore ensure that you carefully enter the correct email addresses for your referees.

For all applications (Postgraduate Taught and Research), you must include the names and contact details of two referees, normally academics, who are familiar with your undergraduate and/or postgraduate studies. If you have taken a higher degree or postgraduate course, one of your referees should normally be from that institution. If you have been away from higher education for some time, you may use an employer as one of your referees.
