QuestionCan I apply through UCAS without an academic reference?
No, we will need you to provide an academic reference with your UCAS application, ideally from your current school/college/university.
If you are applying to transfer from another university, you will usually need to supply a reference from one of your current tutors rather than from your previous school or college.
If you have been out of education for some time and would like to supply a work reference in place of an academic reference you will need to check that course you are applying for will accept this.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any further information about this.
