How to write a Reference?

The person who writes a reference for you should know you well enough to write about you. References from family, other relatives or friends are not accepted. If you are at school or college, or have only left recently, you should ask your head teacher, principal or an appropriate teacher or tutor to write this.

Guidance for Referees: We would appreciate if you could use your letter headed paper. Please give an assessment of the suitability of the applicant for the higher education programme they have applied for and where possible, including the following points:
Existing achievement, with particular reference to subjects relating to the applicant’s chosen programme
Academic potential, including predicted results or performance
Motivation and commitment towards the chosen programme
Any relevant skills achievement, whether certified or not
Powers of analysis and independent thought
Any additional factors which may have affected, or will affect in the future, their performance
Information about any special needs and other requirements.

What should I provide when I am asked to get a reference?

Undergraduate students must provide two academic references. Postgraduate students should also try to provide two academic references. If this is not possible (for example if you have been out of education for more than three years) you may provide two work-related references as an alternative.

References must:
Be on the headed paper of the institution with an official stamp
State the name of the company/institution to which the referee is affiliated as well as their position and relationship to the applicant
Attest to the academic ability of the student and their general character and suitability for the programme

What other documentation should I provide together with my application form?

Together with the application form we will also need a copy of the following documents:
Your academic qualifications
A copy of your transcripts/ result reports. Please include your Ordinary and Advanced Level result documents and any work-related training that you have attended related to Management skills.

Please check with your bank when transferring the funds for details. In case a cheque is dishonoured, you will be liable for any penalty charges your bank (s) may levy.

A decision on your application will be communicated to you as soon as possible. If you are accepted, an offer of a place of study will be made and you will be invited to accept this offer, otherwise you would be issued a rejection letter that would state the reason why your application was unsuccessful.

In some cases an offer may be conditional. Where this is the case you will be informed of any additional requirements before an unconditional offer can be made. In this case please liaise closely with the Admissions staff to ensure that all conditions can be lifted as quickly as possible.

Students, who are made an offer of a place, need to pay the first instalment (non-refundable) of their fees (equivalent to 10% of the first year fee) at the time of accepting the offer in order to secure a place on the programme.
