Requirements for 2021/22 entry.
You should note that it is your responsibility to ensure that we receive two references in support of your application. Your application will not be considered until we have received a reference from each of the referees you nominate in your online application.
In most cases we require two academic references. An ?academic? referee is someone who has taught you during your university-level studies. All references must be translated into English.
Current students and applicants who graduated from their most recent study after January 2019 must nominate two academic referees. References should be from a teaching member of your current (or, if you have graduated, from your most recent) university department.
Applicants who graduated from their most recent study before January 2019 may nominate one non-academic referee in place of one of your academic references. This should normally be a reference from your most recent employer.
Applicants who graduated from their most recent study before January 2017 may nominate two professional referees if they are unable to provide academic references. It is in your interests to supply academic references wherever possible.
Applicants for Executive programmes should note that all Executive programmes are willing to consider one academic and one professional reference. Additionally, the following programmes are willing to consider two professional references:
? Executive MSc Cities (K4U1)
? Executive MSc International Strategy and Diplomacy (L2UJ)
? Executive Global MSc Management (N2U9)
? Executive MSc Social Business and Entrepreneurship (N2UC)
? Executive MSc Health Economics, Outcomes and Management in Cardiovascular Sciences (L4CS)
? Executive MSc Health Economics, Policy and Management (L4HM)
? Double Executive MSc Health Policy (with Chicago) (L4HP)
Applicants for the Executive Master of Laws (M3U5) are required to provide at least one academic reference. Two professional references will be acceptable if you have been out of school for five years or more and are unable to obtain an academic reference. Applicants for the Executive MSc in Evaluation of Health Care Interventions and Outcomes in collaboration with NICE (L4HN) may provide two professional references if they are unable to provide an academic reference.
How to provide references: You must nominate two referees by providing their contact details in your online application. You should use each referee?s academic/official email address when nominating your referees.Your referees will then receive a reference request email from us asking them to submit a reference via our online referee portal. This is a secure and confidential service for referees and helps speed up the decision-making process.
