References Where should my references be sent? You are required to submit TWO separate references, which must have been written within the last 12 months, and include the name and contact details of the referee, as well as their relationship to you. Duplicated references will not be accepted, and may result in your application being void. It is the applicant's responsibility to contact their referees and ensure they supply their references before the application deadline. PLEASE NOTE: Your application will only be reviewed if both references have been received.
