What is required in terms of references?

Your references form a significant part of your application and it is important that they are submitted according to the required criteria.  

GLOCAL applications require two supporting reference letters on official headed paper. These should typically be academic references but in cases where this is not possible then a reference from a current employer may be accepted instead.

References should be dated within the last 12 months, written on official letter headed paper and must include the referee’s signature or official stamp.  Unofficial references will not be accepted.

If your referee prefers their reference to remain confidential, they can email the reference to provided the email is from your referee’s professional email account and contains their full employee name and address.

We will not accept references sent from personal email addresses or via a third party.
