We require one academic reference on School/College headed paper, or sent from an official School/College email account, from your current teacher or supervisor.
If your referee has knowledge of your exceptional family circumstance or financial difficulties, they can include this information in your scholarship reference.
However, if your referee is unable to contribute information on your financial situation - which applies in many cases - this will not be seen as a disadvantage the application.
The same reference used for your application for admission can be supplied. It is not possible for the Financial Support Office to access the references submitted with a UCAS application.
