if you re-apply, does your reference have to be from an old school teacher, or can it be from someone else, if so, who?

Your reference doesn't have to be a former teacher.
If you apply as an individual, you can pretty much use a reference from anyone, preferably someone credible (i.e. not your "best friend").

WHO SHOULD WRITE YOUR REFERENCE?
Your referee should know you well enough to write about you and if you are
suitable for higher education.We will not accept references from family, other
relatives or friends.We cannot process your application without full details of
a referee and their reference.
If you have only recently left school or college, you should ask your
headteacher, principal or an appropriate teacher or tutor to provide a reference.
If you are a mature student, you should ask a responsible person who knows
you to provide your reference. This could be an employer, training officer,
careers adviser, a teacher on a recent relevant further education course,
or a senior colleague in employment or voluntary work.Last edited by Knogle; 14-04-2006 at 16:09.
