I'm looking to apply to do an MSc Actuarial Science at University College Dublin. The application needs two reference letters and logic tells that they want academic references.
The only issue now is that it's been 2.5 years since I graduated. I did well and got a 2.1 MMATH Master of Maths but for the sake of references, I'm not sure if my old Advisor of Studies remembers me at all. My disseratation supervisor might remember me, because I met with him a lot though.
Will they be able to write these letters?

Yes, that should be fine. University teaching staff are well used to providing references for students they barely knew or perhaps don't remember at all. They'll start by reading your student record and you might find that this jogs their memory into something more specific. They see hundreds of students each year and it's unlikely that they'll remember more than a handful in any kind of detail.
Contact your most likely referees - you shouldn't find that there's a problem.Last edited by Klix88; 30-12-2012 at 11:33.
