    I have heard Newman arent brilliant, i think a friend went there to do Social work, and left because most lectures got cancelled.

    But just email them something along the lines of,

    Dear whoever

    I came and did some work experience on the (insert date) and have been asked by one of my chosen universities that i need a reference from you before im considered for a place. Please would you be able to do this for me.

    Yours sincerely,
    your name

    You wouldnt be the one to send it off though, as you would be able to doctor it, so the head would have to send it off for you, there should be an email address with it? If not i would get back to Worcester and ask them how they want to receive the reference.

    Hope this is of help.

    I also took them off my list because of that. As i dont really see why it is needed... But then again i do.. XD

    I replaced it with a local uni to me, just in case i decide against moving away to Plymouth XD.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I'll have a chat with them and see if that is the case.

    hm yeah it's like i'd have to wait an extra week or so to get a reference + the libarary is like 15 mins walk abway from uni at worcester, so i dont really think thats a good place for me haha... and yh newman seemed pretty good

    Yeah, you dont want that, as you want easy access at 12am to study and not walking the streets on your own. Campus ones are way better :P dont know where Plymouths is but at a guess it would be on campus, with it being a campus uni XD

    Okay, it might be for teaching but i guess it depends. Still havent gotten in touch with them im afraid. too lazy :P will ask now while im thinking about it XD

    We have heard and she doesnt recommend the Uni because they had most lecture cancelled and crap like that, also they are very disorganised. You're better off going somewhere else like Derby (I think you mentioned)

    Edit, they'll ask a few people they know and see what it is like. And ill get back to you asap.

    Yeah, when im going to get something done, i'll do it, also my friend was quick at replying yeah, still go with it as you never know. Im only going to put 3 down i think, just because of travel costs but i might also put Derby on my list. But I dont mind how far i go, but wanting to avoid certain areas haha.

    I'm not sure really, how about Bedford? as i think they do it, but it might be further away than you want. I can only think of the ones you have already put down.

    How far are you until you'll be applying? As im just about to finalise my PS and then im done

    Nice, hope they can get something done quickly for you. Going to send it off tomorrow hopefully, even if it means staying after college to sort things out properly. As im not sure if im in on Weds as my tutor for my lessons is not going to be there so there might be no point in going in just for a tutorial.

    I'm wanting to move away. Staying in London doesnt appeal to me, having lived here for nearly 20 years now XD. I don't mind the distance, as i know people down in Plymouth so it won't be too bad.
