    I'm a bit out of the loop since I'm a mature applicant and I can't remember how this works.

    I'm sending an e-mail to someone to ask if they can be my UCAS reference and rather than explaining why I want to do the degree etc I'd rather they read my PS. Once I include them on the UCAS form will they be able to see my whole application?

    Thanks

    once you click the "section completed" box in the personal statement section, whoever is listed as your referee will be able to see it. so yes

    If you're applying independently they won't see anything. If you're applying through a school/college, they will.
