    Hi! I'm writing to ask some information about the reference letter and how to chose a referee. I'm an EU and mature student and about to send an application for this or next year. The problem is that since I have been out of school for almost 5 years I don't have a teacher able to write my fererence letter. I cannot ask my current employer even, since she doesn't know I'm applying to go and study abroad. Can a private tutor that has been following me for the last months or maybe a work collegue from my previous job write it? I have everything ready, grades and personal statement, the only thing is this.
    Otherwise I don't have anyone, but I know that having a reference gives more chances to be accepted!
    Thanks in advance.
