    I've just started up my UCAS application for 2017 having completed my Access Diploma in June, but since I am applying independently (not through a college) I wasn't sure if I should ask a previous tutor from my Access course or if I should ask my current employer for a reference?

    Okay, I assumed so, I just wasn't sure if they'd want to for an ex student, seeing as they have a hundred new students that they need to write references for, thank you
