    So...

    I've written about the fact that I'm volunteering at a primary school in my personal statement.

    Whilst work experience etc isn't an entry requirement to the degree, do I have to provide a reference from them as part of my application?? Just wondering

    Thanks

    Nope.

    I volunteered in my local library and mentioned it on my PS without submitting any supplementary references etc.
