    Not sure if I've accidentally already posted this but anyway, to cut a long story short, I no longer have a reference for my university application as I found out today that my college tutor has left the college and there is no way for me to get in contact with her.

    She is pretty much my only hope as I've looked at other possible references but my school teachers who taught me have all left/retired now, and my previous managers have either been sacked or made redundant. Does anyone know if I go back to the college would they give me her personal email/phone number if I explain the situation, or do you think that they would email her on my behalf?? I seriously feel like the universe is against me right now haha

    I would contact the college and explain, surely they can put you in contact with her or offer another solution. Might also be better to physically go into the college if they have a student enquires or support place, I just find things move faster that way.

    The college will not give you her contact details as that breaks data protection.

    The college will be able to write a reference from you from their records.
