    So I attend a training college as an apprentice and this year I applied to uni. Obliviously I needed a reference for this and I chose one of my tutors. As it is a training college they don't often do this and the reference he wrote is really short and sweet (like 4 lines). Could this affect my application or will a university look past it and understand? Thanks a lot.

    If they need more then they’ll contact your referee directly or ask you for a second reference
