    This might be stupid question or might have been asked before (though I checked!) but can I use same references when applying to two different universities or two different courses at the same uni? Does there have to be full uni name mentioned in the reference? It's for postgrad + I already got accepted to one uni and I used references that did not mention the course or uni at all but I want to apply to another too and not sure if that's ok.

    Refs will usually only write one ref and send it to multiple places so yes that's fine.

    Great, that's what I thought but then I sent something to Geography admission at QMUL and they said "uh no, you may not be able to use your old references as they will probably referring to another institute" so I thought that my tutors have to mention Uni or at least course in the references but that's good, thanks a lot
