Hi all, I left my undergrad in 2017, and I've not applied for my post graduate. I already hit all the requirements, I've submitted my application pending academic references. I emailed my old tutors a fortnight ago, and I've not had any responses back other than an automated one saying the tutor was in hospital and obviously wouldn't be able to respond.

I was lucky enough to run into one of my old college tutors who said he'll be happy to write me a reference, which he is doing. That means I still need one more, now obviously it's still only early, but considering I emailed various tutors over a fortnight ago and still haven't gotten a response, is there anything else I can do? I know they almost certainly get bombarded with people asking for references, but I'm kind of in a terrible place where I can't do the course without them, and don't want to keep emailing them, because it'll just annoy them. Is it worth me emailing the uni itself, or the school of computing itself? Anything else I could do? thanks.

try and speak to someone from your old school to write a reference but if that doesn't work than you can email the uni and explain whats going on im sure they will understand.

See, I thought of this. I still know people from secondary school and college, I just figured they'd look down on me a bit if I got two references from before my undergrad

it doesn't matter about how they feel, they should respect you for asking them for help
