    Do UAL check references and contact them? That is, if you applied as an individual through UCAS? Anyone know anything about this?

    I only ask because my reference goes on business trips across the globe often so it may be a struggle to contact them.

    It's dependent on the individual college/school. When I applied to CSM, the registrar for the School of Fashion & Textiles sent a letter to my references for confirmation of their inclusion in my application. However, another friend who applied to Chelsea said the college didn't contact his references. The reference is usually sufficient on its own. You can always state the availability of your reference on your application.
