Hello everybody. Im a Year 12 student who is about to start his UCAS application procedure. Ive got a decent amount of work experience outside school but the question is how do references work. Do you have to give a list of these outside references to your school teacher, who would write and approve the whole thing for you. How do you incorporate outside references in personal statement?

For me it has been my guidance teacher who has written my reference. It was standard procedure at my school that each pupil's reference would be written by their guidance teacher. I think for people at school it's generally a teacher who writes it for you. And it's only one reference you give.

Check UCAS's site: http://www.ucas.com/students/startap...ly09/reference

You don't. Your reference is an academic reference, not a work related one, even if we are talking about work experience that is relevant to your course choice.

You wouldn't include outside references. Maybe if you were applying as a mature student or something, but as you're still in school there's no reason for not having your reference written by a teacher.

Use a school reference written by your referee or a teacher that knows you well.
