Personal Tutors will normally provide a reference for students who require one for a job or further study. They should always be contacted in advance; it is very helpful to provide the tutor with a CV and a brief statement about reasons for applying for the position. Other members of staff who have had significant contact with the student, for instance second year tutors and project supervisors, will usually also be happy to provide a reference, but again they should be asked in advance.
